Hello everyone,

BEYOND was a really nice moment for us, we had a ton of people playing VR for the first time, and two million players in the 7 days after release.

Since then we’ve been releasing frequent community updates, with new weekly missions and rewards, while in the background working on what's next.

We have some really big future plans, but we had a whole stack of small changes and improvements we were working on that we knew players would love right now. Thanks-giving seems like a nice time to release something neat for our biggest fans, and players on the Experimental Branch have a chance to experience these right now.

Announcing The Synthesis Update! Ship salvaging, first person exocraft, multiple weapons, ship upgrading, VR improvements, tri base building parts and nearly 300 tweaks and changes for this game we love so much.

Hello Everyone! There’s been a lot going on since our last development update. The team has been working hard to bring you bug fixes and quality of life improvements, with a huge number of things fixed in the three updates since our last blog post.

You’ve all been hard at work too: producing amazing artwork; building spectacular bases; and unlocking the first community goal of Beyond, a brand new Vy’keen-inspired suit of armour. Even now, you’re making great progress on the second event to unlock the likenesses of Travellers Gemini, Mercury and Ares.



Patch 2.15 releases today on all platforms. It introduces a number of new features to bring the community together and highlight the amazing work you do: a showcase for the best community bases, and brand new weekly missions.
