No Man's Sky is back this week with another major update

August 08, 2017 1 min read

No Man's Skyis mostly a distant memory for me at this point, but with an ARG brewing and people getting jazzed about uncovering its secrets, the sci-fi exploration game has been back on my mind. We've known about a possible August launch for the next update, and that's indeed the case.

As revealed in a message from Hello Games' Sean Murray, the update will go live this week and it "focuses on improving the central story of No Man's Sky and adds the ability to quick travel between locations using portals." Naturally, all the other juicy bits will be found in the patch notes.

"When we posted those cassettes we didn't know what to expect," Murray said of the alternate reality game. "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."
