In a memo sent to players who have been participating in activities related to the game and the "Waking Titan" augmented reality game, Murray revealed that the update officially known as "Atlas Rises" is coming this week.

The Waking Titan ARG began with a series of audio cassettes mailed to active No Man's Sky community members in early June, and these included clues that pointed users to a series of websites. "Atlas Rises", as it's called, will be free on PC and PlayStation 4, just as the previous updates have been.

It follows on from the 1.1 Foundation update in November past year and 1.2 Path Finder update in March which added ground vehicles to the game. Despite that, the developers have still supported the game with huge content updates.

Update 1.3 will release this week and will be available for free to all No Man's Sky players. "We have been quiet, but we have been listening intently". The developer explained in email to the game's followers that Atlas Rises "focuses on improving the central story of No Man's Sky" while also adding the ability to quick travel between locations using portals. We'll update this report with more information on the patch as soon as its release notes are published, which Murray says will accompany the patch.

China vows to uphold North Korea sanctions
Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull says North Korea is reckless, provocative, unsafe and a threat to peace. But at the right angle, the experts said the missiles, in theory, could hit the mainland of the United States.

However, until the full patch notes are posted, we won't know all the details. "In the last eight weeks a quarter of a million players from across the globe (174 countries, to be precise!) have come together - united by a shared love of mystery and science fiction - to form the Citizen Science Division", wrote Murray.

"You've travelled great distances both real and virtual, undertaken complex tasks, and explored the depths of simulation theory".

With new storylines and better travel options, the ambitious space exploration game will likely draw in new and old gamers with hopes of getting a larger community involved. Most importantly a cute hamster has a new home. Are you up for an improved story?
