Even though it was released eight years back, No Man’s Sky still has plenty of content to enjoy and cherish. The game developers Hello Games have released regular updates to keep the game enjoyable. Sean Murphy, the creator of No Man’s Sky, hinted at another update a few weeks into the Fractal update. Guess what? He was right all along!
Today, six weeks following the previous update, the game received its 25th major update. The latest update is coined as the Interceptor Update, and it is now available on PC, PS4 and PS5, Xbox One and Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and VR.
The Interceptor update includes a new class of spaceships, corrupted worlds, and new gameplay mechanics. There will also be new enemies, including giant spiders and small crabs, corrupted Sentinel drones, and much more.
The update will mark the corrupted planets dotted around the galaxy that can be explored. Since these worlds pack threats, those who face the perils of the corrupted planets will be appropriately rewarded. If you dare to enter these corrupted planets and battle the deadly crab creatures within, you will be rewarded with the Interceptor, the Hijacked Laser weapon, and the Aeron Turbojet backpack. Fortune favors the brave!
Furthermore, among the new additions are the improvement in the graphics. The game developers promise that the Interception update will offer the smoothest and best-looking visual experience yet.
According to the patch notes on all Xbox consoles, the rendering resolution adapts to the situation in real time whenever the bandwidth of the GPU allows. This will help maintain FPS in visually complex scenes. Finally, there are some improvements in VR features, with improved visuals and wrist interface controls.
To cut it short, the Interceptor update adds a lot of meat to the fire to keep the fans busy. The official patch notes detail the new features added to No Man’s Sky.
