No Man’s Sky Beyond launched earlier this week, bringing some huge changes to the game and VR support. Unfortunately, this massive update also came with a few problems, particularly for PC and VR players, who experienced performance issues and crashes. However, Hello Games has been quick to address these problems, with several patches already in place.
So far, No Man’s Sky Beyond has had four patches in the days following release, fixing crashing issues on PS4 and PC. Beyond that, those attempting to play in VR mode with a Windows Mixed Reality headset will want to make sure they have installed patch 2.05, as this update fixes crashes for Windows MR users.
Other improvements have arrived for the game’s new massively multiplayer social spaces, which should now have fewer performance issues for PC players. If you have been having issues with crashes while spawning freighters or in the game’s menu, then you will want to hang on for Patch 2.06, which should address those two specific problems within the next couple of days.
There are more fixes in the experimental beta branch of No Man’s Sky on Steam, which you can opt in to. For the time being, Hello Games is updating their Steam Forum post with new information on fixes as they come through.
KitGuru Says: No Man’s Sky Beyond is a hugely impressive update but there are some lingering problems. Fortunately, Hello Games has proven over the last couple of years that it is keen on addressing these issues as quickly as possible. If patches keep coming in at their current rate, all major issues may be wiped out in no time at all.
