Anticipation for No Man s Sky has risen to a fever pitch.

Although copies of the game started escaping into the wild last week, review codes were delayed while developer Hello Games finalized the massive day one patch, ensuring that reviewers would be assessing the same experience that fans will soon have.

Given the scope of the changes and additions outlined by director Sean Murray in the update notes, we can understand why.

The post doesn t go into any further detail about what they are other than to say that early choices have significant impact on what you see later in the game, and the overall experience.

The notes also allude to rewrites on the Atlas path by Deus Ex scribe James Swallow — early mission text has been rewritten to allow for multiple endings.

In addition to contributing to the overall objective of reaching the galactic center, these paths should help provide more structure and narrative personalization to the ambitiously open-ended experience.
