If you’ve been away from No Man’s Sky, you have a lot to look forward to in recent days from the games recent Living Ship update to the new Exo Mech content drop. Now, it’s time to explore in giant power armored suits.
Since its launch, No Man’s Sky has received quite a bit of content delivered to its fans. We’ve received an entirely overhauled experience, which sees crafting, gathering, and base-building get an all-new makeover alongside an entirely new story to enjoy with No Man’s Sky Next.
Now, we’ve received two new massive updates, both the Living Ship update, as well as an Exo Mech update have been dropped rather quickly, giving fans a chance to explore the game even further than before. This has been a steady trend since the No Man Sky – Beyond update, which dropped a year ago.
Sean Murray, the founder of Hello Games, has revealed a bit of insight tot heir patching process, “We have resolved to increase the frequency of our updates and ensure that, as well as working on larger, more all-encompassing content, we are also able to deliver more digestible drops to keep our PlayStation community entertained. This seems more important now than ever.”
The Exo Mech update will see players get to enjoy a brand-new set of tools for their explorations, which sees the Exo Mech do much the same as the others, with the exocraft suit: the Minotaur. The Minotaur joins the previously released exocrafts including the Nomad, the Roamer, the Colossus, and the Pilgrim in this latest update.
The Minotaur is the most unique of the five due to its capabilities as both an exocraft and an Exo Mech. Unlike the others, this exocraft is a suit hybrid, allowing it to move about in its bipedal mode, shielding its pilot against hostile extraterrestrial atmosphere while also providing them safety against the hazards of the planet that includes radioactivity and extreme temperatures.
The suit isn’t slow either, it’s able to maneuver rather quickly using its thrusters to get around, traversing difficult terrains with ease. However, it’s up to you to make the most of it, even with underwater planets. If you haven’t checked out No Man’s Sky in recent days, it’s definitely worth giving another chance thanks to the massive content drops.
