No Man’s Sky started off as a relatively barebones experience, but in recent years, it’s received a slew of updates that have made it into one of the best titles available on PC and consoles. Today, developer Hello Games released the Desolation patch that brings with it a number of bug fixes, but the biggest addition has to be abandoned freighters. According to the description, “Mysterious abandoned freighters floating in space and ripe for scavenging and looting in our latest free No Man’s Sky update.”
This should give you new ways to gather resources. We’ve been playing the update for an hour or so now, and the abandoned freighters are quite common in the galaxy. However, it seems like rewards are quite variable so what you get depends on your luck.
No Man’s Sky recently joined Xbox Game Pass so you can play it through your subscription on Xbox One and PC. The game is also Xbox One X Enhanced so it looks spectacular running at close to 4K resolution on Microsoft’s latest console. If you haven’t already, be sure to check out the game. It’s a lot of fun now!
