The NMS Beyond update is live and with it, brand new creature taming and riding! This guide explains How To Tame Creatures In No Man’s Sky Beyond as although it’s a basic system, you need to make certain bait and ensure you interact with creatures correctly if you want to tame them.

Taming creatures has multiple aspects involved. Creatures can be fed and not tamed, fed and tamed or fed and mountable. It all depends on the type of creature and the bait you are using.
