With an endless universe comes endless issues. No Man’s Sky released early last month and received some patches on both PlayStation 4 and PC within days. Since then, developer Hello Games has been radio silent, presumably continuing to work on fixes for the highly anticipated game – director Sean Murray hasn’t tweeted in a full month.
While Hello Games is continuing to work on fixes, confirmation that a content update for the game is, at the very least, in the planning stages, comes from the game’s composer, Paul Weir.
A Twitter user named PeacefulGamer asked Weir if the most recent 1.09 update included new music. Here’s what Weir had to say:
@PeacefulGamer Nope, no audio changes yet. There will be for our first content update.

There’s no word on when we can expect to see this content update, or what it might include. While many players have dropped off the game since its release, it sold quite well initially. A substantial update that brings the game closer to the many promises Murray made over the last two years could, if advertised properly and accurately – Sony, are you listening? – it could bring many disappointed players back for a second chance.
And regardless of how I might feel about the game, the music was actually great. Knowing there’s new music coming is encouragement to jump back in.
