As promised, Hello Games recently released a No Man?s Sky update. Patch 1.05 not only focused greatly on fixing the game?s performance on the PC, but it also fixed a handful of user reported issues on the PS4. With the patch notes recently releasing, it?s pretty easy to keep track of how much the game has improved post-update.
PC Performance Updates
No Man?s Sky for the PC launched horribly and the game performed very poorly regardless of the PC set up. Patch 1.05 addresses these issues is several ways. One of the biggest enhancements is that the game will now support PCs running on AMD Phenom. Players who are also experiencing crashes when using Alt+Tab will be happy to know that the game will continue playing even when switching tabs.
Framerate drops are also less likely thanks to a fix to Shader Caching. Additionally, the game will now run in 30/60 FPS when it is set in the settings unlike before.
Patch 1.05 also fixed a handful of reported bugs. A lot of crash triggers have been fixed including; crashes occurring during scanning, after warping and when warping inside a freighter. Getting stuck under the terrain was also a common issue before, but it?s all been taken care of with the update. Players shouldn?t worry about the game being stuck or being unplayable now.
Corrupted Save Files
A common woe of players is that the game could often create troubles by corrupting save files. Both PC and PS4 players should ?be happy to know that even corrupted save files can now be loaded.
Despite all the improvements made by the No Man?s Sky update, there is something that players should be worried about. Redditor DanVeytia reports that PSN storage save can?t load after the update. He deleted the game and re-installed it to gain access to his saves again through a backup. It?s not yet known if this is an isolated case, but having a backup save is recommended for now.
