No Man's Sky is an space exploration game, which since it's initial reveal amassed a massive hype from everyone, youtubers, videogame journalists, and general public. The game promised to give us a practically infinite universe to explore, with very complex mechanics and interactions... it was thought to be the game to end all games, and the hype was so strong that the real game never had a chance... It didn't help that the main developer of the game was so excited with his project that he become overconfident and promised way to much, or made statements so vague that the public took them and hype them even more... when the game was finally released the backlash was immense, NMS crashed and burned like no game ever before... Hello Games the company behind the game went completely silent while the hate and mockery reached levels never seen before. However when nobody was expecting it, HG came back to like with a trailer... the trailer for the first free expansion for the game, called 1.1 "Foundation" Update, which added base building, giant freighter ships, new mechanics, and new game modes. After that two more updates where added 1.2 "Pathfinder" adding land vehicles, along with new features and better graphics 1.3 "Atlas Rises"which brings a new story mode, also the bases to multiplayer (which is underwhelming but was promising), portal, and many new features. With this 3 updates the game became closer to the original vision, yet most gamers refused to give to the updated game the benefit of the doubt, however a small but dedicated fanbase remained loyal to NMS for 2 long years defending the game from all the trolls and haters... Now, after 2 years we got new announcements... the game was going to be released for Xbox One, and a new update was going to be released, the most massive update ever, so big that it would be called "No Man's Sky NEXT" https://www.nomanssky.com/2018/03/no-mans-sky-next/ We don't know much about the update, other that it will bring the game even closer to the original concept, but that doesn't stop people from once again overhyping the game. The NEXT update is planned to be released July 24 along with the Xbox version. What do you thing about all this? It's a waste of time to keep updating the game? Did you knew about NMS, did you try the game and hated it? Do you think that NMS and HG deserves another chance?
