The Waypoint Update Ushers in a New Phase for No Man’s Sky

No Man’s Sky will get a huge new update with its Nintendo Switch release today. The Waypoint update pushes the game to version 4.0. 

Although the release of No Man’s Sky on Switch might not seem particularly momentous to existing players, however, the 4.0 update will add a lot of new features to the game.

According to Hello Games, this update is the “biggest generational jump so far” for the game. It adds a number of noteworthy changes, such as an upgraded inventory, a new relaxed mode, an increased level maximum for veteran space travelers, and a simplified save system. Given that the game will now be played on a portable device, many of changes are being made such that it is simpler to pick up and start playing the game.

The developer has worked to combine all of its previous content into a more seamless gaming experience by implementing this update, which carries out a thorough adjustment to both the game’s balance and its structure, along with multiple quality-of-life improvements.

The update places a greater emphasis on laying the groundwork for the game’s continued development in the years to come. According to Hello Games ” The leap from version 3.0 to 4.0 is perhaps our biggest generational jump so far. It’s an exciting moment, and marks a solid foundation for future updates ” 

The new Relaxed Mode attempts to provide a more simplified, speedier, and a shorter way to experience the game’s expansive space setting. Each player may tailor their experience with the game by switching to a custom game mode and adjusting the difficulty, graphics, audio, and other options to suit their preferences.

Long-term players will benefit from a reworked inventory system that significantly raises level caps for ships, weapons, and people. Additionally, a new information portal will break down all of your accomplishments and goals, which is helpful if you are a fan of the Game Save system.
