No Man's Sky With Another Big Update

Hello Games continues to develop No Man's Sky with a number of new features and improvements in update 4.20 „Interceptor”.

Just a month and a half ago, a massive update was released, called Fractal, and today No Man's Sky received another big update - Interceptor. Patch 4.20 is now available for download on PC and consoles, and with it a number of new features and improvements have come to the game. Some of them are presented in the trailer below.

A large part of the novelties is related to the ongoing invasion of mechanical Sentinels, which resulted in the appearance of warped planets. These spheres feature ubiquitous crystals, as well as unique Sentinel units and resources and objects present only on polluted worlds. The Space Anomaly station will also feature new missions that require visiting these planets.

In addition, while traversing space we will come across a variety of Guardian ships, but also their wrecks, which can be acquired and refurbished as our possessions. Similarly, players can capture technology, not only invaders, because on warped worlds we will come across abandoned camps that hide many secrets.

During clashes - including with Sentinels - you will also notice the improved combat system. In addition, the possibility of damaging and even destroying huge flagships, which have remained untouchable since the game's release, has been introduced.
