No Man’s Sky Foundation Update Incoming

/ Nov 25th, 2016 No Comments

No Man's Sky

Hello Games has broken its long silence on No Man’s Sky by announcing a new update will be available for the game next week.

The update is being called the Foundation Update because it is introducing the foundations of base building to the game. Hello Games also says the update is “putting in place a foundation for things to come.” Patch notes and a release date are forthcoming. Since the last update to No Man’s Sky on Sept. 24, the team has been working on the Foundation Update, which it also claims won’t be the biggest update but a transition into something bigger.

Can the Foundation Update bring players back to No Man’s Sky?


No Man’s Sky and Hello Games faced a wide range of positive and negative criticism for the game’s lofty ambitions. While praise was given for the scope of being able to seamlessly travel from planet to planet, many players and critics found issue with the repetitive nature of the overall experience.

“The discussion around No Man’s Sky since release has been intense and dramatic,” Hello Games said addressing the feedback on the game. “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.”

No Man’s Sky was released on Aug. 9 for PS4 and soon after on PC.

Quick Take

Despite its shortcomings, No Man’s Sky remains to be a game that has a lot of potential. Years of hype and bloated PR didn’t put gamers’ expectations in check but it’s hard to deny how impressive the tech was that Hello Games put into the game. Base building was a feature many players wanted and it looks like Hello Games is listening. If No Man’s Sky is treated like a platform for updates and innovation, the game could rise from the ashes and capture imaginations again.
