No Man's Sky - Living Ship Update

Announcing the Living Ship Update for No Man’s Sky on Xbox One

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.

No Man's Sky - Living Ship Update

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.

No Man's Sky - 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.

No Man’s Sky comes complete with all 26 major updates up to and including Omega. Inspired by the adventure and imagination that we love from classic science-fiction, No Man's Sky presents you with a galaxy to explore, filled with unique planets and lifeforms, and constant danger and action. In No Man's Sky, every star is the light of a distant sun, each orbited by planets filled with life, and you can go to any of them you choose. Fly smoothly from deep space to planetary surfaces, with no loading screens, and no limits. In this infinite procedurally generated universe, you'll discover places and creatures that no other players have seen before – and perhaps never will again. Embark on an epic voyage At the centre of the galaxy lies a irresistible pulse which draws you on a journey towards it to learn the true nature of the cosmos. But, facing hostile creatures and fierce pirates, you'll know that death comes at a cost, and survival will be down to the choices you make over how you upgrade your ship, your weapon and suit. Find your own destiny Your voyage through No Man's Sky is up to you. Will you be a fighter, preying on the weak and taking their riches, or taking out pirates for their bounties? Power is yours if you upgrade your ship for speed and weaponry. Or a trader? Find rich resources on forgotten worlds and exploit them for the highest prices. Invest in more cargo space and you'll reap huge rewards. Or perhaps an explorer? Go beyond the known frontier and discover places and things that no one has ever seen before. Upgrade your engines to jump ever farther, and strengthen your suit for survival in toxic environments that would kill the unwary. Share your journey The galaxy is a living, breathing place. Trade convoys travel between stars, factions vie for territory, pirates hunt the unwary, and the police are ever watching. Every other player lives in the same galaxy, and you can choose to share your discoveries with them on a map that spans known space. Perhaps you will see the results of their actions as well as your own…
