Future Update Speculation

There was also a video game called “Omega Race” from Midway. A description I found is:

Player controls an “Omegan Space Fighter”, and attempts to destroy waves of enemy droid ships. Battle takes place on a rectangular “track”. Player’s ship bounces off invisible walls of track.

And a new game “Omega 6” coming up that is an intergalactic journey to locate a new home for the human race.

Oooooo … Crossover alien species confirmed. Must post to rumor mill. :joy:

So I am making my official guess. The one omega emoji means the last of the mini ARG and the 3 omega emoji means the last 3 of the mini ARG. We have the Atlas vs Void Mother in this ARG and the last part will bring either war or reconciliation. I am leaning towards the latter and a merging of the 2.

Woo, let’s go Team Reconciliation! I’ll start printing t shirts and badges.

I like to assume Hello Games are on the same page here and also think we’ve seen enough of war in recent months. I want the Good Friday Agreement of conclusions, with none of the mess that led up to it (or the mess brexit is trying to make of it :smiley: )

edit:

not sure when this was posted today (sunday), but sean retweeted the Omega tweet.

Over the years it seems that retweets his posts often. I’ve assumed that he has a bot or app on one of his social media sites that is doing that for him. The retweets seem to come about a day later (but I never timed it).

Omega is the last letter of the Greek alphabet. In Christian symbolism, Alpha and Omega symbolise God / Jesus as the “beginning and the end”.

So… conclusion of the story?

Yup, all signs point to a conclusion of this 4 part arc as advertised. However that hasn’t stopped quite a lot of people online to freak out and declare it as a sign of the last update ever. Twitter is still being Twitter, in case you were wondering xoxo

Another internal update 20 minutes ago. We might get this tomorrow if we’re oMEGA lucky * novelty snare and hi hat fill*

I’m jumping the gun on myself here. We havent even been graced by the Emoji cowboy. How long before an update does he show up again? XD

Edit: Internal pushed to Experimental now. What time do Hello Games clock off at and what is their policy on Crunch? XD

I couldn’t wait for the public expedition to bring me here, so I made myself at home.

Was on a long search for a white grass home for a settlement. Up until last week I had been using the same one since they introduced them.

The dance hall is still under construction, I regret to inform you now

Due to the peculiarities of Irish spelling, “Baile Bainna beag” is pronounced “O’Casey’s Hospitality Lounge” - which is Irish for “A pint of Creme de Menthe, please”.

The weird thing is, this sounds halfways plausible… :rofl:

Ah, I see you speak a bit of the Gael :rofl:

Saw someone making the same old “Lie” complaints in a youtube video and I wanted to bring their attention to the pre-release post sean made about multiplayer being absent, their plan to support the game for free with updates, and their goal to work towards what they were calling internally at the time “No Mans Sky Online”. (the commenter was arguing they’re only supporting the game to save good will and their careers… …)

Havent tracked it down yet (I think it was a press release thing shared on sites more so than a HG blog post) but I did find this I thought it was fun…

(this is in relation to the patch coming day one, posted a week before release and addressing the leaks)

“Next up we’re adding the ability to build bases and own giant space freighters. Temporal AA and my new cloud rendering tech should be coming soon too. It will really change the game again, and enhance it visually.”

Sure his new cloud tech was only what… 2 years away? This might be the last known evidence of sean talking about something long before it sees the light of day. It wasn’t long after this he learned the internet is a god damn elephant with selective memory XD

edit: I found something close to the post I was looking for, but still not the exact one <3 From the horses mouth, seems to be completely forgotten about with all the controversy. (the one I’m looking for may have been something off-site but was similar to this, and mentioned the internal name of “no mans sky online”.

this maybe isn’t the game you imagined from those trailers. If you hoped for things like pvp multiplayer or city building, piloting freighters, or building civilisations… that isn’t what NMS is. Over time it might become some of those things through updates.

For instance, freighters and building bases are coming! Read about updates coming here.

At launch though, it’s an infinite procedural sci-fi-space-survival-sandbox unlike anything you have ever played before. If you decide to play it, you’ll see just how closely it plays to those trailers, and to our original vision. It’s a weird game, it’s a niche game and it’s a very very chill game.

Reddit and NeoGaf actually have really good guides to what the game is and isn’t, gathered from interviews I’ve done.

This game might not be for everyone, I expect it to be super divisive, but I’m sat here watching playtesters right now who weren’t supposed to be in, but just wanted to play and chill out. I can’t wait for you to experience that for yourselves.

But you can see here they’re already talking about updates and post game support, not long before the internet turned on them.

Heres a link to that post, What do you do in No Man’s Sky? - No Man's Sky

and some pics from it of early day NMS.

Thank you! I was looking for these references. Do you have a link to the quoted texts?

People still pushing that old “Sean lied” lie seem to me like trolls just trying to inflict anguish.

That’s the link.

What I did was just to to nomansskydotcom news page, and went to the very last page and worked backwards up to launch. Lots of old goodies in there.

I’ve been making so many biscutis I’m starting to think I was absolutely 100% correct despite my prediction only being in jest.
