No Man's Sky is an "open-galaxy" space simulator where you can go anywhere and make a mark for yourself. The title has received a number of updates over the past several months, but today's patch may just be the coolest. Have you ever wanted to make music in No Man's Sky? Well, now you can.

Hopefully this is a bit of a nice festive surprise for folks. We have released a neat update today, adding a full audio creation application to No Man's Sky. We're calling it the ByteBeat Device! We've made a brief trailer to demonstrate the potential of the feature, but as always, we're sure that you the community will take it and run with it in all sorts of unexpected directions.

You can learn more on how to use the ByteBeat Device on the game's website. This should result in a lot of new content on YouTube, that's for sure!
