One of the most intriguing aspects of No Man’s Sky is its language system. There are three primary alien races you’ll spend time conversing with, and you’ll initially have no knowledge of their dialects. Guess correctly, visit ruins and obelisks, and seek out cultural references, however, and you’ll gradually learn individual words that will stand out from the otherwise indecipherable collection of glyphs onscreen. As you piece together languages, your standing with each race will increase and new options will be opened to you. The process genuinely endears you to each race, and we found ourselves with a particular affinity for the Gek simply because trawling our starting planet yielded a good 20 or so Gek words.
