No Man’s Sky: Orbital Update is Live With Space Station Overhaul, Ship Salvaging, and More

New Fleet Missions allow players to defend their frigates when attacked, and guild affiliations have been made more rewarding.

Hello Games has released a new update for No Man’s Sky, overhauling its space stations. They now sport more varied colors, new designs and details, but more importantly, getting to the necessary shops is more intuitive. If that’s not enough, their interiors vary heavily depending on the station. Check out the launch trailer below.

Those who carefully fostered relationships with different alien races can also reap some benefits, like discounts at associated vendors. You can also partake in Trade Surges and use the Economy Scanner in your ship to sell highly demanded resources for more. Speaking of starships, you can now create a custom ship using salvage and dismantle existing ships into different components.

There are also Fleet Missions, where you can assist your frigates in expeditions or assist during attacks (which affects the rewards); better rewards when affiliating with different guilds; and much more.

No Man’s Sky is available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, PC and Nintendo Switch. While Orbital is its 27th free update since launching in August 2016, Hello Games is also working on a new game, Light No Fire
