Per the Photonix Core Wiki says , it says

... it is one of several technologies available only for pre-ordered players.

The Photonix Core was not mentioned as a bonus during the pre-order state. With that said, what are all of the pre-order specific technologies in No Man's Sky?

  • I'm confused about that wiki statement. I did not pre-order NMS, just ordered it on Amazon after release. And I certainly do have the Photonix Core on my ship. Not sure I installed it myself or got it when I found that ship.

  • Oh yeah, right, this is NOT a limited edition, just the standard PS4 version.

From here, the exclusive items appear to be:

GameStop (physical, PS4):

upgraded Alpha Vector ship

Steam / GOG / Humble Store (digital, PC):

Horizon Omega ship equipped with an upgraded hyperdrive and increased firepower.

Limited edition PS4 version:

Photonix Core (ship boost)

  • Are those ships unique in any way or are these just common ships with common configuration, just that you got em for free for pre-ordering?

  • @udondan I'm not entirely sure, I haven't seen any posts from people saying they found them on their own. At the very least, they're hard to come by.
