Hello Games has just released a new major update for No Man’s Sky. According to the release notes, the Exo Mech Update adds a fully controllable mechanical walker. Moreover, it brings new Exocraft technologies, improvements to base building, and much more.
Going into more details, this patch adds the Minotaur Heavy Exocraft Hybrid. This walker is an all-new way to explore planets. According to the developers, this advanced mechanical walker dominates the landscape and offers unique new technologies.
The Minotaur has also a powerful jetpack that allows it to soar and slide with power and grace, bringing speed and excitement to planetary traversal. Not only that, but the Minotaur is immune to all planetary hazards and is able to directly collect valuable materials, keeping its pilot safe at all times. Furthermore, its mining laser can be upgraded to a Terrain Manipulator, allowing it to bore directly through the earth.
Players will also be able now to upgrade Exocraft with solar panels to recharge their engines during daylight. Additionally, all Exocraft equipped with the Signal Booster necessary to perform scans will now find that their scan reveals all nearby points of interest.
As always, Steam will download this patch the next time you launch its client. You can also find its complete changelog here.
