Ever since No Man's Sky launched on Xbox One, gamers have been asking for the ability to create custom characters. Beforehand, only the suit you were wearing could be modified. Luckily, that's about to change with the latest patch in a big way.
With today's 5 GB update, you can change your body type. Factors such a build and height can be tweaked. This means that you can truly create a personal character. It can either be based on how you look in real life, or how you imagine your explorer would look in the distant future.
It's great to see that this feature made its way into the game because it enhances immersion. Being able to create a truly personalized character adds to the feeling that you're in the game. For example, many gamers prefer if the hero looks like them. The updated character customization lets you do exact that.
No Man's Sky 1.60 update also brings with it other changes like new buildable items, emotes, and terrain tessellation on Xbox One X. Terrain tessellation adds to the detail of the surroundings. Be sure to check out the complete patch notes if you want to know more.
No Man's Sky was previously a PlayStation 4 console exclusive for many years. A few months ago, developer Hello Games surprised everyone by announcing that the game was coming to Xbox One over the summer.
