No Man’s Sky: The Foundation Update

The silence that has lasted months (excluding when their Twitter was hacked)  on the Hello Games and Sean Murray Twitter accounts has finally been broken to announce a new update for No Man’s Sky. On November 25th, the Hello Games account announced the “Foundation Update.”   Confirming that it would be “coming soon,”  however giving no concrete release date.

The name of the update itself, Hello Games explained, is a good indicator of what is to come, “…we have added the foundations of base building, and also because this is putting in place a foundation for things to come.” It doesn’t say much besides confirming that they would indeed be delivering on their promise to add base building, which was already teased back on August 8th in this post.  The most current announcement answered the question of whether Hello Games was still up and running and working on NMS.

On November 27th, a video was uploaded to the Hello Games Youtube channel titled: “No Man’s Sky: Foundation Update (version 1.1),” and at the same time the update was released for download on Steam. The video detailed many of the new things to come with the Foundation Update.  New additions include small things such as automated mining harvesters that will mine resources for you, to larger items like base building and buying your own freighter that you can teleport to.  The video provides a lot of detail, but if you’d like to read more about the update, here is a link to their page detailing all of the new additions.

Although this is a start, only time will tell if No Man’s Sky can redeem itself.
