A lot of new content. Hello Games

A new update is now live in No Man's Sky which introduces players to a new gameplay experience and expanded lore. There's a lot to be excited about the Interceptor update with its fresh content that begins with a new corruption spreading across the universe. This adds new enemies, resources and even a Starship class.

Here's what the new Interceptor update offers:

  • Hugely Varied New Starship
    • Players can expand their fleet by salvaging the perfect Sentinel ship or collecting a whole range of Interceptors.
  • Corrupt Worlds
    • A lot of worlds have succumbed to corruption with strange crystals sprouting from the earth and the sentinel guardians being twisted into bizarre new forms.
    • Players can explore these purple-hazed worlds to find new buildings, crashed interceptors, and secret equipment.
  • New Enemy Types
    • Keep an eye out for huge spider-like enemies and their small crab-like children.
    • There are also new corrupted drones armed with stealth technology, flamethrower, and explosive weaponry.
  • New Tech
    • Interceptor ships are powered by unique new Sentinel technology which need new resources to construct and fuel. New technologies include the Anti-Gravity Well and Crimson Core.
    • There are also new Sentinel Multi-Tools and the large and winged Sentinel jetpack too.
  • Custom Wonders
    • Players can now curate their own collection of favorite discoveries with the Personal Records section of the Wonders catalog.
    • Players can also bookmark spectacular planets, bizarre alien creatures, and favorite flowers.
  • Sentinel Capital Ships
    • Huge Sentinel Capital ships feature compelling space combat along with an ultimate goal for weaponry heavy ships.
    • Defeating Sentinel freighter isn't only incredibly bombastic but also clears the “wanted” status of players while letting them earn new high-value rewards.

Visual Improvements for Xbox

On Xbox, the new update now has the game render resolution situationally adapting in real time to improve visual quality wherever GPU bandwidth allows while also maintaining a consistent framerate in visually complex scenes. The innovative technique has been combined with Xbox support for AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution 2.0 technology, leading to the smoothest and best-looking visual experience by far.

No Man’s Sky was first released in 2016 on PC and PlayStation 4, then later on Xbox One in 2018. The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S versions came out in November 2020. The version for Nintendo Switch was released in 2022.
