Players have reported continuing technical issues with No Man’s Sky ever since it released last week. According to Hello Games however, those troubles may soon be a thing of the past.
Hello Games sent out an email yesterday, discussing the upcoming patches, which one Reddit user kindly posted. “Please be assured that we are working literally around the clock to resolve the most critical issues for players. We are collating all the data and support requests you have sent, and it is helping us to develop fixes,” the email claims.
“A patch for both PC and PS4 will be released this week. These will fix the most urgent and critical issues for all our players. Then next week another patch for PS4 and PC will be released which will help to improve the experience further for players. We will keep you updated,” it continues.
The first of the two mentioned patches, 1.04, is now live, though Hello Games still has yet to release patch notes at the time of writing. Given the multiple “experimental patches” released in beta form for the PC version of No Man’s Sky however, we can get a fairly clear idea of what Hello Games is working on.
Everything from stopping game crashes, restoring corrupted saves, and general performance upgrades all seem to be on deck.
Previously, No Man’s Sky creator Sean Murray promised these new updates would make players “very happy.”
