No Man's Sky's Foundation Update is now live


No Man's Sky's Foundation Update is now live, adding some base building elements, farming and additional graphical options to the game.  

This new update also adds new game modes, with a creative mode which allows players to explore the universe without limits and Survival mode which features permadeath and a more challenging game experience. 

With base building players will be able to claim an uninhabited planet as their own, allowing players to create an outpost, though at this time it is unknown if there are restrictions to either the size and area that player bases can occupy. Inside your base players can recruit aliens to research new technologies, whether it be for farming, or for creating new weapons. These aliens can be hired at space stations. 

Those who are far away from their player base can use special Terminus Teleporters at space stations to teleport to their base at will. 



This new update will also add freighters to the game, allowing players to stockpile resources for trade as well as give them the ability to create their own custom decorated "mobile base" inside. Freighters can be used to earn money from trading and opens a whole new way to play the game, though it is worth noting that this functionality was promised for the launch version of the game. 

The Foundation Update confirms to many what was long suspected, that No Man's Sky is an early access game that was clothed as a finished AAA game, with this update finally adding many features that were promised in the original game. To some No Man's Sky may now be worth the game's asking price, though the game is still far from what was originally promised to consumers.
