Explore mysterious abandoned freighters in No Man’s Sky: Desolation

Procedurally-generated derelict interiors contain rewards and dangers for bold travellers willing to explore.

Hello, last month we introduced cross-play to No Man’s Sky, and it has been extremely satisfying to see our PS4 community finally able to play with their friends on other platforms. We have seen a flurry of multiplayer activity as long-lost friends and complete strangers alike meet up to explore the universe, visit each other’s bases, or join together on missions, either in PS VR or non-VR.

This month, we are introducing an entirely new environment for players to experience with our latest free update, No Man’s Sky: Desolation.

Mysterious derelict freighters have been sighted in deep space. Alone or in groups, players can breach the emergency airlock and explore the hazardous, procedurally generated, interiors. These vessels are rich with salvage and story for any bold traveller brave enough to retrieve them, including otherwise unobtainable upgrades for your own capital ship.

But these missions are fraught with danger.

In the panic to flee the ship, hazardous items spill out, defense systems get scrambled and environment controls begin to fail. Some vessels may even have been overrun by hostile alien lifeforms… You may want to take some friends along to increase your chances of making it out alive.

The Desolation update also brings improvements and balance changes to weapons and enemies for a faster, more dynamic combat experience. Weapon balance, effects and feel have been balanced and tweaked to provide not just a more engaging combat experience on these alien infested frigates, but across the game as well. With these updates as well as the new abandoned freighters to explore, there is even more reason to explore the far-flung and dangerous reaches of the universe.

The No Man’s Sky team has had a very busy year, introducing ail and now abandoned freighters to explore. This is our fourth major free update released this year, and more is yet to come!

Our journey continues.

Thank you,

Sean

  • Incredible support for this game.

  • This game will never leave my hard drive. Any plans for a PS5 update?

  • Damn, this sounds good. Thank you for the update.

  • The quality and sheer quantity of free updates to this already incredible experience never fails to amaze. Even the premise of the game itself is something wholly unique and incomprehensibly large in scale. Thanks for everything you guys do.

  • When the game launched, one of my favourite things was finding abandoned buildings with some horror story. The problem was, that was the extent to those findings. This update sounds really cool!!

  • Thanks Sean and the hello games crew. I never gave up on you guys! I love the support you all give to this game. Wish more companies were like you. Keep up the amazing job.

  • Disabling 24p output in the video playback menu doesn’t work – it still sends 24p signal to the TV
    Could it be fixed in a future firmware update?

  • Hi hello games, I cannot play this game without playing it in VR. ever since I first discovered this game. my friend told me about it, and yes it just goes on forever. very good technology. I tried playing it on normal mode which was more fun than cheating on easy mode, and I haven’t played it on hard mode yet, but I still enjoy playing it on easy mode sometimes, where you don’t have to worry about resources or health to get a break. So I can have a social life because it’s such a big game LOL, and it doesn’t take as long on easy mode to explore in progress. So I will just create 3 save data instead, easy normal and hard. Just for fun I’ll try the hardest one where when you die you lose everything like if it were real life, later on. thanks for a good game and for the latest update.

  • I just need some aim support!!
