Galactic Map is a feature.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Galactic Map is a feature in No Man's Sky universe where the player can explore and discover star systems across the vast universe. It is available when the player is in space in their starship and can be accessed by pressing Psbutton.dpaddown.png/Key.m.png/Xboxbutton.dpaddown.png (PS4/PC/Xbox) or using the Freighter Warp Map on the freighter's bridge.

Visited systems are interconnected with faint grey lines and are marked with a white dot with a circle around it.

At the top of the Galactic Map screen there are two options available, Destination and Filter.

Additional information[edit | edit source]

  • On PC, when the player is focused on the system discovered by themselves, pressing KEYWIDE.TAB.png + Key.x.png will allow the player jump to nearest discovered system by themselves. (27th August, 2016)
  • On all platforms, a faint "whoosh" sound plays whenever you move the camera.
