This past summer, Hello Games released the extremely ambitious Beyond update for No Man’s Sky. An update that added features like VR, creature riding, multiplayer missions, and community hubs to a game that was already the largest game in history (literally, with 18 trillion planets). The free update was among the most anticipated game updates of the year, for both Virtual Reality and traditional gamers on all platforms.
This was apparently just the beginning, as Hello Games has since released a whopping 28 patches, each one bringing more improvements and social features. One of those new features in today’s update 2.24 really caught our attention and that would be the “ByteBeat” device. Found as a blueprint on the Anomaly, the ByteBeat device is a functional DAW (digital audio workstation) that you can use to create music at your base.
As if that weren’t interesting enough, players will also be able to sync their newly created musical masterpieces to lights in their base via the ByteBeat Switch. This opens opportunities for things like live musical performances that can be attended both in VR and on flat screens.
On top of this, update 2.24 also brings fixes across all platforms, including the bug that caused players to fall endlessly from their freighters on PS4. The full patch notes are available on the game’s website, which you can see by clicking here.
