No Man’s Sky Echoes Update Adds a New Robotic Race, Among Other Things



Hello Games has unveiled Echoes, the latest update for its seven year-old space exploration game No Man’s Sky.

Echoes, which launches today, August 24, adds a new robotic race — the first race introduced to No Man’s Sky since its launch back in 2016. Hello Games has also overhauled space combat, introducing freighter-to-freighter battles for the first time.

Players will discover a never-before-seen, long-hidden race of robots. You get to take on robot assignments and rituals to earn mechanical parts to create your own robotic avatar. You’ll also need to defend fleets from pirates in huge space battles and get to fly through enemy trenches to sabotage their shields before blowing the pirate freighters up.

Elsewhere, you can assemble your own sci-fi ceremonial staff and level it up with new tech to mine and battle with. The new holographic museum lets you decorate and display your discoveries in your base for others to see.

PSVR 2 players should notice an improvement in rendering quality, while on Nintendo Switch performance improvements and a new anti-aliasing solution makes visuals crisper on big screen and in handheld, Hello Games said.

The patch notes are over on the No Man’s Sky website.
