No Man's Sky has received a brand new update. The Interceptor update, otherwise known as Update 4.2, introduces corrupted Sentinel worlds for you to explore, as well as new robotic guardians to take down, new gear to find and salvage, and much more.

Last month, the Fractal update introduced PlayStation VR2 support to No Man's Sky, as well as a host of other content and improvements. Now, another update has arrived for Hello Games' space sandbox game, and the first major new addition is the ability to add a Sentinel Interceptor ship to your fleet, giving you another way to explore the galaxy.

As well as the new ship type, you can also now land on corrupted Sentinel worlds, where you'll see giant purple crystals protruding from the ground. The robot guardians on these worlds have also been corrupted, and it's up to you (and your friends, if you choose to enlist them) to take them down. You can check out the trailer for the No Man's Sky Interceptor update right here.

The VR versions of No Man's Sky have also received some love in this new update. You can now grab and move the projector interface menus in VR, letting you put them wherever you like on your screen. That dream of swiping holograms around like Tony Stark seems tantalizingly close now, doesn't it?

There's plenty more to enjoy and look forward to in the No Man's Sky Interceptor update, including a full Sentinel ship cockpit view, new gear to find and harvest on corrupted worlds, and improved AI for Sentinel quadrupeds, letting them move faster and more nimbly. Make sure to take a look at the full Interceptor patch notes to see the extensive list of everything that's been added.

No Man's Sky is available right now on PC, PlayStation consoles, Xbox platforms, and Nintendo Switch.
