No Mans Sky 4.0 Patch Notes – October 7, 2022
CUSTOM GAME MODES
Tailor every aspect of the game to your unique playstyle with custom game modes. Launch into the action quickly with an existing difficulty preset, or tinker with everything from economy to combat challenge to survival difficulty to perfect your experience.
A new continual auto-saving system allows you to fully immerse yourself in the journey without ever needing to think about saving your progress. Manual saves remain, giving you full control when needed.
Load and launch a personal trade rocket to automatically sell items on the Galactic Trade Network. Summon the device from anywhere on a planetary surface, then fire it off to the local Space Station for profit.
RELAXED GAME MODE
The new relaxed preset provides an accessible, laid-back experience of No Man’s Sky. Perfect for players who want to experience all facets of gameplay, from story to survival to combat, with reduced danger and minimal grind.
The detailed steps for crafting complex products can now be visualised as a tree, allowing explorers to collect and prepare sub-components in advance.
Nearly all difficulty settings can be tweaked and adjusted at any time, so you can continue to refine your play experience during the journey. Players with existing saves can adjust their settings to take advantage of new survival challenges or the simplicity of relaxed mode, and continue to change back and forth as they wish.
Interacting with damaged Drop Pods on planetary surfaces will now generate a marker and guide mission to assist the repair process, allowing players to find their way back if they need to gather materials.
Inventory specialisation has been clarified. Upgrades are now confined to technology slots, allowing more space for items and creating more interesting decisions about which upgrades to use.
To accompany this, inventory capacity has been dramatically expanded, with storage increased across all inventories from Exosuits to Freighters.
Historical fragments, alien lore, crucial story choices and more will be automatically collated and recorded as you uncover the many secrets hidden throughout the universe.
Asteroid fields now contain a range of new rare and exotic variants.
Journey Milestones may now be pinned from the Catalogue & Guide, providing helpful hints and tips to the Mission Log.
EASE OF USE
A huge number of features have been added or enhanced to improve ease of use across the game.
First-person head bob may now be disabled. The maximum number of Communication Station icons displayed at once has been reduced. Cursor control for players using a gamepad has been improved. Reticle targeting for interactions and wiring is now more forgiving and less fiddly.
SPACE VISUAL EFFECTS
Holograms, teleporters, and space station tractor beams have all been given a fresh breath of life with new visual effects.
The celebratory rank medals for progression through Faction and Journey Milestones have been made clearer and more visually diverse.
QUALITY OF LIFE
Scanning with the Analysis Visor has been accelerated, making discovery, especially of fast-moving creatures, more efficient.
Movement upgrades for the jetpack have been made more powerful.
Procedurally-generated technology modules now stack in the inventory.
Waypoints are now highlighted with an icon in the Analysis Visor.
Traveller graves will now manifest memory fragments, offering important technology upgrades to aid living Travellers on their journeys.
