No Mens Sky Sandworm discovers fans’ secrets


DaMarcus settles into its newly fabricated, three-story No man’s sky To begin the tedious but necessary work of making dozens of base metals. As he worked, his vision suddenly turned violent. He escapes to the balcony, only to see a giant sandworm crest above his base, staining the twin sun.

“I screamed, as if really shouted,” Diarmacus told Polygon on Discord. “I am playing No man’s sky Since launch, and I always thought that they would not add sandworm. Then they did, and I was like … okay, but I’ll never see. And then I did it! “

DaMarcus jumped into his boycott and tried to hunt down the thing for the next hour, a trip that would make him late for work the next morning. DaMarcus is one of many No man’s sky Fans who have come together to uncover the secrets of Sandworm.

Many players consider themselves lucky to get a chance to study sandworm. After all, it once seemed impossible because of history during the development of the impossible No man’s sky. Sandworms originally appeared on the ground in 2013, but never made its live game. The lack of sandworm, along with other apparently vague promises, was used directly as a piece of evidence in the community’s vengeance after Halloween No man’s sky Launched.

In 2018, studio founder Sean Murray told Waypoint that Sandworm was cut from launch because it “came out, as we went through development,” [the sandworm] Was not very funny. “This early version of the creature will pop out of nowhere, sometimes killing the player and not providing a complete opportunity. Sandworms never show up to Origins in 2020…

But the sandworm that created it No man’s sky Remains shrouded in mystery. Players have completed some preliminary tests: they leave no holes in the field or change terrain in their vacations. They do not harm players. If you scan them, they do not add to your codex. Twitter user AlmightyEnder recorded that some planets are “worm-infested”, and if you scan a worm in flight, it tells you that you are seeing an “immortal worm”.

Ray Reynolds, A No man’s sky Players and fans developed a strategy to cope with even more bugs. “Once you find a planet with insects on it, you can get them into spawn by saving your game with beacons that save the area you want them to see. Leave the planet and reload your savings. Within a minute, after you load back, the ground will burst with shiver and they will come. “

Sandworms seem to be associated with high activity on the world in general; If there are too many buildings, there will be insects. (And no, walking without rhythm does not help.)

This is a good start, but there is an astonishing void of knowledge given the determination of the community. Even the tediously updated No Mens Sky wiki does not have a page on sandworms or immortal bugs. This is a key feature, and it makes for great footage, but no one really knows what else you can do with it.

Can you kill sandworm? If so, do they drop anything? How do you even kill something that big? Can you see them rising and falling from the classroom? Are you Ride They like a big, terrible horse? (No answer seems to be there yet.) Everyone has questions about insects, and no one has the answers.

For now, his primary role is as usual a punctuation mark No man’s sky experience. In between the cultivation rows of carbon crystals and shooting big bugs, a sandworm suddenly comes in front of you and arcs towards the sky from the terrible-terrible.

Some fans are already planning how they can find their own sandworm-infected planet to call home, especially since the Origins update changed many existing worlds. “I’m searching for my worm world,” says Rajat, a fan, whom I talked to via Discord. “I have spent the last few evenings working on trying to solve the worm planet or the endless spawn worm. I am going to build a temple of glorious worm. I’ve been playing for so long and I never thought Crazy Lad would do that and add Dunne style sandworms. All the worms. “
