No Man's Sky has been released nearly a year ago (August 12th, 2016) and its latest patch was released back in March. Despite that, the developers have still supported the game with huge content updates.
The upcoming update should be welcome news to gamers who have not quit on "No Man's Sky". The new story mode will be called "Atlas Rises".
This update focuses on the interplanetary travel and story aspects which had received the most criticism following the release of NMS. The update will also add the ability to quick-travel between planetary portals, a feature that's been rumored for quite some time. That continues with update 1.3, otherwise known as Atlas Rises, which is another free expansion.
No Man's Sky is sci-fi themed game that created a stir when it debuted a year ago and it is still a poorly rated game today.
Murray also shared that even though he and the other developers have remained quiet, they have still been listening to what the players have been saying.
"What we do is so much more than what we say, but since launch we have sometimes focused too much on that", Murray wrote in the e-mail. Patch notes will be made available shortly before the update goes live. On the topic of the ARG itself, that was studio Hello Games' attempt to "reach out and celebrate the devoted community that means so much to us". "Whether you've followed Waking Titan or not, we welcome anyone to sign up to the Citizen Science Division, and to join us on the official CSD forums".
However, until the full patch notes are posted, we won't know all the details.
"You've travelled great distances both real and virtual, undertaken complex tasks, and explored the depths of simulation theory".
