No Man's Sky has had a pretty incredible turnaround over the last five years. Constantly pushing out new updates, there are so many places the future of the game could go. Luckily, a brand new update just launched. Here's what we know about it.

No Man's Sky Outlaws Announced

Today, a brand new No Man's Sky update named Outlaws came out. In it, you can become a pirate, teaming up with your friends and plundering the world. You can watch the brand new trailer for yourself right here.

It takes the player through a handful of planets, showing off some of the new things you can expect to see. This is likely just the start of where the game is planning on going.

As this is coming off the back of years of updates, it should only get bigger with time. Hello Games have proven over the last half a decade that they are willing to put in the work to make the best game they possibly can. Slowly and surely, they are getting there.
