It’s been a year since No Man’s Sky first released, and it’s been an exciting, intense and emotional time for us at Hello Games. We have been quiet, but we have been listening intently.
We’ve spent that year working hard on free updates. Update 1.3 will release this week, is our biggest to date and will be available for free to all No Man’s Sky players.
Read on to learn a bit more about what you can expect to discover in the latest update — a lot has changed in a year!
Here at Hello Games we’re excited to be launching our next free content update for No Man’s Sky. We’re calling it the Path Finder Update. It adds planetary vehicles plus lots more to our game, and shows the path forward for the future.
We were surprised, excited, and overwhelmed by the positive response to our last update (Foundation), and it made us even more passionate about continuing to update this game we love.
This week’s Top Downloads list kicks off with Hello Games’ ambitious exploration opus, No Man’s Sky, which tops PlayStation Store’s PS4 chart. Just behind it is this year’s installment of EA’s seminal sports series, Madden NFL 17. Battlefield hype is high, with BF4 surging to the number 3 spot just ahead of Battlefield 1’s release next month. Read on for the rest of the PS4, PS3 and PS Vita charts, and let us know in the comments what you think will take top honors this month.
“What do you do in No Man’s Sky?” is a question that’s followed Hello Games’ ambitious space opus around ever since it was unveiled back in 2014. Truth is, it’s never been an easy proposition to explain; when there’s an entire galaxy to explore, how do you tell someone where to start?
You might already know that the goal is to make your way to the center of a galaxy full of unique, procedurally-generated planets, but it’s what happens on the way there that’s a mystery. Now, with about five hours game time behind me, it’s becoming clear that there’s a lot to do. As millions of travelers prepare to make their way into this vast, unknown universe, here are a few things that will help get your journey underway…
The crunch of alien snow beneath your boots. The howl of a towering beast in the air. And the pools of color that decorate the space of a nearly infinite universe. These are the experiences of a solitary explorer embarking on the ultimate journey across the stars. Ladies and gentlemen, the wait is almost over: No Man’s Sky launches this week on PS4.
