Houston, we have a patch.
Hello Games’ No Man’s Sky just received another update for PS4 and PC that will fix quite a few bugs and increase the size of space battles.
Patch 1.13 is available to download now. Space battles should be more diverse in size, with some of them being much bigger. This should get battles on par with gameplay we saw in early No Man’s Sky trailers. Check out the full list of patch notes below.
- Fixed a bug that would make the player character small.
- Space battles will now vary in size more and players should see bigger battles.
- Fixed the instantaneous death loop that could occur in survival mode if you saved with 1 health and no hazard protection. You will still be on the verge of death when you load in, but it won’t happen instantaneously.
- Fix for steam controller not being able to warp.
- Removed up, down, left, right as quick menu navigation keys to allow left handed players to move while using the quick menu.
- Page Up and Page down can now be used to navigate up and down in the quick menu.
- Removed duplicated planets from discoveries menu.
- Fixed an issue with redeeming promo ships in survival, which would result in the ship being spawned above the ground.
- Fix for missing ruins underwater which could cause missions to point to nothing.
- Various audio tweaks and fixes: – Added ladder climbing sounds. – Fixed base building prop sounds not playing when placed inside a Freighter. – Added sound effect for calling Freighters. – Added sound effect when using communication stations. – Fixed an issue which could affect ambient sound in Freighters. – Changed the sound effect when using the Terminus Teleporter.
- Fixed some rare crashes.
Lackluster battles have been a common complaint among players, along with other repetitive aspects of the game. Many players have said they experienced everything the game has to offer in a mere few hours of gameplay.
The Foundation Update, which launched on November 27th, added several new game modes and fixed a slew of bugs and player complaints. Hello Games promised this was the first in a series of free updates to improve No Man’s Sky, and it looks like they’re following through. Although, we’re still waiting on that multiplayer experience we were promised…
