No Man’s Sky WayPoint Update (4.0) Overhauls Gameplay Fundamentals
Hello, 2022 has been one of the busiest years for No Man’s Sky on PlayStation with the release of the Sentinel, Outlaws, Leviathan and Endurance updates as well as several more large expeditions, all free to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and Playstation VR owners.
That’s not all though. We are pleased to announce that our 4.0 update, Waypoint, is available to download today.
Waypoint brings an overhaul of design and balance, including inventories, milestones, cataloging and game modes. It also introduces hundreds of community-favorite quality of life improvements, both macro and micro.
Inventories have been overhauled, with ships, weapons and players having their level cap greatly increased. Survival, crafting, combat and controls can now all be customized to cater for travellers’ unique play styles.
Relaxed mode brings a new focus on sandbox exploration for travellers’ old and new. Meanwhile returning players are welcomed by a new information portal with a summary of their goals and progress.
For long-term players, a new milestone system, new collectibles and improved mission content brings new long term goals and challenge. With new streamlining and balance, Waypoint allows players to enjoy twenty major updates as a more cohesive whole.
This is hopefully the best time to be a No Man’s Sky player, whether you are a new explorer who benefits from our Relaxed Mode, a returning player who is welcomed back by a more cohesive gameplay experience, or a core player who is excited for the increased level cap and hundreds of quality of life improvements.
The leap from version 3.0 to 4.0 is perhaps our biggest generational jump so far. It’s an exciting moment, and marks a solid foundation for future updates. We can’t wait for players to experience Waypoint on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and PlayStation VR from today.
Our journey continues.
