You asked for it and Hello Games delivered. Here's what you need to know to sit down in No Man's Sky Beyond.


No Man's Sky Beyond is here, ushering in a ton of great changes and additions to the three-year-old game. Despite all the big changes like a new social area, ship scale updates, etc. many fans are sure to be excited by all the new additions.

How to sit in No Man's Sky

All those pesky chairs can no longer torment you when you visit spaceports or The Space Anomaly. Instead, you can now promptly approach those chairs and sit right down on them. To do this, all you need to do is find an empty chair somewhere in the world -- look at spaceports, The Space Anomaly, and even in bases found throughout the universe.

NPCs have become much more responsive to player actions and gestures in No Man's Sky Beyond.

Once you've found yourself a nice, comfy looking chair, approach it and look for the button prompt to appear on your screen. As you can see in the gif we've included from the official patch notes, this prompt is pretty easy to see. When you see the prompt, go ahead and hold down the button it tells you to. This will cause your character to hop up and sit down on the chair.
