The foundation update released with many new features, improvements, and changes to the base game. It is being received well by the community and Hello Games has promised to build more features into the game.

However, things seem to be looking up for No Man’s Sky for the time being. The big question is, will Hello Games be able to regain its lost user base? So far the feedback is positive and fans have come back to see what’s new and is it worth it?


The progress and healing process will be slow but No Man’s Sky has immense potential, enough to rise back up. No Man’s Sky all time peak is 212,321, a number that is overwhelmingly positive. Hello Games will be looking to recapture its audience by creating a better game with more features based on community feedback.
