Explore space from a different perspective with the Living Ship update. Introducing a new class of biological ship, a new story mission, mysterious space encounters, space NPCs and more.
These biological ships have their own set of unique organic technologies, all procedurally generated for a customised, evolved loadout.
A new series of missions, Starbirth, will take players through the ancient Korvax experiments that led to the birth of these sentient starships.
Players who wish to incubate, grow and ultimately fly their own living ship should visit the Space Anomaly and follow the call of the Void Egg…
Pilot your sentient ship from its strange, organic cockpit. Grasp vein-covered tendrils to suggest directions to the living craft, and examine the unsettling details in full 360° in VR.
Experience rare encounters with mysterious space objects and strange new lifeforms while pulsing through a star system.
Investigating these may often yield rewards – or more dangerous encounters!
NPCs now have the potential to hail your communicator in space.
These alien lifeforms often stock specialty items for sale – but some may need assistance, or approach with more questionable intentions…
Managing items in the inventory has become easier with a new shortcut to instantly divide a stack in half.
Multiplayer exploration has been streamlined with the ability to warp as a group. Team up with friends and strangers on the Space Anomaly, then choose your exit destination to continue your journey together.
Game performance is improved across the board, with a focus on runtime optimisations for terrain, cloud and water shaders for PSVR and PS4.
