No Man’s Sky huge Origins update lands today, bringing with it the giant sandworms of legend

In 2013, No Man's Sky released a trailer that showed some big beefy sandworms. But, when the game released in 2016, there was not a sandworm in sight. Hello Games decided the glory of the sandworms was too much for us mere mortals. But today, it all changes. The sandworms cometh in No Man's Sky's massive 3.0 Origins update, which also adds billions of planets,…

No Man’s Sky’s next update Origins will launch next week

No Man's Sky is in for yet another update to its giant spacefaring simulation sometime next week, Hello games say. They've shared the title for the new update and hinted that it's the beginning of some big new piece of the game, but don't appear to be sharing more until the update and its patch notes drop next week. That won't stop me from taking…

Hello Games are working on another “huge, ambitious game like No Man’s Sky”

Whatever anyone thought of space simulation No Man's Sky when it launched—or now, several years and updates later—it can be said without question that it shot for the stars. Whole procedural planets can be explored, bases built, ships outfitted, and more. Their next project after the universe-size simulation was a small puzzle adventure called The Last Campfire that just launched last week. As for what…

No Man’s Sky adds haunted derelict ships in the Desolation Update

The sci-fi vision of No Man's Sky is mostly exploration and excitement, about seeing what procedurally-generated wonders might be on the other side of the next jump. The 'Desolation' update, released today, adds a touch more sci-fi horror as it sends players into derelict and alien-infested spaceships. These procedurally-generated freighter wrecks adrift in space have new loot to salvage, a bit like Space Hulk but…

Now Play This livestreamed virtual field trips and hiking tours last weekend

As with many other events in the year of Covid-19, Now Play This—the yearly exhibition on experimental game design—transitioned to a virtual space last weekend. Although not every planned part of the exhibition could be shown off in the new format, they still appeared to get up to some neat stuff that you can now watch back yourself. Game designer Gareth Damian Martin took players on…

No Man’s Sky now has living ships with creepy, veiny cockpits

No Man's Sky continues to grow and now it's grown something properly alive. It's an egg that hatches into a sentient ship. Sorry, am I reading that right? Yup, the spacefaring crafting simulation game now has ships that are alive and you pilot them from inside their apparently spacious cockpit heads. Where's the brain at, though? The Living Ship update is adding some other organic…

No Man’s Sky’s new device lets you design music for your base

According to Hello Games, players spend a lot of time designing their bases in No Man's Sky these days. They say a frequent player request was for the ability to add sounds or music to their planetary homes. Apparently one of the coders at Hello Games was quite into the idea and integrated a system for programatically generating music. Players can leave the algorithmic music…

No Man’s Sky Synthesis update lets you salvage ships and pack more heat

When Hello Games announced last week that their next update would improve nearly every part of No Man's Sky in some way, they weren't trading in hyperbole. The now-live Synthesis update squashes bugs and smooths out base building, sure. But the marquee additions that elevate it above mere housekeeping include the ability to salvage your ship for parts, carry a handful of multi-tools on your…

No Man’s Sky plans a little spit shine in Synthesis

The intrepid team of interstellar architects at Hello Games have already announced another update to No Man's Sky. Anyone hoping for something the size and impact of August's Beyond will need to ease off the hype-r drive (ugh): Synthesis, as founder Sean Murray called it, looks to be a bundle of "polish and small quality of life improvements" aimed at smoothing your experience traveling among…

No Man’s Sky explorer makes futuristic museum for alien relics

I won't pretend to understand what a Stabilised Reality Glitch is in spacefaring planet-hopper No Man's Sky, but when I see a bunch of them gathered together on podiums in a remote interplanetary museum, I will say: "cool". A player has done just that, bringing each of the rare trophy items to a minimalist monument and placing them on display, like some sort of curator…

No Man’s Sky Beyond is a bit broken, but patching has already begun

I was hoping to try No Man’s Sky in VR, but my current holodeck isn’t quite ready. My entire house is crammed in there while we continue to unpack after a recent move, though it turns out this is a good thing because reading up on people’s PC experiences has made it clear I should wait a week or two before I climb into the…

No Man’s Sky Beyond is rolling out now, PC release imminent

At some point today, the vast and giffable world of No Man’s Sky will update - it's already out on PS4, and it could happen any second on PC. I’m extremely excited about it. I like space, I like VR, and I like bonkers worlds with ridiculous proc-gen. I even like ambient multiplayer, and No Man’s Sky Beyond has all of those, now. And Hello…

Beyond saddle sores: No Man’s Sky update will let you ride spacecrabs in VR

Hello Games' next big update for No Man's Sky - coming August 14th - introduces virtual reality support and a new multiplayer social space called The Nexus, where players can convene with fellow space-farers to show off their gear and feasibly do other fun space-related activities. Finally, you will have a built-in audience for all that pent-up space-comedy material you've been saving ("What's the deal…

No Man’s Sky’s multiplayer goes interstellar with Beyond update this month.

"You want multiplayer?" Hello Games (probably) asked last summer, ahead of No Man's Sky's last big update, named Next. "Buddy, you've got it." At that point, I imagine a good chunk of the game's player base looked at the four-player offering, shrugged, and replied: "Sure, that's nice and all, but we were expecting... bigger."Personally, I was happy pottering about on my lonesome for a couple…

"There's a few things I hope to accomplish here," said Cameron G, a Sydney-based graphic designer behind the fundraiser to buy an advert on the billboard outside the Guilford office of Hello Games. "I want Hello Games to feel appreciated for their dedication and achievement with No Man's Sky. I want to raise money to donate to the Sydney Children's Hospital. I want to show all…

No Man’s Sky Beyond to add VR support this summer

At least half of the joy of No Man's Sky is soaking in its strange alien landscapes that its algorithms have generated for you. I reckon that sightseeing should be all the more impressive in virtual reality. During a Sony live-stream, Hello Games unveiled one more feature of their upcoming free expansion, Beyond - full VR support. Players with existing saves can put on a…
