No Man's Sky website
has details on a new patch that's coming this
week to the space exploration game. The patch is called Atlas Rises, and they
say it will improve the game's central story. Here's word from Hello Games' Sean
Itís been a year since No Manís Sky first released, and itís been
an exciting, intense and emotional year for us at Hello Games. We have been
quiet, but we have been listening intently.
Weíve spent that year working hard on free updates for this game our team cares
about so much.
Update 1.3 will release this week and will be available for free to all No Manís
Sky players. Weíre calling it Atlas Rises. It focuses on improving the central
story of No Manís Sky and adds the ability to quick travel between locations
using portals. Patch notes will be made available shortly before the update goes
What we do is much more important than what we say, but since launch we have
sometimes focused too much on that.
We wanted to reach out and celebrate the devoted community that means so much to
us. We launched Waking Titan to try to do that.
When we posted those cassettes we didnít know what to expect. In the last eight
weeks a quarter of a million players from across the globe (174 countries, to be
precise!) have come together Ė united by a shared love of mystery and science
fiction Ė to form the Citizen Science
Division. Youíve travelled great distances both
complex tasks, and explored the depths of
simulation theory. New friendships have been forged, and a tight-knit
community has been created. Most importantly a cute hamster has a new home.
Youíve become part of the No Manís Sky origin story.
Itís been an honour to watch, but this is just the beginning. Whether youíve
followed Waking Titan or not, we welcome anyone to sign up to the
Citizen Science Division, and to join us
on the official CSD forums.
Our journey continues.
Thank you for this year. We hope you enjoy what comes next.
