No Man’s Sky players are pretty used to doing everything by themselves. Before the game’s revitalizing Next update, players who stuck with the game since it launched turned its universe into a series of sprawling civilizations, many with their own government, police forces and even wars. Now that more players are joining the game with each update, players wonder whether Hello Games will add cities to planets where people can settle down.


The No Man’s Sky community is a vast frontier of unexplored space, with pockets of densely populated player-created communities.

When you first load into the game, you might end up right on top of one of those communities or fending for yourself galaxies away. Up until three months ago, the least resource-intensive way to get around, black hole travel, was a crapshoot — you’d enter a black hole and get popped out in a random place in the universe. But since one player realised that warp locations are no longer random, he’s been determined to make this “Black Hole Roulette” less of a gamble.


With the year winding down, I thought it’d be great to look at three games you can chill with as the impending apocalypse — I mean New Year’s — rolls in. Or, if you’d like to prepare for the end times with some hectic games that get your heart rate up, Gita was nice enough to give me her favourite stressful games of the year.


2018 has been a blur for me. It may just be that I’m in the last year of my twenties, or it could be that extreme events just did not stop happening this year.
As with any year, I took refuge in games when I wanted to relax, enjoy myself, socialise with friends, or just check out of reality for a while.


Even with the addition of multiplayer and some limited ways for players to grief one another, No Man’s Sky still isn’t built for large scale warfare. Player-made civilisations are finding other ways to resolve their differences. Namely, they do it through espionage.


Ever landed on a planet in No Man’s Sky, minding your own business, mining some carbon, when a sentinel comes over, scans you, and brings the fist of God down onto your cheerful space adventure? Fuck those guys.


No Man’s Sky’s latest update allows players to build bases anywhere, unlike the previous version of the game, where you could only build in preset locations. The update also added some new kinds of building materials, and allows players to build their bases up to delirious heights. Here are some of the coolest and wildest bases that players are making right now.


When you’re zooming through space in No Man’s Sky, sometimes you’ll hear what sounds like a clap of thunder. That’s a freighter warping in. Freighters are massive ships you can use to haul loot. If you don’t have a freighter of your own it can be hard to figure out how to get one, or what to do with one when you have it. Here are some tips.


Whether you played No Man's Sky two days ago or haven't played since launch, returning to the game since the Next update is going to involve some adjusting. If you're wondering how to make Warp Cells or where to find resources, here's a few tips.
