The developers from Hello Games have been hard at work on creating new content for players of No Man’s Sky. Over the past five months, the team released four major content updates: Synthesis, ByteBeat, Living Ship and Exo Mech, and the developers show no signs of slowing down after adjusting to the “new norm” of working remotely!
In the latest blog post, the team mentions that they are “working up some more ambitious additions to the universe, and have so much more planned for 2020 for [them] to feel excited about.”.
The latest update to No Man’s Sky, Exo Mech, introduced a fully controllable mechanical walker, new Exocraft technologies, improvements to base building and so much more.
The Minotaur Exocraft is a unique new exocraft / suit hybrid, and introduces a different way to explore planets. This mechanical walker shields its pilot against hostile extraterrestrial atmospheres, providing immunity against hazards such as radioactivity and extreme temperatures. Its special defining feature, though, is the freedom of movement it affords. The Minotaur’s powerful jetpack allows it to soar powerfully through the air, and land on terrain with a satisfying slide. We think it’s a lot of fun to stomp around in!
In addition to the Minotaur, the Exo Mech update brings a number of useful new exocraft technologies to the game, several quality of life improvements for base building, graphical enhancements, and much more.
