Hi, It’s amazing to me that seven years have passed since No Man’s Sky was released and to celebrate, today we’re releasing our biggest update of the year: No Man’s Sky Echoes.
Our goal with Echoes is to breathe new life into the universe, with a new robotic race, our first race introduced since its launch in 2016. We’ve also overhauled space combat with a focus on creating truly epic space battles, introducing freighter-on-freighter battles for the first time.
new robot race
In Echoes, travelers will discover a never-before-seen and long-hidden race of robots with rich new story content: Participate in robot tasks and rituals to earn a variety of mechanical parts to create their own robotic avatar.
New pirate freighters bring huge space battles to the universe. Defend the fleets from the pirates. Fly through enemy trenches to sabotage their shields and destroy them!
Players can search for and form their own sci-fi ceremonial staff. Level up with unique technology to mine and blast your way through the universe.
Travelers can now search, trade, and scrap weapons, allowing players to become multi-tool junk dealers. Travelers can also choose from a wider range of weapons and tools, including the staff and a powerful new Atlas weapon.
Chronicle of your trip
This year we introduced the ability to store a catalog of players’ most wonderful discoveries. A new holographic museum allows you to decorate and display your favorite weird and wonderful discoveries at your base for others to visit and see.
The Voyagers expedition begins soon for adventurers looking to explore the universe and catalog its wonders. Along with a Twitch Drops campaign, this brings a wealth of new content and rewards for players.
Improved quality dynamics in PS VR2
Render quality, stability, and performance have improved across the board in this update. For PS VR2 players in particular, foved rendering brings a huge quality improvement throughout the game. Whether you’re standing in a vista of a planetary landscape or marveling at the beauty and expanse of the solar system, the virtual universe has never looked better.
These are just a few of the things PlayStation gamers can look forward to when they dive into the Echoes update today.
It’s already been a busy year for the small No Man’s Sky team with the release of the Fractal and Interceptor updates, along with the massive Singularity expedition. Matchly Echoes celebrates our seventh anniversary by making our universe more exciting, dangerous and interesting to explore. No Man’s Sky Echoes is out now for PS5, PS4, PS VR2, and PS VR.
Our journey continues.
