No Man’s Sky New Path Finder Update Announced; Adds a New Vehicle This Week

on March 7, 2017 12:51 PM

Today, developer Hello Games announced a new update, titled Path Finder, for its action-adventure survival game: No Man’s Sky. 

The update is due to release sometime later this week, and will most notably add a new vehicle that “will aid home planet exploration.” Further details on the update were not divulged.

Below, you can read the whole update post from Hello Games for yourself:

“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.”

It is possible the vehicle being added is the ground vehicle that leaked out back in November of last year, however, until this is officially announced it’s best to take this piece of speculation with a grain of salt, no matter how likely it seems.

No Man’s Sky is currently available for PS4 and PC, where it launched back in August of 2016. Recently, the title won the Innovation award at the Game Developers Choice Awards.
