Foundation Update Incoming

Hello Games | November 25, 2016


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 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

    Bit to little to late. Foundation of a feature that makes no sense in a game like No Mans Sky? The should have focused on adding the stuff promised not adding something that clearly has no place in this game. The whole point of the game is to explore new planets, not staying put and building a base. Granted, i have no clue what this update will bring, but IMO base building should have been one of the last updates, not first.

    They are calling it foundation update because they are still working on the games foundation.

    Seriously though. Nice to see they are still working on it. Give them some time, it might eventually become a real game.
