No Man's Sky composer Paul Weir has revealed that the game's first content update is currently in the works and will include new music. In response to a fan's question on Twitter about the 1.09 update released earlier this week, Weir said fans can expect "audio changes" in the first No Man's Sky content update.
British indie developer Hello Games has released a series of updates since the space exploration game's launch in August, addressing the sim's technical issues, bugs and glitches.
While Weir said there weren't any new audio changes included in the update, he did mention that there "will be for our first content update".
He also confirmed that while there is new music in the works, they still "haven't finalised exactly when it will make it into the game", explaining that they will do so as soon as they can. Weir did not mention any other details or changes that players can expect to see in the new content update which should include some new gameplay content besides the new audio.
Prior to the game's release, studio founder and creative director Sean Murray said the development team planned to eventually add the ability to build bases and own giant space freighters. "This universe we've built is a pretty large canvas," Murray wrote in August before the game was released. "We've got a lot of ideas. This is the type of game we want to be."
More recently, Murray said that the team would focus on customer support and address all of the customer requests received so far before moving on to improving and introducing new features to the game's near-infinite universe.
According to the team's last development update published on 2 September, the team has been "inundated with feedback and discussion about No Man's Sky", assuring fans that "you have been heard and we are listening carefully".
"No matter what feedback you gave us, you have been heard and we are listening carefully. Thank you," the team wrote. "What matters now, as always, is what we do rather than what we say. We're developers, and our focus is first on resolving any issues people have with the game as it is, then on future free updates which will improve, expand and build on the No Man's Sky universe. This is a labour of love for us, and it's just the beginning."
No Man's Sky is currently available on PS4 and PC.
