No Man’s Sky is going to have The Foundation Update soon

November 26, 2016 by Alex Novichenko

It was a long time since the last update from Hello Games, creators of No Man’s Sky. But they was not just sitting and mourning bad release. Developers worked hard toward new patch, called “The Foundation Update”. It will be the foundation for base building and also first steps toward new gameplay mechanics.

You can read an official message from Hello Games below.

 

Foundation Update Incoming

 

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.

 

Thank you, Hello Games
