No Man’s Sky Synthesis Release

Hello Everyone,

It’s strange to think that it’s only been a few months since we released Beyond, our largest and most ambitious update for No Man’s Sky. That update now feels so integral that it’s hard to remember a time before you could experience the game in VR, milk an alien creature, or visit the Space Anomaly to group up with other explorers on multiplayer missions.

Since then, the pace hasn’t let up. While the team has continued to dream up content for the next steps of our ongoing journey, we’ve also listened to the voices in the community to help shape a more immediate update. We’ve taken your feedback, combined it with our own, and put together a set of polish and quality of life fixes that we are calling the Synthesis update.

Thanksgiving feels like the right time for this release. Thank you, everyone, for supporting this game that means so much to us. Your passion is an essential part of this journey.

Synthesis launches on all platforms today, free for all existing players. This update is intended to bring a number of meaningful improvements to the moment-to-moment experience of playing No Man’s Sky, and also to broaden the end-game possibilities for our most veteran players. We hope you enjoy it, and we look forward to bringing you more features and content for the game soon.
