No Man’s Sky, space exploration game with procedurally generated planets, received this Wednesday (1st) its 17th update. Entitled “Frontiers”, the additional content introduces occupied settlements on planets.
Now, when arriving in one of the worlds, the explorer can find small villages with buildings, dwellings and inhabitants with their own routines. The addition marks another step towards making the game’s planets richer and more alive.
It is still possible to become a settlement supervisor, becoming a leader for the citizens. Once in post, the player will be sought out by the settler population to map out city planning, treasure management, policy decisions and conflict resolution.
