Update 1.3 finally brings us the game they were originally showing us 2 years ago. Well, it’s a lot closer than it was. They have added SO much to this update, it really does seem like a completely different game.
Click the link below to visit the official No Man’s Sky site and look for yourself at all the game changing stuff added.
Watch this video for a small glimpse at just some of the changes.
The new 1.3 update is supposed to be coming sometime this week. It is supposed to add new content and active portals. It should be interesting for sure.
Hello Games announced the new Pathfinder update for No Man’s Sky.
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.

Sean Murray will make his first public appearance at GDC since the game No Man’s Sky was released.
Hopefully there will be news of a future update for the game.

Merry Christmas everyone! Have a happy new year and here’s hoping 2017 is a great year for No Man’s Sky!
The new update for No Man’s Sky is out now on PC and PS4 called the Foundation Update Ver. 1.1 and it adds a bunch of new features and content to the game.
Explorers can now decide to play with different rule sets, across three game modes:
is the original chilled exploration experience. Normal mode:
allows players to explore the universe without limits, and build a huge base. Creative mode:

Players can build a base to suit their needs for storing resources or creating a farm. You can even hits NPC aliens to run the base for you and much more.
Purchase huge interstellar Freighters at great expense, and then summon them from anywhere in the galaxy.

This is one of my photo’s. I thought it was a great shot of the planet from my ships Cockpit. Thought I would share it with you all.
This was a cool shot of a planet on the horizon. I have many more screenshots to go through, so I hope to post more soon.
This last photo was submitted by Paftronz 89 of a cool looking Cat like creature. They have a video as well. Check it out!
VIDEOThanks for the submission Paftronz 89!
Hello Games tweeted that the new PS4 patch, version 1.06 is coming later this week and should fix 90% of the crash issues in the game. I know my game hasn’t crashed any since the last patch, version 1.05, so that’s definitely a good sign.
We have our first 4K screenshot submission from Vitality.
If you have any 4K pictures you want to show off, feel free to submit them. I increased the file size for submissions to 4mb now, so it shouldn’t be a problem to send 4K now. Sorry if anyone tried and wasn’t able to.
Thanks everyone for all the great submissions. Keep them coming.
If you have any cool videos as well posted online somewhere, send me the link. If I think it’s cool, I’ll feature it here on the front page.
We would love to have screenshots from your game. Send them to us by using the Submit Screenshot at the top right of the page, or click the link below.
