The No Man’s Sky In February’s Sentinel update, an incredible number of Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Game Pass travelers jumped back into the game to get ready for the increased firepower of the all-new weapons (including the combat mech) and try and take on the might of the newly equipped and reinforced Sentinel forces.
This month, players will encounter a new threat in the form of the emboldened space pirates as part of Outlaws, our 19e Updating. This gives you the chance to earn the pirates’ solar spaceship, the first new ship type introduced in No Man’s Sky in two years.
Pirates have been largely silent but constant presence in the No Man’s Sky universe for a long time, and any journey through space is bound to lead to a skirmish with them sooner or later.
Now the pirates have embarked on a campaign of colonization through the galaxies, using space stations as a base to occupy the surrounding system and carry out their smuggling activities. Upon encountering their rickety lairs, travelers can choose whether to confront them or ally with them in their nefarious smuggling activities.
Either way, the rewards are significant. The pirates possess a hitherto undiscovered technology in the form of the Solar Starship, an impressively fast and agile craft, notable for its magnificent sails that unfold in flight and retract on landing.
As with any other ship in the No Man’s Sky universe, there is a huge variety of sailing ships to encounter and add to your fleet. And with the number of ship slots increasing from 6 to 9, players won’t have to choose between these or give up any of their other hard-earned ships.
The ability to summon other ships from your fleet to battle with the new “squadrons” facility is another new addition introduced in the Outlaws update. Feeling outsmarted and defeated by a pirate attack? Call for backup at the push of a button and watch your wingmen come to your rescue.
These are just some of the many additions that come with the Outlaws update:
- Outlaw stations – Outlaws have taken over space stations across the galaxy!
- Solar spaceship – No Man’s Skys first new spaceship since the beginning of 2020 is a high-tech, sophisticated kite.
- smuggling – Illegal goods bought in outlaw systems can be smuggled into the regulated space where they can be sold for a significant profit.
- Freight Stocks – All players, not just the smugglers, will benefit from the addition of specialist cargo supplies to all starships.
- Squadrons -Players can now recruit and upgrade their own personal squad of wingmen to aid them in ship-to-ship combat!
- space battle – Space battles have been rebalanced for speed and excitement.
All players can download the free Outlaws update today.
Our journey continues.
