No Man’s Sky is a well known game for well known reasons, and after seeing multiple patches to fix bugs and improve the gameplay, the game has finally received its first content update.
Known as the Foundation Update, it adds new features like base building, new modes and new ships. Check out the trailer for the update below:
You can also read the patch notes for complete details:
• Normal mode is the original chilled exploration experience.
• Creative mode allows players to explore the universe without limits, and build the biggest base they can (more on this below).
• Survival mode creates a much more challenging endurance experience.
Secondly, the update brings base building to the game, allowing players to start building a homestead on a planet of their choosing. Bases are used for shelter and storage, but we’ve also introduced farming crops and you can hire NPCs from Space Stations to research new tech and products for you. Players can teleport back to their base at any time.
Freighters are the third key update being introduced in Update 1. These ships can be found cruising through space and, upon boarding, players can choose to buy the loyalty of the ship’s captain to take control of them. Goods can be teleported to your freighter from on-planet, and stockpiled for trading, and owned freighters can be summoned from anywhere in the Galaxy.
There’s a number of other improvements to the game too, including requested tweaks such as Stackable Products, larger inventories, a quick menu and more.
No Man’s Sky was released for the PC and PlayStation 4 on 9th August.
