Aptarkaba is a galaxy.


Aptarkaba is the 12th galaxy in the No Man's Sky universe.

The Fade and Galaxy Centre are fundamental parts of every galaxy. In Aptarkaba, the centre appears to be Sky Blue.

This galaxy can be reached by:

  • Warp travel - Players start here with a crashed ship after reaching the centre of the Elkupalos galaxy.
  • Pathfinder: this galaxy was accessible only by reaching the centre of the previous eleven galaxies

As of Atlas Rises, this is now the second Ancestral galaxy. It appears to have fewer lush planets, and a higher proportion of Desolate/Forsaken biomes than a regular galaxy. As a result, exotic planets may be more common here.
