No Man’s Sky is a name that lived in infamy when it was first launched. The insanely huge promises and hyped-up marketing of the game really bit it hard. Many took to the internet to voice their displeasure, and to attack Sean Murray, the face of the company. Murray had been a principal promoter of the game since it was first announced, making tons of promises about what the game entailed.
The game got lambasted on launch thanks to this approach. The game was riddled with bugs, and many of the promised features just weren’t there. Hello Games has definitely since bounced back from that. As of now, the game is on version 3.0, all content being released for free by the way, and show no sign of slowing. Players can now play across wildly mutated worlds, explore horrifying and spooky deep seas and lost freighters and so much more. In some small ways, Hello Games actually managed to redeem that early failure into a promising game.
The team is already working on a new game on a much smaller scale, but that’s now what we’re talking about today. The latest update, Origins has added even more free content.
The new content centers around exploring long-lost ruins and finding the history of the universe in the game. So there’s a simple question that many players seem to have. It’s because they want to play together, and it would be tons of fun to play this new content with your pals.
