Sean got caught in his own ambition. We don’t think he’s a bad person. Countless developers put out a vision for a game and don’t achieve it. Todd Howard said there would be incredible AI for Oblivion, they tried their best to achieve it but had to scale it back in the end. But can Hello Games finally nail it in the next No Man’s Sky update?

What does Hello Games have in store for us in the next No Man’s Sky update?

A proper completion/new game+ would give something special, not just crashing the ship on some new planet to start over again. Even a special gear or story add-on would have made the replay much better. Not even one piece of completion-exclusive text progressing the knowledge/story is given – just a crash onto a new planet to do more grind.

Here’s a thought Sean Murray. For such a huge game and huge idea how about getting a somewhat larger team? 15 people are not enough for a game almost literally infinite in scope and size. A bit of a footnote – HG employee Gareth Bourn quit the company around the time the “hack” took place. He is now working on Star Citizen / Squadron 42, for Cloud Imperium / Chris Roberts. Coincidence? We will probably never know.

But a major feature update for No Man’s Sky is the introduction of multiplayer. This is the feature which could still save the game and Sean Murray’s reputation. What are your thoughts? Let us know in the comments.

No Man’s Sky is an action-adventure survival video game developed and published by the indie studio Hello Games for PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Windows. The game was released worldwide in August 2016. Stay tuned to MobiPicker for more news and updates on Hello Games and all their future endeavors as well as other stuff.

  • Custom characters, Custom ships, better resource management system, 3rd person view, VR. Add those and this game would be even better. I’m actually ok without multi player.

  • I’m perfectly happy with the game as it is. For me there was none of the vast disappointment that others seem to see in it. Then again, it seems like I was one of the few people who realised that the game was merely going to be a game, and not the Second Coming of Christ combined with a time machine that worked by giving the user multiple orgasms.

    So update 1.10, sure, that sounds good. But do I need it? Not really.

    “This is the feature which could still save the game and Sean Murray’s reputation.”
    No, no it’s not. Hello Games does not have the manpower nor the time to turn NMS into what everyone wanted it to be. That’s what would save Sean’s reputation. Trickling little updates like this over months will hardly garner any attention and will not be enough to get people to seriously start playing again. If anything, it will amplify thoughts of how unfinished NMS is.

    So instead of doing repeated boring grinds by your self, you can now do repeatedly boring grinds with your friends. Hmmm – that’s pretty tempting.
