No Man’s Sky teases ‘the beginning of something new’: New update Origins, launching next week


No Man’s Sky studio Hello Games has a bit of a habit of casually announcing major expansions out of the blue and crashing its own website. Today being what it is, that’s exactly what happened this morning with the announcement of Origins, launching next week, with basically no pomp or fanfare, “the beginning of something new” and “another small step in a longer journey.”

“Hello, Next week Hello Games will be releasing an update to No Man’s Sky,” the studio said. “We’re calling it ORIGINS. Detailed patch notes will follow, along with next week’s release.” OK, so there’s a little bit more than that, coupled with a gorgeous collage of all the game’s updates to now.

“Four years ago we announced FOUNDATION, our first major update for No Man’s Sky, we promised ‘It won’t be our largest update, but it is the start of something.’ Those words were true at the time, and they ring true for Origins. We called it Origins because it is the beginning of something new, as No Man’s Sky continues to grow and evolve. Beyond came out last year, bringing VR and hugely expanded Online play, and since then we have focused on releasing more regular updates. SYNTHESIS, BYTEBEAT, LIVING SHIP, EXO MECH, CROSSPLAY, and DESOLATION have been some of our most popular, surprising and transformative updates – leading No Man’s Sky to have its biggest year to date. We know there is a huge appetite in the community for No Man’s Sky content, and the team has worked our socks off this year to deliver in difficult circumstances. We have been quiet, but we are always listening and focusing on improving the game that our team loves and feels so passionately about.”

So yeah, stop clicking it.

Man, at this point I just wish they release a paid one so I can support them in some way, but I believe the way this game is made makes it difficult for them to support expansion and expansion-less players playing together on the same universe without game-breaking bugs.


Anyone heard what this one may be about?


I recently went back to No Man’s Sky and it was pretty good as far as what I expected when I originally bought the game. Setup a cozy little base. Shopped around and got a freighter I wanted. Found some decent ship looks I liked. Upgraded my freighter with the Desolation updates. Got a living ship I wanted. All around pretty fun.

it’s a great game but I found that all the bugs wear you down pretty quickly.


Its really cool to see this game adding and adding things going forward. It has become such a deep game already
