Death forces a player to reload the game.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Death plays an important rule in No Man's Sky[1] Although there is not a permanent death except in Permadeath mode, penalties are applied to the players depending on the conditions in which they die.

Death penalties=[edit | edit source]

  • Upon death (by losing all health points) the player loses all discoveries not uploaded to the Atlas, and all resources the player was carrying and had not stored/sold properly. However, the resources will be put in a "grave" where the player died so they can be collected again. (Note: Upon logging out your gravemarker will disappear)
  • See Starship destruction for rules regarding death and your starship.
  • Items such as the multi-tool, exosuit, jetpack and blueprints are not lost.
  • In Survival mode all resources the player was carrying are lost.
  • If the player dies in space while outside of their starship, such as by falling through an unloaded area, they will not receive any penalties. In a multiplayer game, the death message will display, "<player> died (Death by cosmic ray bombardment)".

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Each time the player dies, the screen fades to black and the player is presented with a quote.
