Way to go!
We’ve already shared the news of No Man’s Sky launching for Switch today, but this launch happens to come alongside the 4.0 update to the game on other platforms. This update, dubbed Waypoint, is already included in the Switch release (physically and digitally), but the above trailer gives a good look at just what this update adds.
Hello Games has been working hard on the Waypoint update, and it changes an absolute ton with the core No Man’s Sky experience. Version 4.0 has overhauled fundamental elements of gameplay including game modes, inventory size and usability, milestones, journey cataloguing and much more.
The breakdown of everything in this update is a bit mind-boggling, but thankfully, Hello Games has put together a huge splash page that shows off everything included. If you want to sift through what this update has to offer, you can find the full details here.
