If steam updates at the same time as the Xbone launch, which... is not guaranteed.

Seems they've deleted all the old reviews off the NMS Steam store.

Steam currently has NO reviews for any game at all. Seems to be a bug. Sorry! Timing was just perfect.

I liquidated my old base and all it’s living glass to sort of give myself a “soft restart” with just me and my ship and a boatload of credits (10m).

I’m hoping the freighter changes mean I can actually afford a freighter now, instead of having to grind out 110million. If someone who’s playing right when it drops finds out about the new promised “earlier” freighters, drop in and post about it so I can read from work and be jealous.

There was never a time for the PS4 version, and since it's a title update, it was always reasonable to assume it would appear when the normal Tuesday store update appears - anywhere from 2 to 4 hours from now.

A whole bunch of people assumed it would go live on PSN at the same time as on XBOX but there was never any reason to assume that. Every game that has a title update, the update comes whenever Sony get it put up. Maybe something like Monster Hunter had a midnight patch, I want to say that happened? But otherwise, it'll be there when the day's store update goes through.

You'll be given a free freighter as part of the tutorial/intro. Not saying it'll be amazing, but you'll get one.

Yeah both launch times and patch drops seem to conjure up just absolutely tons of “facts” about when and how they’ll release. People create self fulfilling prophecies of “They’re going to release all three platforms at the exact same time, because if they didn’t people would get mad.” That doesn’t happen, so they get mad.

That is fantastic news as it lets me rush to my space fantasy faster. I don’t want to play creative mode, I do want some challenge. But the amount of grinding regular mode had last time I played was too much for me.

Last time owning a freighter was a late-game milestone because you could only have the one, so it had to be a significant challenge and accomplishment. Now you can apparently own an entire fleet and exploit it for money faster so you have to be able to acquire them early and often.

My impression is you get a free "starter" freighter, and if you see a cooler one later then you have to buy it the old fashioned way. I dunno if the prices have dropped at all, or if you're meant to be making money hand over fist from frigate missions instead? But that's my understanding of the new system.

"The entire history of this incarnation is one of temporal orbits, retcons, paradoxes, parallel time lines, reiterations, and divergences. How anyone can make head or tail of all this chaos, I don't know."


I remember finally getting a freighter a year ago when I last played, and it seemed pretty pointless at the time. Transferring everything around took forever, and you couldn’t really do anything with it.

I’d just love to have one more extra storage where I can shove one stack of each of those sorts of “secondary” resources like nickel, gold, whatever, so that if I change ships or multitools I have a nice stock build to replace fully all the mods that I liked.

...and I hope they might change how easy it is to transfer things to it, given there’s significant changes around them, else my above plan sounds pretty bunk.

I’m glad they’re integrating ships and freighter to the “tutorial”/start of the game. Give the players the basic on all aspect of the game then let them loose in the universe.

Aside from your suit inventory, your suit Cargo inventory, your starship inventory, your freighter inventory and your Base Storage Crate inventories (10 of them!), you mean?

Anime Store Adventure

My ship isn’t that big and half full of mods, as is my suit. The base isn’t easy to transfer to (unless they changed that or I missed it) so storing like 10 different stacks that i can easily shift my current suit inventory to is nontrivial.

Yes, they added trophies for reaching the center in Survival and Permadeath when those modes were patched in.

The PS Store just started updating - it now refers to the game as "No Man's Sky NEXT" (and it's on sale).

Should be live in the next hour or so, then.

I hope we can do the freighter tutorial on a current save and not just if you start new. I really don't want to grind from nothing again.

Just 6 more hours until I am home from work and hopefully can play on my ps4!

My ps4 is in rest Mode so it better download and install the update on it's own.

It's a 9.5GB download

vv I misread, apparently its it's a 9.8gb download for me?

Anyway, it's done now. See you on the other side!

Used to play this on PS4 when it launched and it was a cool stoner game. Now I wanna try all the cool new stuff on my PS4 pro and it just blows up the fans to max, like the drat console is gonna take off and fly away. No other game does this, not even Horizon Zero Dawn. Any fix?

I've found taking off the hard drive cover and pointing a small desk fan directly at it significantly reduced overall fan noise.
