No Man’s Sky Announces Its 20th Major Free Update — Endurance


Hello Games has announced the 20th major free update for No Man’s Sky called Endurance, which focuses on the overhaul of cargo ships, frigates and fleets.

No Man’s Sky’s first major content update, Foundation, introduced cargo ships to the game back in 2016, and Endurance aims to add much more to that experience by the game’s 6th anniversary. Creator Sean Murray wrote: “In our very first update, we introduced the ability to own and operate cargo ships, and we were excited to take the opportunity to completely reinvent that. Managing a fleet to explore the unknown has always been the core of this. fantasy from science fiction, from Battlestar to Starfleet, and the fans really like it.”


The full patch notes are available on the No Man’s Sky website, but in short, Endurance will offer much more options for managing your own mega ships and fleets in general. Cargo bridges have been improved to provide instant access to teleportation and teleportation, cargo bases can be built on a much larger scale, and external sections can be built on the cargo ships themselves, along with portholes and windows for viewing space.

Cargo ships will now also be able to grow and produce food inside, and improvements will allow you to analyze planets from space without landing on them. A new expedition called Polestar will focus on traveling on a large ship. Along with the cargo ships themselves, No Man’s Sky deep space is being deepened by larger asteroid fields, black holes, nebulae and an improved atmosphere.

Endurance is another proof that Hello Games has not finished working on No Man’s Sky yet, despite having started work on a new ambitious project. Along with these content updates, the game will also appear on the Nintendo Switch this October, and the PSVR 2 version will be released alongside Sony’s new headset.
