No Man’s Sky Foundation Update Dropping Soon


Hello Games broke their silence a couple days ago to reveal an important update is coming to No Man’s Sky next week. The update is titled “The Foundation” as it will add the foundations of base building. That’s all the information Hello Games gave for the update because of course Hello Games would be vague, but patch notes are promised to be shared soon.

Hello Games also shared some information on what they have been doing since the game launched like patching No Man’s Sky seven times.


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”

It has been a rough time for Hello Games since the release of their highly anticipated game with fans going from hype and rabid to angry and destructive. The studio has been under a lot of pressure that they clearly were not prepared to deal with and their radio silence did not help them. Hopefully the Foundation Update is a step in the right direction and will begin the comeback story for Hello Games and No Man’s Sky.
