Patch 1.51 is currently available for PC, but Xbox One and PS4 players will have to wait.
Hello Games’ No Man’s Sky NEXT has received a new hotfix for PC which fixes a rather annoying save issue (among other bugs). The saving issue would showcase the correct playtime in a file but start players at the beginning, thus erasing any progress made. Patch 1.51 should fix this though.
Unfortunately, it’s currently live for PC only. The patch will go live for Xbox One and PS4 “ASAP” according to creator Sean Murray on Twitter. Due to the nature of console certification, there will be some delay. Along with addressing save issues, the patch also fixes a number of different crashes resulting from memory corruption and saving on a freighter.
A crash that could occur when fleet expeditions concluded and the capital ship wasn’t present has also been fixed, along with a “number of memory leaks”. If you’ve been facing issues with warping in multiplayer causing you to spawn on a planet rather than in space, then the patch addresses that as well.
No Man’s Sky 1.51 Patch Notes
A new build has been sent to experimental on PC. This will go live to everyone on PC soon. Hot fix patches are in flight for PS4 and XBox (MS/Sony cert means this is a tiny bit slower, but will be with you asap) https://t.co/wm30JeWt5W
