Studio founder Sean Murray posts an apple on twitter.com, announcing the upcoming update for No Man’s Sky. We take a closer look and tell you what content and innovations you can expect.
What’s the deal? An apple is enough to make the No Man’s Sky fan community go up like a rocket. To explain: Chief developer Sean Murray had posted an apple on Twitter and then retweeted it in a different color. This begs the question, what content is in the soon-to-be-released update?
About the latest update: Interceptor Update contains new ships & threats
New “Apple” update for No Man’s Sky – This content awaits you.
In the forums and on social media, fans are already looking forward to the big summer update and speculating about the content. However, we have to put a damper on things here. The apple update of No Man’s Sky is probably not the long-awaited summer update, which is supposed to deliver the procedural space stations. However, it is possible that developer Hello Games will kill two sentinels with one stone. But let’s get to the content:
No Man’s Sky port for macOS and iPad.
The apple that Murray posted certainly stands for a big news: No Man’s Sky is to be released on macOS and the iPad. This port has been in the works for a few years now, but until now Apple devices usually didn’t deliver the performance needed to play No Man’s Sky.
However, Apple is now changing that with the new “Metal API”, which makes resolution scaling possible for MacOS devices. Thus, even the entry-level models and IPads should be able to display No Man’s Sky smoothly.
A leaker reports in a relevant Discord that the corresponding update for No Man’s Sky brings many adjustments and innovations for the technology. While searching through the files, he also came across solid new content. However, the leaker says that this content does not seem to be ready and is perhaps reserved for the big summer update.
Leaker finds space stations & expeditions in update file
While the Apple update is meant to benefit Mac fans more and address, improve and fix many technical aspects, content could still appear! After all, the procedural space stations are already in the game files of No Man’s Sky. But here again the warning that the stations could only appear in a following update.
However, the developers have already finished the space stations to such an extent that modders have already integrated them into the current version of the game. The new space stations are interesting because they are always built differently and have a different look due to the way they are generated.
What about expeditions? The leaker also found hints of a new expedition in the game files. This new expedition, like the space stations, will appear either with the apple update or at a later date with the summer update of No Man’s Sky.
Expeditions are time-limited journeys through the galaxy that start at a fixed starting point. Others may focus on exploring a single planet. No matter what your task, you’ll always receive a generous reward!
When will the apple update of No Man’s Sky be released?
The apple update of No Man’s Sky does not have a fixed release date yet. However, a suitable timeframe would be the Apple conference between June 05 and June 09, 2023. As soon as we learn more about the release, content or expeditions, we will update this article.
