No Man’s Sky Patch 1.51 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC Fixes Save Games and Much More [UPDATED]
No Man's Sky launched its 1.50 patch with a few snags, but Hello Games is being quick at fixing it with a follow-up patch numbered 1.51.
Today Hello Games released a new patch for its reborn game No Man’s Sky, or No Man’s Sky Next as many call it now.
The patch is now available for PS4 and PC,
and Xbox One will follow as mentioned by Sean Murray himself on Twitter.
Update: The Xbox One version of the patch has been released as well.
First and foremost, the patch fixes the issue that broke save games, which is good news indeed. That being said, the list of fixes is quite long, as expected from something applying some bandages to an update as extensive as 1.50.
You can read the full patch notes below.

In case you missed it, update 1.50 brought massive changes to No Man’s Sky, including co-op multiplayer. You can check out a trailer showing it off. If you’re unfamiliar with the game in general, you can also check out my original review. Do keep in mind that a lot has been added since then, so the review is fairly obsolete.
