‘No Man’s Sky’ Latest News & Update: Hello Games Continues Improvement Drive, Announces New “Path Finder” DLC
Hello Games will be offering yet another update, a vehicle that should help “No Man’s Sky” players get around the planet easier. The said patch is called the “Path Finder” update, the second one since the “Foundation” update which came out back in November 2016.
Breadcrumbs of a potential vehicle update were already up in the air thanks to some nosey Reddit users. They stumbled across some files which contained 3D models, icons, and textures plus a folder that was named “buggy”. It turns out that right after the “Foundation” update for “No Man’s Sky”, game developers immediately buckled down to work on the “Path Finder” add-on according to Hello Games.
To aid in the development of the “Path Finder” update, Hello Games placed into consideration the feedback of gamers. Much of these were the positive and negative response to the previous update, something that will hopefully benefit “No Man’s Sky” players in the end.
The current efforts of Hello Games have been little steps as they try to win back “No Man’s Sky” gamers who turned their backs when it launched last year, Engadget reported. It wasn’t exactly a smooth debut for the space exploration game, criticized for recurring game scenarios aside from carrying game hiccups. Game performance was not optimized and “No Man’s Sky” eventually failed to live up to the hype.
Right now, Hello Games is following a more cautious approach to updates. “No Man’s Sky” continues to be up there though the attention it had last year has dramatically diminished. The new vehicle should be another point for Hello Games, something that will reportedly be distributed later this week, Games Radar reported. While adding a vehicle should entice exploration, even more, it remains to be seen if no further bugs and issues spoil the incremental rise of the ambitious space exploration game.
