No Man’s Sky Gets Massive Mechs in Free Update

Traverse and explore hostile planetary surfaces in the safety of your very own exo-suit.

Hello! It has been a few weeks now since we released the Living Ship update for No Man’s Sky, and it seems like PS4 players can’t get enough of exploring the universe in these crazy organic beings that they’ve grown from an egg! It’s been especially satisfying to see PS VR players jump inside their ship for the first time and marvel/recoil at the organic innards!

Since the Beyond update last year, we have resolved to increase the frequency of our updates and ensure that, as well as working on larger, more all-encompassing content, we are also able to deliver more digestible drops to keep our PlayStation community entertained. This seems more important now than ever.

And so, today, we are able to announce the latest free update to No Man’s Sky for PS4 owners: the Exo Mech update.

Players are already familiar with the suite of exocraft which players can research and unlock in the game: the Nomad, the Roamer, the Colossus and the Pilgrim. Today, we introduce a fifth: the Minotaur.

The Minotaur Exocraft is a unique new exocraft / suit hybrid and introduces a different way to explore planets. This mechanical walker shields its pilot against hostile extraterrestrial atmospheres, providing immunity against hazards such as radioactivity and extreme temperatures. Its special defining feature, though, is the freedom of movement it affords. The Minotaur’s powerful jetpack allows it to soar powerfully through the air, and land on terrain with a satisfying slide. We think it’s a lot of fun to stomp around in, especially in PS VR.

We hope you enjoy this latest update and look forward to bringing you more in the coming months. Until then, keep safe. 

Our journey continues.

Sean

  • Extremely happy to see more free updates. Thank you.

  • Looks cool!!

    • The only thing left I’m hoping for is more types and varieties of animal life. Especially those giant sandworms in the original trailer.

  • WOW! Game of the decade.

  • Awesome updates continue for this game, except the most glaring update that’s still missing:

    Is there an ETA as to when PS4 Pro support will be added to PSVR mode? Pretty please?

    • Yes I wonder it too. This game is so much more fun in VR but with this crappy screen resolution it is impossible for me to play without having a bad headache.
      They really need to improve PS VR graphics!

    • Yes, please. The PSVR+PS4 Pro combo patch is the only thing I’m missing in this awesome game. I’m playing mostly on PSVR only so resolution imrpovement in NMS would be a cure for my eyes ;)

  • It’s unclear, does this update go live today?

  • it is really awesome update

  • I can’t build any of the hazard protection modules despite buying the plans. Not the orbital exocraft materializer, either. They just aren’t in the menu.

    And the jetpack is really weak and doesn’t go far at all. Dunno what “slide” you mean, it lands like a ton of bricks.

    Also, the Polo bobblehead figurine won’t show up in any of my ships.

    Are these PS4 Pro bugs, or does everyone have these issues?

  • Good Job!

  • Thanks for all you and your team have done, Sean. I’ve loved the game from the beginning, and these new updates just help keep it fresh.

    Y’all are awesome.

  • As DropD put it … “Awesome”.
    Looks like a nice addition.

  • Sounds awesome, can’t wait to try it. Will have to boot it back up after Final Fantasy 7 remake.

  • Been wanting to jump back into PS VR, this looks like a perfect reason to do so. Thank you guys for all your hard work.

  • Sean can I cross play No Mans Sky on PCVR too? I have it for PSVR. Does cross play work together for VR / Non-VR players too. Thanks.

  • NMS has constantly been a major source of amusement to me since day one back in 2016.

    I’m glad I can live through this pandemic in its universe on psvr…
