No Man’s Sky Launches Massive Omega Update With Free Trial

No Man's Sky Omega Trailer

A new Omega Update officially rolls out for No Man’s Sky today, and a PlayStation blog added that the expedition comes with a free trial.

Even players who don’t own No Man’s Sky can still check out a free trial for the brand-new Omega expedition starting today. The free trial will last through Monday, February 19th.

There may be some newcomers to No Man’s Sky after hearing the Light No Fire announcement at The Game Awards 2023. The free trial presents a good opportunity for these players to determine if they’ll finally invest.

The full Omega Expedition will run for two weeks, including a major overhaul and various new features. There will be new on-planet missions, a new pirate dreadnought, and more.

There are also some quick missions that will “guide you through the fundamentals”, again catering to new players. A new trailer breaks down all of Omega’s key features.

Sean Murray posted a series of mysterious tweets over the last week, each featuring the Omega symbol. Fans successfully speculated that it pointed to today’s major update. Patch notes for the update also appeared earlier today.

However, it may not completely rule out the possibility of further No Man’s Sky updates. Earlier today, Sean Murray posted another tweet that listed out all of the previous updates.

But it left enough room to imply that No Man’s Sky could still get more updates later on. After all, there should still be plenty of time before the team prioritizes Light No Fire altogether.

It’s impressive that No Man’s Sky continues to overhaul and break new ground as needed.

With the Omega Update, travellers will even get to join expeditions with provisions. They can “bring along their favourite starships or custom multi-tools and return to their main save with loot and exciting rewards”.
