Hello Games continues to clean up the various bugs the NEXT update brought along.
Hello Games’ NEXT overhaul of their space sim No Man’s Sky is ambitious, if still a bit flawed, but for many, it finally realizes the full potential and vision of the game, as was promised to us all the way back in 2016, when the game finally launched after years of hype.
That said, it’s still not perfect- and I don’t mean just in terms of content or quality, either. I just mean that there’s actually quite a few bugs and glitches in the game, although to Hello Games’ credit, they’ve been working overtime on quashing them over the last few days, ever since the NEXT update relaunched the game late last month.
Update 1.53, which is available to download now for all three platforms the game is on, is a part of that initiative. It includes a lot of bug fixes, such as improved animations while jetpacking, improvements make to exocraft laser damage, as well as a preventative fix for a “potential stability issue” that concerns mission handling. There’s other stuff as well, but nothing in the way of major new features- which, come on, we just got NEXT. Don’t be greedy.
No Man’s Sky NEXT is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. You can see the full patch notes for the update below.
