New screenshots popped up surrounding that of Sean Murray and Hello Games’ No Man’s Sky. The latest screenshots could point to the upcoming update 1.3 according to fans, where the screenshots reveal a portal and a ship. No Man’s Sky is out now for PC and PS4.
Both the screenshots above and below for No Man’s Sky are said to be linked to update 1.3 and the long-running alternate reality game (ARG), which has kept No Man’s Sky Reddit community doing large amounts of research in an attempt to figure out what is to come in the forthcoming update.
The images that have shown up recently, especially the former image, corresponds to the wakingtitan.com site as Reddit user M-p-3 has pointed out. Presumably, these are the codes that are thought to be entered to open the portal to your destination.
Moreover, according to gamedetectives.net the entire three step phase has been completed. Phase 3 consisted of the conclusion of the Twitch stream that began at the end of Phase 2. After completion, the rogue AI Loop16 asked the community a final question “SHOULD I EXIST?”, and the community response was “yes”.
After receiving this response, Loop16 and Emily of the ETARC forums were revealed as being one in the same. Loop16 gave a thank you speech and shortly after this, players received emails with the subject line “Waking Titan has Ended.” Here is what the message had to say:
Hello, Citizen Scientist, Thank you for your contributions to Waking Titan. The developments that took place during Phase 3 were somewhat concerning, but together we have set in motion truly world-shaping events. We will continue to inform the Citizen Science Division of privileged information or any need for collaborators on a new project.
But we do have a few loose ends to tie up with you before we move on, so let’s proceed.
First, we’re pleased to announce that all 10,000 Level 4 Atlas Passes are in production. Note that due to transit times for mail, some may take several weeks to be delivered.
Next, our CEO Elizabeth Leighton has asked us to include a personal note of gratitude:
“Thank you for all your diligent efforts, Citizen Scientists. It’s been an amazing journey for all of us. I’ve watched you thrive and achieve from those first Phase 1 radio ads all the way through the intensity of Phase 3. I’ve been impressed at every turn by how brilliant you’ve been, how voracious, how kind, how thoughtful. It’s been an honor and a privilege. On behalf of the Atlas Foundation, and on behalf of the world, thank you.”
The Mercury subroutine has concluded successfully, and a new memo from SM about this process is coming in the next 24 hours. We hope it will answer a few key questions you have about our program, and about what comes next.
No Man’s Sky is out now for PC and PS4, and is said to be updated to version 1.3 sometime this month.
