Despite No Man’s Sky being drowned in controversy since its launch, the developers continue to support the game to at least satisfy the fans that have stuck with them from the beginning. Those fans will be rewarded this week with a new Pathfinder update, which is set to add a new vehicle to the game that will aid home planet exploration. The update will be coming to both the PlayStation 4 and PC versions of the game.
A specific release date for the update was not given, and detailed patch notes will be given when the update itself goes live. For now, though, developer Hello Games did release a statement detailing what they’ve been working on, as well as letting fans know that they are actively listening to their feedback. They said the following:
“This week Hello Games will be releasing the next content update for No Man’s Sky. We’re calling it the Path Finder Update; it introduces a new vehicle that will aid home planet exploration, building on the Foundation Update to hint at a path ahead for the future.
Detailed patch notes will be released when the update goes live.
Shortly after we launched the Foundation Update, we released a number of patches to address issues reported by players before beginning work on the Path Finder update. We were surprised and excited by the response to Foundation, and we have been listening carefully to community feedback since then.
To those of you who have spent time sharing feedback, whether positive or negative, we are listening.
This is the next step in our journey. It shows the path forward. We hope you’ll join us.”
No Man’s Sky is available for PlayStation 4 and PC. Despite the large negative response that the game received when it launched, it managed to win the Innovation award at the recent Game Developer’s Choice Awards.
