Gamers were disappointed with the initial release of Hello Games’ No Man’s Sky but the developer intends to turn it around with new content and features. Recently, Hello Games released the foundation update that brought a slew of new content and now the studio is looking to staff up.
Hello Games has announced that they are looking for an experienced QA Tester, an experienced programmer, graduate programmer, and writer. The writer position is the most interesting one which indicates that a story mode for No Man’s Sky might be coming in the future.
However, Hello Games did not fully specify what role the writer will be playing in the development.
Recently, Hello Games released update 1.12 for No Man’s Sky which fixes some critical bugs.
- Fixed an issue which, in some rare cases, prevented NPCs from giving you mission critical dialogue.
- Fixed a bug which could cause core items to be transferred from exo-suit inventory to starship inventory.
- Fixed a number of rare crashes (if you continue to experience crashes, please send a crash report and include your crash dumps).
- Fixed an issue where underwater buildings could spawn without doors which in rare cases would mean the NPC missions could not be completed. (Note: If you are still being pointed to missing facilities during the NPC questlines, you can either claim a new base and re-build the NPC terminal, or if you have a Freighter, remove the NPC terminal from your base and rebuild it in the Freighter. The NPC should then give you new coordinates. We are still working on a more permanent fix for this issue).
Also, Advertising Standards Authority has cleared Hello Games from the allegation of false advertisement and has ruled that No Man’s Sky’s controversial Steam page did not mislead consumers. The ASA’s ruling is based on the assertion that No Man’s Sky is a procedurally generated game and no single gameplay experience is similar to another.
No Man’s Sky is a first-person space exploration game developed by Hello Games for PC and PlayStation 4.
