Following on from the announcement yesterday of new upcoming content for the No Man’s Sky game in the form of the Path Finder update.
Chris Hohbein from developer Hello Games has taken to the official PlayStation blog this week to reveal more details about what you can expect in the update as well as release a trailer to whet your appetite ahead of its release.
Features you can expect in the No Man’s Sky: Path Finder update include :
• PlayStation 4 Pro Support
• Improved Visuals
• Owning Multiple Ships
• Base Sharing Online
• New Vehicles — Exocraft
• Permadeath Mode
• Build Vehicle Race Tracks
• Ship Specializations and Classes
• Double the Base Building Variety
• Multi-tool Specialization and Classes
• New Weapon Modes
• Photo Mode
• Discovery Menu
• Quality of Life Improvements
• 50% more original music from 65daysofstatic
As the title suggests, Path Finder heralds a new era of planetary exploration in No Man’s Sky. New vehicles, called Exocraft, enable explorers to travel at great speed across even the most inhospitable planetary terrains. There are three Exocraft to unlock and collect through Base Building, each of which can be further improved with powerful weaponry, mining equipment, and long-range scanners to maximize their effectiveness.
For those seeking the ultimate challenge, we’ve introduced a brutally difficult new game mode called Permadeath. Not only does this mode mirror the high difficulty level of Survival mode (which, by the way, has been made harder with damaged ships crash landing on planets), but dying will also wipe your saves and start you from the beginning. Of course, this deserves recognition, so new Trophies have been introduced for Survival and Permadeath mode.
No Man’s Sky has never looked better, with a host of visual improvements including new high resolution textures, improved lighting, ambient occlusion, and of course PS4 Pro support. Players looking to capture their favorite moments can also make use of a new photo mode. This screenshot tool lets players change the time of day, increase or decrease fog and cloud levels, unlock their camera for the perfect angle, and even add filters to their screenshots. We can’t wait to see what the community can come up with!
As more details and trailers are released we will keep you up-to-date as always.
