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 // (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.
Destination[edit | edit source]
It shows the distance in light-years for the current destination.
