by Nicholas Barth

There is no denying the title of No Man’s Sky had a very rough start to its life following its official release. However, a plethora of incredible updates has transformed the less than stellar game into a worthwhile experience for gamers to enjoy. The latest of the major updates for No Man’s Sky was the Beyond update. This Beyond update has dramatically transformed the space-themed title in a variety of ways. One of the most significant changes is the addition of resource hotspots on planets which will reward players with some beneficial resources if they can find them. Players can find these hidden resource hotspots in No Man’s Sky Beyond with the survey device. If you are interested in learning about how you can get your hands on this particular survey device, be sure to check out everything you need to know below.
