No Man's Sky Companions Update

The No Man's Sky Website announces the launch of a new free Companions update for Hello Games' space exploration game. Sean Murray explains: "Every planet you land on in No Man’s Sky is full of varied creatures, but as wild animals players often didn’t get to spend much time up close with them. Our creatures are weird, vibrant and surprising, and we wanted to give them a starring role in this update. With the COMPANIONS update, players can now tame, breed, train and even speak to the creatures they encounter." All the details are in the update 3.2 patch notes, and a look at the new feature can be seen in the Companions Trailer. Here's more:
Travellers are now able to adopt the creatures they encounter and form close bonds with them. They will travel side-by-side with you as you adventure through the universe both as a friend and as a valuable aide on your voyage. Train them to scan for resources, mark out hazards, provide light, hunt dangerous fauna, find settlements, excavate buried treasure or even mine for materials with their own shoulder-mounted mining lasers.

If properly nurtured, your companion will lay eggs which can be collected and incubated. Watch in wonder as the new-borns hatch and grow from babies to full-grown adults! Or use the Space Anomaly’s new Egg Sequencer to genetically modify your companion’s eggs into ever-wilder species.

Eh, just more fluff that doesn't address the game's main issues, primarily that there's no point in exploring, in a game that's about...exploring. I put 100+ hours into this, and it became apparent that you see 99% of what the game has to offer in the first system.

Hard to believe they are still adding to this game for free. Almost every other dev/publisher would have released this update as paid DLC.

Creature designer sounds cool.

Will the creature sell all my stuff for me, a la Torchlight 2?
If Russia stops fighting, the war ends. If Ukraine stops fighting, Ukraine ends. Slava Ukraini!
