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.
The last update, Foundation, added a whole slew of new features, like letting you build bases on the planets you discovered. That was a huge addition to the game, fundamentally changing play from what it was at launch. I'm intrigued to see what will be in Path Finder and how it builds on or beside the new features that came in Foundation.
