No Man’s Sky NEXT, the biggest update to ever hit the game is now available, bringing multiplayer, new ships, and a ton of other exciting changes to the game. There’s a lot to cover, which is why we’ve updated our No Man’s Sky guide to include the latest and most in-depth information and strategy content that you’ll need in order to survive the harsh planets of No Man’s Sky and make it out alive.

No Man’s Sky Quick Tips

  • Scan planets using your visor to discover new plants, items, and creatures. You can then upload the data that you find to acquire currency, which can then be used to purchase items from the Galactic Trade Market.
  • The price of resources and other items will change depending on the system that you’re hanging out in, so make sure you check prices in different systems to get the most cash for your goods.
  • Explore the surface of planets for buildings, compounds, and crashed ships and debris. You can often repair different broken machines to acquire new items, materials, and even blueprints for new technology.
  • Follow the main storyline of the game for a good while. This will unlock new technology automatically, as well as teach you all of the basics of the game, which can come in handy later on.
  • Build yourself a base early on, so that you always have a place to return to and recover. Try to make sure you choose a planet without any harsh negatives, as you’ll be battling the elements quite a bit if you build your camp on a planet with toxic rain, harsh weather or other dangerous elements.
  • Pirates can find you and attack you while you’re exploring. Be ready and make sure you know how to fight. You’ll want to keep your weapons ready when exploring deep space, as they can come from anywhere.
