To be fair to Hello Games, the last update to No Man's Sky was a major one, adding base building and a bit more purpose to the deep space adventure. And now the small Guildford-based studio has announced a second major patch, named the 'Path Finder' update. According to the studio, this will add a vehicle which you'll be able to use for ground-based exploration – but sadly it sounds like use of it will be limited to your home planet.
There's no word on when the patch will actually drop, but apparently it's coming soon. At this rate, the game may actually be worth playing in… Oh, a couple of years.
