No Man’s Sky Outlaws New Conent
Space pirates are one of the most popular science fiction tropes since the dawn of space movies, and pirates have finally arrived in No Man’s Sky. The space is now filled with Outlaw Stations which players can use to become pirates themselves and participate in smuggling activities. Players interested in becoming a pirate can visit one of many Outlaw Stations. There, you can complete a series of pirate missions that will introduce the new features. Asides from smuggling, you can purchase illegal goods from the black market, or acquire upgrades that can’t be obtained legally.
The biggest star of the new update is a brand new starship – the Solar Starship. This is the first new starship in the game since 2022. It has a unique, solar-powered sail, and offers a variety of new upgrades. If you are against pirates, you can always choose the other side and fight against smuggles in now improved space combat, Another exciting new feature is Squadrons. Players can now recruit their own personal squadron to aid them in the ship battles. Instal the squadron bay upgrade to access this feature.
