Good day! 2019 was an essential 12 months for No Man’s Sky on PlayStation. It was the 12 months we introduced all the sport into PS VR and far expanded multiplayer within the free Past replace. Everybody who owned the sport was in a single day in a position to play all the sport in digital actuality and it has been extraordinarily cool to see VR and non-VR gamers becoming a member of up within the Nexus to discover, embark on missions, and construct bases collectively.
We adopted Past with two extra content material updates final 12 months, Synthesis and Bytebeat, and we’re beginning 2020 as we imply to go on with one other free launch — the Dwelling Ship Replace — releasing right now.
The Dwelling Ship Replace introduces the primary new starship since Atlas Rises. However that is greater than only a ship — these are unusual and delightful creatures with lives of their very own. A brand new sequence of missions will take gamers by means of the traditional Korvax experiments that led to the delivery of those interstellar beings. Gamers who want to incubate, develop, and finally fly their very own residing ship ought to go to the House Anomaly and observe the decision of the Void Egg…
These stunning, natural, barely psychedelic ships are uniquely grown (and, as with every part within the No Man’s Sky universe, procedurally-generated).They’ll’t be upgraded in the identical means as a standard ship: each is individually hatched, with a novel set of inner organs that determines its talents. If you would like a quick hyperdrive, you’ll have to nurture the best form of life inside your ship…
As a lot consideration has been given to the inside of the ships as the outside. Void ships home you inside unusual, natural cockpits, requiring gamers to fly their ship by greedy vein-covered tendrils. It appears to be like and feels suitably unsettling to fly in VR!
The Dwelling Ship replace additionally brings a number of recent discoverables to deep house, including all-new house encounters to the off-planet expertise. Unusual new lifeforms and mysterious objects now wait between the planets, bringing extra selection and distinctive experiences to house journey.
You may need seen that since Past launched we’ve been experimenting with one thing new. Now we have been releasing common function updates each month or so, together with group missions and new content material each week.
In earlier years we’ve targeted the workforce round one massive replace. We’ve been actually pleased with the work we did on these enormous updates like Subsequent or Past, however one thing all the time bothered us… there have been usually eight months or extra the place we have been silent, and the group was left questioning if we’d ever replace the sport once more! In the meantime there have been smaller options that have been prepared earlier, however needed to wait till all the opposite work they have been wrapped up in was full.
While we proceed to work on extra radical issues long run within the background, within the meantime we’re experimenting with releasing content material we all know the group would get pleasure from as quickly as we’re in a position.
We’re having fun with these extra common updates, and the group appears to understand them too. This January had extra gamers on all platforms than any earlier 12 months, and the typical participant enjoys longer and extra various periods throughout the board. Hopefully of us shall be excited in regards to the shock of the Dwelling Ships replace too.
We hope PS4 gamers get pleasure from this new replace, hopefully the primary of many in 2020.
Our journey continues.
