Outlaws, the 19th update for No Man's Sky, launches today

Today we are happy to announce our next and nineteenth update!

Pirates have taken over space stations across the universe, using them as bases from which to conduct smuggling operations and raids on neighboring planets and settlements. Players have a choice: join them as rogues and aid them in their nefarious activities, or go head-to-head in the newly rebalanced and dynamic space combat.

Fortunately, you are not alone in this fight. Players can now recruit their own squadron of pilots, who will drop in and join the fray as needed. Explore the galaxy to find your perfect companions, or upgrade your loyal crew from humble beginnings to an elite unit.

At the heart of the update is a new starship, the sophisticated new sail-equipped Solar class. This highly varied new ship comes with unique technology and is most commonly found in pirate-occupied systems.

Additionally, keen ship hunters will be able to find their perfect version without losing any of their existing ships, as the maximum number of ships has been increased from six to nine. All ships now also come with a specialized high-capacity cargo inventory, perfect for storing contraband goods…

All this and much, much more awaits you in the Outlaws update.

outlaw stations

Outlaw systems are dangerous, lawless places with frequent conflicts. But all of this presents an opportunity for players with a keen eye to raid passing starships.

A new series of quests leads players to these new hotbeds of rebellion, and once there, they’ll find a specialized bounty master with new pirate quests; black market technology dealers with a variety of suspicious upgrades; and the opportunity to acquire valuable illegal goods in other parts of the galaxy. Hacking-minded players can also acquire a forged passport that will allow them to restore any reputation damage caused by their activities.

solar starship

No Man’s Sky’s first new starship since early 2020 is a sophisticated, high-tech flyer. With unique solar-powered sail and engine technology, this is the boat of choice for those looking to speed through the stars.

Although all sunships share the sail philosophy, there is considerable variety across the class. Ship hunters can expect to scour the galaxy for the perfect combination to match their existing fleet.

Smuggling

Illegal goods purchased from outlaw systems can be smuggled into regulated spaces, where they can be sold for a significant profit. But with the smuggler’s life comes danger: the Sentinels are now looking for contraband, and discovery is just one investigation away.

cargo inventories

All players, not just smugglers, will benefit from the addition of specialized cargo inventories for all starships. These high-capacity slots can store large amounts of cargo, and storage-hungry players can unlock additional slots from the ship upgrade terminal found on every space station.

squads

Players can now recruit and upgrade their own personal squad of wingmen to aid them in ship-to-ship combat! Once a squad bay has been installed on your capital ship, NPC ships can be recruited by speaking to their pilots. Each pilot comes with their own abilities and can be upgraded over time to improve combat ability.

space combat

Space combat has been rebalanced to offer speed and excitement. Handling has been improved; weapons have new visual effects; enemy starships have shields; and depth has been added to weapon selection with a variety of specialized secondary effects, such as slowing enemy engines or disabling shield systems.

Ship-to-ship combat can now occur within a planet’s atmosphere – watch out for pirate raids on planetary buildings, as successfully defending an outpost or settlement offers a health reward!

Flight accessibility has been significantly improved with a new auto-follow mode. This option, set within the main options page, allows players to automatically align their ship with their current target. This mode retains the player’s input on the controls, but avoids any frustration with locating and locking on enemy ships.

Our journey continues.
