No Man’s Sky Fan Has Great Theory For The Upcoming Update

There’s another No Man’s Sky update on the way. We know this because the official No Man’s Sky Twitter account recently posted a single emoji, Hello Game’s telltale sign of an upcoming update. Every new patch has always been preceded by an enigmatic emoji that is at least tangentially related to the update’s contents, and we have no reason to expect this one to be any different.

This time, Hello Games has posted a flexing arm emoji. Speculation has already led to perhaps a new skill tree for Travelers or more combat upgrades. There’s also one who noted that the recent Switch edition of No Man’s Sky might get its physical release date since a similar emoji was used to announce it initially. Or it might just be a massive update, as hinted previously.

Reddit user "8.9.16" (a number representing the initial release date of No Man's Sky) has a theory that seems more compelling than the rest. "On July 20th, 1969, Neil Armstrong became the first human to set foot on the moon," they wrote. "Make what you will of this interesting fact!"

No Man’s Sky already has moons, but they’re basically the same as smaller planets orbiting larger ones. Both can be landed upon by Travelers, and both might even have similar atmospheres and fauna. This update might provide some additional consistency for No Man’s Sky’s moons, making some lifeless rocks if they’re too small to support an atmosphere.

Or we might have a moon-themed expedition. Expedition 3, "Cartographers," largely took place on a single planet. Perhaps this next expedition will take place on either a single or multiple moons?

We probably won’t have to wait too long to find out. These emoji usually get posted just days before the update drops, so we’ll likely find out for sure later this week.

If you're a veteran No Man's Sky player looking to increase your space traveling immersion, a group of players has created a fake cryptocurrency to generate a secondary economy outside the game. The currency has no real-world value, but some players will accept it as payment for completing tasks, like building a base or tracking down a particularly troublesome bounty. You can read all about it in our previous coverage here.
