No Man's Sky Update Overhauls Space Combat, Adds Pirate Underground

No Man’s Sky keeps getting bigger with its next expansion, subtitled Outlaws. This free update promises to introduce players to the game’s criminal underworld by focusing largely on activities like smuggling and pirate raids when it goes live today.

As teased in the video below, Outlaws turns willing denizens of No Man’s Sky into rebels, allowing them to take on illicit missions at space stations overrun with dangerous criminals. Both solar sail-equipped starships (the game’s first new starships in over two years) and upgraded space combat will aid players in achieving these goals, which can apparently net some huge rewards if survived.

The update’s full patch notes can be found on the official website, but here’s a rundown of the main bullet points from the devs at Hello Games themselves:

No Man’s Sky recently won the award for “Evolving Game” at BAFTA’s British Academy Games Awards, and it’s easy to see why. The work Hello Games continues to do on the project is astounding, especially considering the controversies that both led up to the game’s release and overshadowed it well after launch.

I’ll go out on a limb and say No Man’s Sky is a bit too complicated now for me personally—I rather enjoyed the somber, meditative state in which it debuted—but it’s clear players are finally getting what they wanted out of the game all those years ago.
