Well, they’re trying, and they’re communicating. Good on them.
Hello Games apparently intends to make good on its commitment to keep working on No Man’s Sky, augmenting it with updates. They’ve announced a new update for the game, that they are calling the Path Finder update, which introduces a new vehicle to the game.
“This week Hello Games will be releasing the next content update for No Man’s Sky,” Hello Games said in its announcement. “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.”
Whether or not players are still interested in giving the game a chance at this point remains to be seen- but it is good on Hello Games to at least attempt to be transparent after their earlier, unacceptable silence.
