No Man’s Sky | What’s at the center of the galaxy?

Reaching the center of the galaxy in No Man’s Sky is a main objective for most players. It is the crowning achievement of a player who has taken advantage of every available resource to travel a significant distance. What awaits is something very special.

How to get to the center of the galaxy in No Man’s Sky

When you begin the game you will be spawned at a random location within a galaxy among billions of stars. To arrive at the galactic center, you will need to upgrade your ship and tools using various resources found on planets around the galaxy. As your assets become more powerful, long distance travel becomes possible, which is a critical element of traveling thousands of light years.

What is at the center of the galaxy in No Man’s Sky?

Upon arrival at the center of the galaxy, you will learn about the mysterious, ancient species that has left its tracks all over planets around the galaxy. This species bears great significance to the world of No Man’s Sky.

Equally as important, you will be provided an option to teleport to another galaxy. Yes, there are multiple galaxies within the universe of No Man’s Sky, each with billions of stars. So, you could say that the proper terminology would be arriving at the center of a galaxy, since there are many.

It’s no wonder the developer has stated numerous times that it is nearly impossible to meet up with your friends. There are many, many billions of stars, each with several planets orbiting it. Pin-pointing any precise location to meet other players at is effectively impossible. At least it used to be before the massive updates that added true multiplayer to the game.

When you travel to another galaxy, it functions as a New Game+. You will be able to retain all of your upgrades and assets along the journey. Each time that you arrive at the center of a galaxy you will be provided this travel option, so you can enter multiple dimensions of New Game+.
