How to Acquire Powers

Powers (Space Magic) are acquired by visiting Temples. There are a total of 26 Powers. Each Temple unlocks 1 Power. Players visit the temples as part of the mission Power from Beyond, which is unlocked after Into the Unknown, the 5th Main Mission.

Locate Powers

You can unlock Powers during the Main Mission Into the Unknown. After Powers are unlocked, players will uncover further Temples and Powers through Missions called Power from Beyond which can be obtained while exploring space.

If you are exploring and your scanners pick up a near anomaly, your quest log will automatically update the Mission Power from Beyond and add the location of the anomaly for you to investigate.

When you land on a planet to investigate a scanner anomaly, you will be informed that an anomaly is nearby and the location needs to be identified via triangulation. To triangulate anomalies and locate temples you must:

1. Land your starship and open your Survey mode by pressing [F] on PC or [LB] on Xbox Controller.

2. When looking into the direction of the anomaly / temple, the scanner circle will start to distort.

  • You may need to turn your character slowly for 360° degree until you see the distorted scanner circle.

3. Walk towards the direction in which the scanner shows the distorted scanner circle.

4. Once you get close enough to the anomaly / temple, you will receive a location marker on the map. 5. Get closer to the temple and enter.

  • You might have to wait for a moment for the door to be accessible, as the pillars in front, where the stars are on, have to unlock the door first.

Obtain Powers

Once inside a temple, your character will lose gravity and be pulled towards the middle of the room where an armillary sphere will appear. You will need to activate the armillary sphere to obtain the power inside.

To activate the armillary sphere:

1. Orbs of light will appear throughout the room.

File:Obtain powers1.png

  • Use the lack of gravity to your advantage to hover through the light spheres to collect / disperse them.
  • Note: Light spheres will vanish and reappear at a different location in the room if they are not collected / dispersed in time

2. The armillary sphere will accelerate and move faster with every light sphere collected / dispersed.

3. After collecting / dispersing enough light spheres, the armillary sphere will stop and form a perfect ring.

4. Step into the ring to obtain the temple's power.
