No Man's Sky: How to get to the center of the galaxy and end of the game

 We tell you what you have to do to quickly reach the center of the universe in No Man's Sky. Additionally, we will give you an explanation of what happens once you complete your objective.

The center of the universe or galactic core is the goal of No Man's Sky. Everything we do in the game has the ultimate purpose of reaching the center of the universe and discovering the secret that awaits us there. In this part of our guide, we tell you how to travel as quickly as possible to the center and what secret is hidden there.

How to quickly get to the center of the universe

When traveling through the different systems of No Man's Sky and reaching the center of the universe, the first and most important thing you will have to take into account is the equipment of your ship .

Depending on the hyperturbo upgrades you have installed on your ship, you can choose the closest or farthest galaxies around you as your destination. In total you can install a total of four hyperturbo upgrades on your ship; If you install them all at once you will be able to cross the entire galaxy in just eighteen curvatures (on the other hand, the fewer you have, the more trips you will have to make, potentially reaching more than one hundred).

Best tips to reach the center of the galaxy

If what you are interested in is going directly to the center of the universe, one of the best methods to advance quickly is to use the different black holes distributed throughout the systems. As we already mentioned in the Atlas Interface section, during your adventure you will unlock access to the Space Anomaly and by speaking with the characters Nada and Polo you can receive the location of nearby black holes, thanks to which you will be able to advance a great distance without much effort. .

Be careful, we must keep in mind that if we have the four hyperturbo improvements, it may be more profitable to travel through curvatures and not through black holes. This is because every time we use a hole, some technological improvement on the ship will break down and we will have to repair it. On the other hand, if we travel making curves, we will only have to worry about fuel.

The secret hidden in the galactic core

The secret hidden in the galactic core

First of all we want to warn you that the following text contains SPOILERS about the end of No Man's Sky, specifically what happens when you reach the Galactic Core. If you don't want to spoil the surprise, you shouldn't continue reading.

Once you visit the Atlas Interface ten times and give it the ten Atlas Stones, it offers you the possibility of creating a star. Once the star is created, you must follow the marked path until you reach the Galactic Core, to the closest system indicated by the game.

  • When you reach that system you will be able to travel to the white light that you saw on the horizon from the beginning of the game.
  • Then a cinematic will begin in which you travel through the galaxy until you finally reach the Hilbert Dimension.
  • At the end of the next cinematic you will find yourself again on the surface of a random planet as happened at the beginning of the game, but in this new dimension.
  • In this type of New Game + you will keep all your inventory, the ship's upgrades, the multitool you had, all the plans learned, and the money.
  • The objective of this game is to repeat all the steps to reach the Galactic Core and travel to the next dimension.
We want to clarify that reaching the Galactic Core requires a large number of hours depending on the hyperturbo improvements that our ship has.
