The delayed action-adventure survival game “No Man’s Sky” will finally be released on Aug. 9 for the PlayStation 4 and three days later, Aug. 12, for PC, but as early as now the game’s first major update is making headlines. 

The latest development in the hype over the upcoming video game refers to a Twitter post from “No Man’s Sky” creative director and studio founder Sean Murray, as reported by International Business Times

Apparently, Murray took to Twitter on Tuesday to tease fans about the major update of the soon-to-be-released adventure game.

“5am at Hello Games. Wrapping up a month of work on our first update. Lots of new features, balancing and content,” Murray’s tweet reads.

Four days earlier, Murray told the eager fans of the game to hang on and to not spoil the fun by reading rumors and watching leaks of the video game. This way, fans can genuinely enjoy the surprises the indie studio has made for them.

“We’ve spent years filling ‘No Man’s Sky’ with surprises. You’ve spent years waiting. Please don’t spoil it for yourself,” Murray wrote after posting: “Take a break from reading about it, and picking vids apart. You can experience for yourself so soon.”

Murray’s tweet was his response to the viral announcement of a gamer who claimed that he managed to reach the center of the video game’s massive universe within 20 to 30 hours in a video he uploaded on YouTube.

Meanwhile, PC Gamer pointed out that the hysterical fanbase of “No Man’s Sky” should not worry since the leaked footage of the game will not be the full extent of what the game has to offer. Furthermore, since Hello Games is already wrapping up the game’s first major update, gamers can expect the massive universe to receive an expansion soon.

So far, the official release of “No Man’s Sky” promises a plethora of explorations and alien attacks, but since Murray has already teased about new features, balancing and content, it is likely that players will be introduced to distinct missions and otherworldly stuff.

However, it is too early to tell what the “No Man’s Sky” update brings to the table. Murray has not mentioned the release date of the update, but it is possible that PlayStation 4 and PC gamers will receive it months after the game’s official release. 

What is certain for now according to iDigitalTimes is that Hello Games will be working on several updates and patches to keep gamers satisfied post-launch.
