'No Man's Sky' files hint at upcoming ground vehicles

You could be driving a buggy on alien worlds.

When Hello Games said that its No Man's Sky Foundation Update was laying the groundwork for things to come, it definitely wasn't kidding. Reddit user eegandj has discovered multiple files that hint at the addition of a buggy to the open-ended space game. There's an incomplete 3D model of the ground vehicle, icons, textures and even a folder conspicuously marked "buggy" -- wonder what that's for? He even managed to bring the unfinished model into the game to see what it looks like in practice.

There are no guarantees that you'll be driving across alien planets in a buggy any time soon, or at all. It's not uncommon for software developers to leave unused assets in updates, even if it's just due to expediency -- it can be easier to keep stray files and code than tidy things up. If this is a sign of what's to come, though, it's good news for players who don't like walking for minutes on end just to collect resources or discover a new base.
