Hello Games’ No Man’s Sky may have received a lot of hate when it first released, but the studio, Sean Murray included, have been doing their best to improve the game. And to be honest, they are on the right track.
No Man’s Sky upcoming update 1.3, dubbed Atlas Rises, is set to change and enhance the game’s “central story.” Not only that, it will also introduce portals to enable fast travel between locations, a highly-requested feature from the game’s fanbase. Sean Murray posted on the game’s official blog, promising to communicate more often with No Man’s Sky’s fanbase and thanked them for their continuous support.
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 didn’t 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 – united by a shared love of mystery and science fiction – to form the Citizen Science Division. You’ve travelled great distances both real and virtual, undertaken 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.
You’ve become part of the No Man’s Sky origin story.
It’s been an honour to watch, but this is just the beginning. Whether you’ve 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.
No Man’s Sky’s update 1.3 still doesn’t have a set date, but we’ll update you once there is any new information.
The update just went live a couple of hours ago. Stay tuned for more details.
