The first No Man’s Sky update since the day zero patch has been released on PC and PS4, Hello Games has announced.
“Patch just out for PC version – Steam and GoG. Patch in submission for PS4 version, should be out very soon,” wrote Hello Games founder Sean Murray. The PS4 patch has since been released.
Murray added that “less than one per cent of players have raised support issues” and the studio aims to “resolve roughly 70% of them this week”.
Patch notes aren’t yet available, but Murray Tweeted that PC players should benefit from additional hardware support and improved frame rate on low spec systems. PS4 players should find a more stable experience, plus “lots more”.
Murray continued: “It’s pretty crazy for us how many people are playing. And how large a number even 1% of that user base is.”
Neither Hello Games or Sony has issued a firm figure on actual sales figures, though the PS4 version has done very well at UK retail.
As for when we might start to see new features, Murray says fixes come first.
“We’re totally focused on customer support right now. Then we’ll move onto improving and adding features to the game,” he explained.
Last week Murray said players can look forward to getting “the ability to build bases and own giant space freighters”. He also noted that “Temporal AA and my new cloud rendering tech should be coming soon too. It will really change the game again, and enhance it visually”.
