Bizarre No Man’s Sky Livestream Happening Now As Part Of Alternate-Reality Game

A complicated, enigmatic No Man’s Sky alternate-reality game has been in progress since June, and fans currently believe that it points to a big new update coming this month. Today, the ARG got even more mysterious: a livestream is underway right now, but there’s no word yet on what it’ll reveal.

The livestream is hosted by the Twitch account Waking Titan–the name of the ARG–and at the time of this writing, it shows a computer set up with the words “Test Scenario Inactive” visible on a monitor.

Strangely, on the desk is a cage with a hamster in it. According to a Waking Titan memo, this hamster is called “Subject M-N00-dl35” and is part of some sort of test. The memo reassures viewers that the animal faces no danger and won’t be exposed to anything harmful.

If you’re interested in reading more about the ARG and the efforts to solve it, check out the No Man’s Sky subreddit thread on it here. There’s no official word yet on what the August update might include; developer Hello Games has been tight-lipped about the game since its previous update in March. But fans speculate from hints in the ARG that it’ll feature a new species, among other additions.

If it is a content drop that’s being teased, it’ll be the third such update since No Man’s Sky’s release last year. The first, called the Foundation Update, added base-building and frigates, while the second added land vehicles.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
