Hello Game’s highly hyped “No Man’s Sky” disappointed fans on release day but… Since release, Hello Games has striven to make amends with a series of content releases. Living up to their promise of continual improvements, Sean Murray himself has confirmed the patch.
Hints about “No Man’s Sky’s” patch 1.3 was first cropped up through an alternate reality game dubbed “Waking Titan”. The ARG title has sent ads in the form of messages, later discovered to have Morse code embedded in them.
Keen players have since deciphered the hidden messages to: Blue, White, Red, Black, Yellow, and Green. The six thinking hats in business. The end of the treasure hunt lead to the unlocking of a PDF document detailing the content update. Though it is still unknown what exactly will be in the future update.
Within the memo is a very interesting note stating: “the input from the Mercury Subroutine”. Will this pave the way for new adventures in No Man’s Sky 1.3? Hints all point towards an August release, putting long time fans into a whirlwind of baited hype.
The document also mentions 180 Access IDs that were distributed including some “artifacts.” No information was yet found about what these artifacts are. It is speculated that the Access IDs are the 180 copies of “No Man’s Sky” given free of charge to “Waking Titan” players. The PDF document was written by a person that goes by a mysterious “S.M.” which is, of course could only be Sean Murray.
The Full Contents of the PDF are as follows:
“We want to extend our gratitude to everyone who has contributed to the Mercury Subroutine so far. We hope you have enjoyed the successful distribution of 180 Access IDs, and we hope you will also appreciate the other interesting artifacts we have in store for you going forward.
“We intend to keep the process alive until the completion of Project Waking Titan in August. It is important to mention that we are very excited by the coming Phases 2 and 3. Input from the Mercury Subroutine will pave the way toward new experiences in version 1.3 of a familiar universe. We look forward to the successful conclusion of this ground-breaking experiment.
