No Man’s Sky creator Sean Murray says his galaxy-spanning sandbox is not near being completed, regardless of receiving its nineteenth main replace as we speak.
Chatting with IGN, Murray mentioned the staff at Howdy Video games is constantly arising with new options they’d like added to No Man’s Sky, and every new replace evokes an increasing number of concepts.
He mentioned, for “as many updates as we have completed since launch and as many bucket listing gadgets we have checked off, our listing of issues we’re enthusiastic about by no means appears to get any shorter. The staff are at all times arising with new issues that they need to do with the sport: new content material and options and areas for enchancment.
“I am amazed that the vitality ranges are as excessive now as they’ve ever been. We have a tendency to not discuss what’s on that listing publicly however suffice to say we’re not completed but by an extended shot.”
Murray defined its roadmap and growth schedule as just like a portray that by no means fairly appears full:
“I wish to assume that No Man’s Sky is such a big sport that now we have to color in broad brush strokes,” he mentioned, “after which every replace comes alongside and fills in some finer element but in addition paints extra new broad strokes.
“That is actually the case right here. Should you take a look at our patch notes [for the Sentinel Update], you will see an absolute ton of refinements, but in addition enormous new options too.”
That listing of updates that Howdy Video games has deliberate for No Man’s Sky is being labored on alongside a new game from the studio that, in September 2021, Murray said was “very early” in development. The one morsel of knowledge revealed is that it is a “enormous, formidable, sport like No Man’s Sky”, although not a sequel.
This can seemingly be the case for some time, as Murray also said “we’ve learned our lesson” on speaking about their video games too early after No Man’s Sky open (and controversial) pre-release.
The new Sentinel Update completely overhauled the game’s combat by including new weapons, updating outdated ones, and bringing a hoard of recent enemies to make use of them on.
Whereas the replace is on the market on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC as we speak, Nintendo gamers can benefit from the replace alongside the remainder of No Man’s Sky when it comes to Switch this summer.
