- Echoes, No Man’s Sky’s biggest and free update of the year, is available to download today.
- Echoes’ adventure ultimately leads to the Robot People, who having been hiding in plain sight for all these years.
With the release of the Fractal and Interceptor updates, and the major Singularity expedition, Xbox, Windows, and Game Pass Travellers have already been treated to a wealth of riches from our small No Man’s Sky team this year. Today we’re pleased to announce that Echoes, our biggest (free) update of the year, is available to download… now!
Those Travellers who have been desperately seeking answers to the strange robotic artefacts which they have been encountering in recent updates will find their questions answered in Echoes.
The adventure that Echoes invites you to embark on ultimately leads to the Robot People, who, having been hiding in plain sight for all these years, finally choose to reveal themselves to you.

Like the Gek, Vy’keen, and Korvax, the Robot People are a whole new race — the first to be discovered in No Man’s Sky in seven years — with a history, lore, and culture all their own.
Their discovery also uncovers unique technologies which they have long-since developed, such as the impressive modular multi-tool staff which can be constructed in a dizzying number of combinations.
Travellers who are quietly enjoying unearthing the mysteries which surround this new race will need to be on their guard, however. The Pirates, an erstwhile foe in the Universe, have commandeered their own freighter fleets and a Pirate freighter is an intimidating threat. It will require the full firepower of your own fleet plus the agility of your starship fleet.
Blasting it from a distance will not be enough. Only the most courageous Travellers who are prepared to brave close quarters trench-runs under the enemy freighter’s shields will be able to isolate the threat and prevail in these epic space battles.
There are many more surprises in-store for Xbox, Windows, and Game Pass players when they dive back into No Man’s Sky’s Echoes update starting today.
Our journey continues.
