No Man’s Sky enjoyed a really big year in 2019. The release of the Beyond update in August saw, among many other things, a major overhaul to multiplayer and Xbox One players have always formed a major part of our online community.
Then, in November, we released Synthesis, a quality of life “housekeeping” update which went a long way towards weaving together the different aspects of the game and making a more unified cohesive experience for all players, regardless of their playstyles.
As we look forward to 2020, we are changing tack a little and challenging ourselves to deliver more frequent updates so that our Xbox One players are never too far away from new content.
In this vein, we are announcing today another free update for No Man’s Sky players: the Living Ship update.
As the name suggests, this update brings a whole new race of biological spaceships to the game, organic entities that players will be able to nurture from an egg and grow into a full-blown flyable ship! These new craft look and move like nothing else in the universe and will be a unique addition to your fleet.
In addition to the living ships, we are also adding more variety to space exploration in the form of points of interest which players will encounter as they traverse the different solar systems, as well as NPC ship encounters in space, and a raft of quality of life improvements.
Our small team at Hello Games has really enjoyed working on this latest update, and we hope our Xbox One players get a kick out of these new additions.
Our journey continues.
