No Man's Sky 1.58 Update Adds Free Weekly Content; Here Are The Patch Notes
No Man's Sky is still evolving.
If you've completed the first space anomaly mission in No Man's Sky, then the next time you log in you'll receive a message to help specialist Polo and priest entity Nada explore a previously undetected corner of the universe. According to Murray, "The first chapter of Polo's research project examines a specific corner of the galaxy, where strange objects have begun spawning underground. Dedicated explorers who excavate and return them to the Space Anomaly will be rewarded with Quicksilver. Polo has constructed a new robotic companion to process this valuable substance into exclusive exotic collectables."
For this first week, Polo's robot will offer you the choice of six new base building parts, three decals, a new emote, and a new character customization. Your choice of rewards will expand in the coming weeks to over 50 different items, and you'll find new ways to earn Quicksilver too.
- New regional hubs submitted by Next explorers, including official community links for those who would like to join, as well as Euclid portal addresses for explorers who would simply like to visit.
- Discovery progress for all regional hubs, revealing how many bases have been claimed in each region, as well as how much space is yet to be discovered.
- The names of the current leading explorers for each regional hub.
- An indication of where the first community research mission is taking place within the galaxy.
- The final batch of Atlas Rises POIs, completing this archive of memories.
No Man's Sky's Patch 1.58 is also officially live across Xbox One, PS4, and PC and it addresses most of the issues the Hello Games team has been handling with hot fixes since the Next update. The full patch notes can be found in the same blog post described above, but we've outlined them here as well.
