Hello Games has released Patch 2.15 for No Man’s Sky. The new patch adds a number of features including new missions, featured bases, and more.
First up, starting “very shortly”, the first Space Anomaly weekend mission will go live. This mission tasks you and your fellow explorers with investigating a worrying pattern resonating across the universe. Each week, you’ll find a new chapter available between Friday evening and Monday morning. The missions will tell a story and offer significant quicksilver rewards to you if you follow them. Don’t worry if you miss any – Hello Games says the missions will continue to run “for the foreseeable future”.
Next up, there’s a new Featured Bases spotlight. From now on, you’ll be able to go to the Space Anomaly Teleporter and see a selection of the best bases No Man’s Sky players have been working on. These bases will change regularly, so it’s worth checking in from time to time to see what’s featured and to get some inspiration for your own base-building exploits. If you’d like your base to be featured, Hello Games says you should include your portal co-ordinates, current galaxy, username, and platform when you post it. This makes it easier for the devs to find you.
In addition to these new features, Hello Games has also made a lot of minor balance changes and gameplay tweaks. You can read the full patch notes for Patch 2.15 right here. The studio says it’s also hard at work on a new update which will “address a whole heap of community requests”. We don’t have a concrete release window for that yet, but the devs say it’s coming “fairly soon”.
You can grab No Man’s Sky right now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Although the game launched to an initially frosty reception, two major updates – Next and Beyond – and constant tweaks from Hello Games mean it’s in a much better place now than it was at launch.
