No Man’s Sky has been getting internal updates a lot recently, and now we have a hint of what the Hello Games team has been working on. According to a new blog post, next week’s Path Finder Update will bring a new vehicle for exploring home planets.

Unfortunately, that small blurb is all we know about the patch for now. Just like last November’s Foundation Update, this second big content drop will “hint at a path ahead for the future.” Since Foundation gave players the ability to build bases on specific planets, now we’ll be able to traverse across the landscape surrounding those bases easier than ever before.

In fact, the ties between updates run deep enough that data miners found evidence of this new vehicle buried in the Foundation Update hours after its release. Assuming the unfinished design is still accurate, it looks like a dune buggy meant for covering large distances in a short amount of time. The complete patch notes will be revealed at a later date.

There’s been a brief uptick in No Man’s Sky chatter over the past few days thanks to the GDC panel conducted by the game’s lead programmer, Sean Murray. In his first appearance since his project’s rocky launch, the man compared development to “being fired into the sun with the skin burning from our faces.” In simpler terms, he referred to the period as “a rollercoaster ride.”

No Man’s Sky was heavily criticized for not including many of the features Hello Games had originally advertised. While still a far cry from that initial concept, these updates show signs of progress toward a larger goal.

No Man’s Sky is available now on PS4 and PC.
