No Man’s Sky Origins update coming next week

Hello Games has announced the next major update for No Man’s Sky and it is called Origins. Not too much is known about what Origins will bring, but the name has been chosen as it will be the start of a new phase for No Man’s Sky. The image for No Man’s Sky Origins shows three characters standing in different environments. There are differences in creatures and plant life across the three environments, but what this points to is not clear.


In a statement Hello Games wrote:

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. SYNTHESISBYTEBEATLIVING SHIPEXO MECHCROSSPLAY, 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.

The studio will be releasing more details and the patch notes for No Man’s Sky Origins next week when the update goes live.
