It’s been a few months, which means it’s time for another No Man’s Sky update.
This time, developer Hello Games is introducing the Outlaws update, focusing on shady dealings and space hackers. You will now find Outlaw systems more hostile than other areas in the game. If you choose, you will have the option of going on missions set by pirates, smuggling illegal goods across the galaxy and infiltrating the authorities.
With a heavy focus on space action, Hello Games is also making some major changes to ships and flying. Space combat has been overhauled to be more responsive, while adding new visual effects from weapons and armor to enemy ships. Weapons now have secondary effects and you will also be able to fight within the planet’s atmosphere.
but that is not all. You can now set wings to form a swarm, and there’s also a new type of solar spacecraft, which is the first to be added to the game since the live ships were updated a few years ago.
As you can see in the trailer above, there are also new cosmetic items like capes that come with new cloth simulation physics, so you can feel like a superhero as you smuggle goods.
As always, you can expect all of this content to play in the VR version of the game as well. At this point, No Man’s Sky should definitely be the biggest VR title out there? This makes us all more hopeful for a PSVR 2 release when the headset launches later.
