Sharing is caring!

This recently released game for PC and PS4, brand new from the indie studio ‘Hello Games’ has left many of its players slightly unsure about what to actually do. While it is very clear that the main point of the game is exploration and survival and there is a lot to explore (about 18 quintillion planets!) it may not be quite that clear at the beginning on how to do that.

Here are six tips that will get you started in the No Man’s Sky game.

  1. Take your time to explore the game world.

While the goal of the game is to reach the galactic core, there are so many worlds that you can explore until you actually reach it and each is amazing and worthwhile. Of course, you won’t be able to visit all of them.

  1. Find crashed ships

While exploring by ship you may find yourself without any money to upgrade said ship so it’s advisable that you look for crashed ships and you can use their materials to repair yours. Or, you can just move your stuff into a functional abandoned ship and carry on exploring.

  1. Save as often as possible

Sometimes, you will encounter an alien or bandits or just some glitch that will set you back and that is why you should save as often as possible. Or, you can enter and exit the ship because the game saves automatically every time you exit the ship.

  1. Befriend the locals

You’ll visit many planets and encounter many races, out of which three are very important: the Gek, the Vy’keen and the Kvorax. You can get many items from them if you befriend them but sometimes they may have a bone to pick with you.

  1. Feed the local animals

Feeding the animals on the planets will sometimes make them show you the locations of mine resources. They can also defend you from certain threats.

  1. Explore underground and underwater as well

Some important items can be found in caves and underwater and sometimes they can even be more important than the ones that you’ll find on the ground.
