Void Egg is a space encounter.


Void Egg is a space encounter in the No Man's Sky universe.


Void eggs appear as an oval mass of tendrils wrapped around a glowing orb of light. The light they emit can be one of several different colors.

They will not appear if you have any parts needed to create a Living Ship.


Void eggs are nonresponsive and unmoving, other than slowly rotating. If destroyed, they will grant the player a living ship upgrade.


They can be randomly found in any star system and have a moderate frequency of appearance.

They do not seem to appear when using Anomaly Detectors.
