Actual text[edit | edit source]

Hello everyone,

This week, we released our second No Man’s Sky update of 2020 – the Exo Mech. This update brings a number of improvements to the game, in particular to Exocraft and Base Building – but most excitingly, it introduces the new Minotaur mech!

We're especially proud of pulling this update (and trailer) together under these unusual working circumstances. Last month, the entire team moved to remote working, which is something new and unfamiliar for us. Our small team is used to working together very closely, and it feels strange not sitting next to each other in the office we built.

However, the team are so good at helping each other out that the transition has been smooth, and we’re so glad to be able to release this content we’ve been working hard on.

Community Research[edit | edit source]

Today, a new batch of exotic collectables has been generated at the Quicksilver Synthesis Companion’s station: plantable toxic flora.

The Blistering Mushroom, Watchful Protrusion and Tentacle Spire are now available to unlock, each bringing a unique alien aesthetic to habitable bases.

The Quicksilver Bot also applauds travellers for their efficient unlocking of the Curious Fauna Banner, Fine and Tasty Banner, and Banner of the Blob.

While the Bot's capacity for emotional expression is limited, it wishes to convey approval towards all who have chosen to decorate their ship cockpits with figurines of Polo or Nada. It seems pleased to see these bobble-headed collectables appreciated.

Weekend Missions[edit | edit source]

This past weekend’s offering of Gravitino Balls appears to have settled the most recent rift in reality. The system’s Gek inhabitants praise the heroic efforts of all who contributed.

Priest Entity Nada now reports an imminent new disturbance, though the data is sparse and the images hazy. The only clear detail is the grave of a Traveller, resting on a landscape bleached of colour…

Community Spotlight[edit | edit source]

We are always astonished by how much beautiful art pours out of the No Man’s Sky community. We feel so privileged to have such talented people playing our game. The living ship has inspired a number of recent creative pieces…

This black and white drawing by @mindflings is a stunning interpretation of the living ship.

We love the creativity of this organic “Ram” starship by @alexbpart!

And 3D alexndefo 3D printed their own physical living ship – we think it looks great!

Finally, some beautiful screenshots by OreoGamingGeek, Azazman117, Jack_Brown_Jnr and AcoupleofIrishfolk.

Thank you to everyone playing the Exo Mech Update, especially those taking the time to report any issues they encounter via Zendesk or console crash reporting.

Update 2.41[edit | edit source]

We are listening closely to your feedback, and have identified and resolved a number of gameplay and stability issues. Fixes for these were released on Steam experimental, and this patch, 2.41, is now live on PC. We'll be rolling out these fixes to other platforms as soon as possible.

Thank you so much for playing. Stay safe and healthy, and we will be back soon with more news. We have much more planned for No Man’s Sky this year.

Our journey continues.

Thank you,
