No Man’s Sky Announces Base Building and Finally Opens Up About Short Comings

No Man's Sky

In November 25th’s development update from Hello Games, the team discussed what they have been up to as of late for No Man’s Sky. The group has announced that this week they will be releasing what they are calling “The Foundation Update”. In this update, fans will finally get one thing they have been asking for since before they games release, base building.

No Man's Sky

The name “The Foundation Update” was used because this is technically the foundations of base building. The fully fleshed out version of this feature is still to come, but gamers will be able to start doing the basics. Hello Games stated that detailed patch notes will be released to fans soon. In addition to the base building features, “The Foundation Update” is also meant to put a foundation for things to come.

The development team is highly aware of the criticism they have been receiving since the game’s launch. First and foremost, they focused on common or critical bugs and any other problems that came along after the release of the game. After that, the team focused their next 9 weeks developing the “The Foundation Update”.

The discussion around No Man’s Sky since release has been intense and dramatic. We have been quiet, but we are listening and focusing on improving the game that our team loves and feels so passionately about. Positive or negative feedback, you have been heard and that will truly help to make this a better game for everyone.

Despite the shortcomings of the release of the game, perhaps we will see a new dawn on the horizon for what the game can become. Let us know in the comments section below with your thoughts on the latest news from the team at Hello Games. Do you think No Man’s Sky can become the great game we were all hoping it would be?

    Got it on launch day, and I haven’t been disappointed. It was exactly what I expected: a space faring game centered around exploration. I’ve watched in wonder as people trashed it. What were they expecting that I wasn’t? Yes, there were things discussed by Sean Murray that ended up not being a part of the game. There were also things people were upset about that were never meant to be a part of the game–namely multiplayer. As I recall, most of the “promises” that people got so hyped over were not even promised by the developers themselves; rather they were predictions made by gaming articles and extrapolations from year-out previews and interviews. What’s funny to me is that, when the game was delayed by a few months, there were death threats and calls to release the game as is. Upon release, Hello Games received extremely harsh criticism for releasing what many were calling an unfinished game. The amount of whining around this game has been unprecedented. To the ones who endlessly criticize the game, it’s either your kind of game or it isn’t. It happens to be a game I love. My wife thinks it’s boring. However, that just means she doesn’t play it; she doesn’t get on the Internet and get mad at people for liking things she doesn’t like. I just don’t understand the entitled mentality of some people.

    Sorry for the novel.
