'No Man's Sky' PC And PS4 Update To Be Ready Soon; Game's File Size Revealed

The "No Man's Sky" PC and PS4 update may be available soon. Hello Games has confirmed that they are already working on the update for the highly-anticipated space exploration game.

The news comes a month before the "No Man's Sky" PC and PS4 release date. The game will be available by Aug. 9 in the U.S., on Aug. 10 in Europe and Aug. 12 in the U.K.

PC Gamer reported that Hello Games boss Sean Murray took to Twitter to reveal that "No Man's Sky" PC and PS4 has passed the certification in the U.S., Europe and Asia. The team is currently working on the game's Japanese submission.

"Well, waiting for a build to upload really," Murray tweeted. "Actually we're already busy on Update 1."

IGN noted that the Update 1 could be a day one patch for "No Man's Sky" PC and PS4. It may also be a content update that will be released post-launch.

Last week, Murray announced on Twitter that the game just went gold. "I'm so incredibly proud of this tiny team. 4 years of emotions," he wrote.

This came after Hello Games experienced a delay back in May, with the game's release date supposed to be scheduled for June. This time, "No Man's Sky" PC and PS4 will finally be available next month.

According to Express, Hello Games has also revealed the space exploration game's file size and it's not as heavy as some would think. Apparently, with its 18 quintillion planets, "No Man's Sky" PC and PS4 would only take up 6GB of storage space on disc.

"For those asking - size of No Man's Sky on disc is just 6GB," Murray said in another tweet. "A lot of that is audio."

The publication added that the size of the downloadable version is still unclear. There has been no announcement yet for the space needed for the update as well.
