NO MAN’S SKY UPDATE 2.4 PATCH NOTES
Soar and stomp across the landscape with the Exo Mech update. Introducing a fully controllable mechanical walker, new Exocraft technologies, improvements to base building, and much more.
The Minotaur Heavy Exocraft Hybrid is an all-new way to explore planets. This advanced mechanical walker dominates the landscape and offers unique new technologies.
ADVANCED JUMP CAPABILITIES
The Minotaur has a powerful jetpack that allows it to soar and slide with power and grace, bringing speed and excitement to planetary traversal.
- No Man’s Sky Synthesis update: Release date, PS4 and Xbox patch notes
Power your way through storms in the unique and compact interior of your new Minotaur mechanical walker. Steer, stride and leap from the atmospheric perspective of a mech pilot, and examine extra planetary data readouts in full 360° in VR.
EXPANDED EXPLORATION ABILITIES
The Minotaur is immune to all planetary hazards and is able to directly collect valuable materials, keeping its pilot safe at all times.
The Minotaur’s mining laser can be upgraded to a Terrain Manipulator, allowing it to bore directly through the earth.
NEW EXOCRAFT TECHNOLOGIES
Exocraft can now be upgraded with solar panels to recharge their engines during daylight.
IMPROVED EXOCRAFT SCANNING
All Exocraft equipped with the Signal Booster necessary to perform scans will now find that their scan reveals all nearby points of interest, pointing the way to objects usually found only through use of the Analysis Visor.
SUMMON FROM FREIGHTERS
Players who own a freighter may now build an Orbital Exocraft Materialiser.
This powerful new technology allows you to summon your Exocraft whenever your freighter is present in the current star system.
NEW EXOCRAFT DECALS
Players who have unlocked decals from the Quicksilver Companion Robot can now use these exotic decals to customise their Exocraft.
A large number of visual improvements have been made to the lighting model, particularly outside on planets. Thin, moving objects such as grass, now appear lighter and more stable, and GTAO performance has been optimised.
PC players can now scale their game resolution without scaling UI resolution, offering more options for improving performance while keeping UI crisp.
Players may now construct an Electrical Cloaking Unit, a new base part that will hide power lines across the entire base. Power lines will still be visible while in construction mode.
BASE BUILDING QUALITY OF LIFE
Several fixes and quality of life improvements have been made to featured bases, including the ability to quickly return to the Space Anomaly (and your previous system) after visiting a base.
Console players may now disable the complexity limit, at the cost of some performance in large bases.
