To get Antimatter in No Man’s Sky NEXT, you’ll first need to craft an Antimatter Housing. This is a relatively straightforward mission. After you craft your first Hyperdrive, you’ll receive a transmission instructing you to head to a new marker placed on your map. Direct your ship to this marker, then use your scanner to locate the marker and land nearby.

Here, you’ll discover an abandoned building. Go inside the abandoned building and interact with the item found inside to unlock the Antimatter Housing blueprint and some Antimatter. Outside the abandoned building, you’ll also find a cluster of Whispering Eggs which can be farmed for Larval Cores.

These are very valuable in terms of Units, though you’ll want to be careful when shooting them as Whispering Eggs contain dangerous Biological Horrors. With your Antimatter Housing blueprint and starting supply of Antimatter, you’ll want to begin crafting your Antimatter Housing. Antimatter Housing can be crafted using 50 Ferrite Dust and 30 Oxygen.

By crafting this Antimatter Housing, you’ll be able to combine it with Antimatter and create a Warp Cell, giving your ship enough fuel for a warp jump. By making your first warp jump, you’ll be able to find a brand new system to explore in No Man’s Sky NEXT. When your Antimatter runs out, you’ll need to craft more for your Warp Cells.
