'No Man's Sky' news, updates: Hello Games breaks silence by announcing future patch

(No Man's Sky)"No Man's Sky" is now available on the PlayStation 4 console and Windows PC platform

The long wait is finally over. Hello Games — developer of the controversial open-universe title "No Man's Sky" — broke months of silence to announce a new update for the game. The latest update will introduce new amazing features for the title.

According to the latest blog post made by Hello Games, the upcoming patch for "No Man's Sky" is going to be called "The Foundation Update." It will set the "foundation for things to come," and one of the most highlighted features in the update is the base building capabilities it will add for the open-universe title.

"In the nine weeks since then our small team has been hard at work on development, testing and certification for the Foundation Update. It won't be our biggest update, but it is the start of something," continued the developer's blog post.

"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," added Hello Games.

This has been quite an update, considering that the last time fans heard something from Hello Games, the developer's social media accounts were hacked, according to previous reports. The hacker — who is still unnamed — managed to get his/her hands on the official Twitter account of Hello Games. The hacker then tweeted: "No Man's Sky was a mistake."

Aside from the base building, "The Foundation Update" for "No Man's Sky" will also introduce farming for planets and building up camps. Fans can check out the full details for the upcoming update on the game's official website.

There is no official word yet from the company on when the update for "No Man's Sky" will roll out. More news about "The Foundation Update" should emerge in the coming weeks or months.
