Free No Man’s Sky Endurance update makes your freighter feel like home

No Man’s Sky just received its 12th free update titled Endurance. This update overhauls freighters and fleets, including a new bridge that contains a Quick Access Teleporter, allowing players to warp anywhere in the universe. Freighters will feature new NPCs who live and work on these celestial bases, offering companionship, while also helping you keep things running.

Another welcome inclusion is the addition of exterior walkways, allowing you to take in the sights of space, which is equally as terrifying as it is beautiful. And speaking of space, Endurance has also implemented a wider variety of asteroids, giving players access to more resources.

Endurance includes a brand-new combat mission that takes players on a journey to an infested planet. Your job is to rid the planet of the infection, but doing so will be no easy feat. “Infested planets now have an increased chance of titan worm activity,” Hello Games said.

A lengthy list of bug fixes and quality of life improvements also comes alongside the Endurance update, and includes the ability to adjust the sensitivity of cursor controls.

No Man’s Sky first launched in 2016 and has received constant updates since then. It has come a long way since its barebones beginnings, and Hello Games says it’s not finished updating No Man’s Sky — not by a longshot.

The game is on most current platforms and will launch for Nintendo Switch this October.

No Man's Sky

No Man's Sky has totally reinvented itself over the past few years. Originally, the game was a little bit of a disappointment. With lagging, bugs, and glitches, the game was often left on players' shelves. However, as time went on, Hello Games found new and creative ways to not only fix some of the problems but also give us new reasons to return to the stars.

The most recent patch for the game even introduced a new way to interact with the environment. We're now able to have alien animal companions to help us explore the universe in ways we haven't done before. Each animal friend will lend their different skills to help you explore the galaxy and find new materials. If you're having trouble figuring out how to manage your new, sweet alien friends, we have some tips!

No Man's Sky has finally become the game Hello Games promised. You're able to travel to any number of planets across a vast array of galaxies to explore the universe. This game allows you to slowly (but surely) make your way from planet to planet, building bases and studying life on other planets. Although the game is very entertaining, things are always better with friends.

If you're looking to start a whole city on a planet, playing with someone else can really help. No Man's Sky can be fun solo, but playing with someone adds that extra layer of safety against sentinels, unforgiving terrain, and biological horrors. If you're struggling with how to add friends to this game, you've come to the right place!
