No Man’s Sky patch update and other details
Murray’s tweet, with a photo of the devs behind the project, generated buzz on Twitter.
One Twitter user was quick to criticize the game’s development. First, the user questioned why there were only five people working on the so-called update. He/she then proceeds to criticize that the game is “overhyped, graphically outdated, and content lacking”.
@NoMansSky i see like 5 guys? is that all? Why is this game so overhyped, it's graphically outdated it's content lacking. It's all a facade?

Despite the user’s negative remarks, Murray managed to calmly reply with a ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. On the other hand, other gamers had Murray’s back. Most of the users emphasized that a massive unlimited universe should be enough content. More so, one user also judged the critic by saying that if he/she bases a good game to graphics alone, then he/she isn’t a true gamer.
Finally, the critic garnered much backlash instead by having other users instruct him to “do more research”.
No further details regarding the patch update are known at this point. Other speculate that the new content could be new planets to explore, but no way to confirm that yet. Check back for details on the progress of this story. Fans wouldn’t have to wait long as the game finally launches next week.
Stay tuned for more news on the No Man’s Sky patch update.
