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.
