No Man’s Sky update incoming this week. It’s alive!

Just when you thought Hello Games had disappeared into the void of space, they have finally posted their first update in over a month for No Man’s Sky.

For the past nine weeks, the development team has been working on a new update and they have been watching all the drama from and comments from the community quite closely.

This week Hello Games will be releasing an update to No Man’s Sky. We’re calling it The Foundation Update, because we have added the foundations of base building, and also because this is putting in place a foundation for things to come.

Detailed patch notes will follow, and release will be soon.

Coming from five years of intense development, immediately after No Man’s Sky released the team spent six weeks updating the game with 7 patches across both platforms (the last of these was 1.09 on Sept 24th which you can read about them all here These fixed many of the most common or critical bugs and issues post-release.

In the nine weeks since then our small team has been hard at work on development, testing and certification for the Foundation Update. It won’t be our biggest update, but it is the start of something.

The discussion around No Man’s Sky since release has been intense and dramatic. We have been quiet, but we are listening and focusing on improving the game that our team loves and feels so passionately about.

Positive or negative feedback, you have been heard and that will truly help to make this a better game for everyone.

This update will be the first small step in a longer journey. We hope you can join us.

This is good news for anyone who purchased the game because some players were getting a little worried Hello Games had vanished.

No Man’s Sky recently managed to make it into our PC Gaming’s Biggest Launch Blunders of 2016 list.
