No Man's Sky - a look back on our biggest year yet!

Hello! Four years ago we announced FOUNDATION, our first major update for No Man’s Sky, we promised “It won’t be our largest update, but it is the start of something”. Those words have proved very true, as No Man’s Sky continues to grow and evolve. Each year since our game has changed perhaps more than most, with PATHFINDER, ATLAS RISES, NEXT, ABYSS and VISIONS - making No Man's Sky broader and deeper. BEYOND came out last y...

While we appreciate that this update is, by definition, focussed towards our console community, we did want to hi...

Halloween Update

Hello Everyone! Even though the drama, adventure and exotic colours of Origins are still fresh in our minds, as the nights have drawn in and the skies have darkened we can’t help but be drawn back to the lost ships and haunted wrecks of the Desolation update. With Halloween around the corner, we wanted to give players a reason to return to the darkest corners of the galaxy. The corroded hulls of derelict freighters can now b...

No Man's Sky Desolation Update

Hello, Being a small dot amongst the stars can bring a sense of awe and wonder, but we've always wanted to explore a little more those feelings of fear and dread that come from being alone in the depths of space. Terror in the face of the unknown, or the dawning realisation that you're treading in the footsteps of those who met a lonely end at the edge of the universe - it's a rich science fiction tradition, and one not really touched on in No Man's Sky - until now. The Desolation Update adds ab...

Introducing...Cross Play!

No Man's Sky Living Ship Update

Hello! 2019 was an important year for No Man’s Sky. It was the year we brought the entire game into VR and much expanded multiplayer in the free BEYOND update. Everyone who owned the game was overnight able to play the entire game in virtual reality and it has been extremely cool to see VR and non-VR players joining up in the Nexus to explore, embark on missions and build bases together. We followed Beyond with two more content updates last year, SYNTHESIS and BYTEBEAT, and we are starting 2020 ...
