Whether you like or dislike Hello Games’ No Man’s Sky, what the team has managed to do with the game following its rocky launch is commendable.
On Friday, Update 1.3: Atlas Rises was released and has made a slew of big changes to the overall gameplay experience. Including the ability to teleport, manipulate terrain, and explore with other players. Also about 30 extra hours of branching story has been added to deepen the game’s lore.
Only two days after the update’s launch, Hello Games has already released patch 1.31, which fixes some of the minor issues players found in the game.
The fixes include:
- Fixed an issue causing some players to crash when accessing the galactic map while having too many waypoints active
- Fixed a crash some players experience when pinning certain tech
- Fixed a crash which occurs when players with particularly long play-throughs attempt to save the game
- Fixed an issue that sometimes resulted in guild missions not crediting correctly
No Man’s Sky reviews on Steam have actually changed to “mostly positive” since update 1.3’s launch.
Sean Murray had been teasing Atlas Rises within the game’s community since the beginning of the summer until it was officially revealed by the studio a few days ago. Hello Games had even gone as far as sending some strange cassette tapes to mods on the game’s official Reddit page.
