New Eridu is one of the many procedurally-generated planets in the universe of No Man's Sky before the change of the generation seed.


New Eridu was one of the first planets revealed, as it was shown in the No Man's Sky E3 Gameplay Trailer; its name was then shown and expanded upon in the Unveiling the Gameplay of No Man's Sky video. New Eridu features an expansive ocean filled with many lifeforms, both friendly and aggressive, as well as sandy islands populated with deep red grasses and trees.

A mysterious circular building or wreck sits on one of the islands. This type of information will be gathered and studied via the discipline of Xenoarcheology.
