Patch 1.13


We've just released patch 1.13 which is available to download now. Full notes are as follows:

Patch notes
  • Fixed a bug that would make the player character small.

  • Space battles will now vary in size more and players should see bigger battles.

  • Fixed the instantaneous death loop that could occur in survival mode if you saved with 1 health and no hazard protection. You will still be on the verge of death when you load in, but it won't happen instantaneously.

  • Fix for steam controller not being able to warp.

  • Removed up, down, left, right as quick menu navigation keys to allow left handed players to move while using the quick menu.

  • Page Up and Page down can now be used to navigate up and down in the quick menu.

  • Removed duplicated planets from discoveries menu.

  • Fixed an issue with redeeming promo ships in survival, which would result in the ship being spawned above the ground.

  • Fix for missing ruins underwater which could cause missions to point to nothing.

  • Various audio tweaks and fixes:
    - Added ladder climbing sounds.
    - Fixed base building prop sounds not playing when placed inside a Freighter.
    - Added sound effect for calling Freighters.
    - Added sound effect when using communication stations.
    - Fixed an issue which could affect ambient sound in Freighters.
    - Changed the sound effect when using the Terminus Teleporter.

  • Fixed some rare crashes.

If you come across any issues, be sure to leave us a bug report. Otherwise, we hope you continue to enjoy the Foundation Update!

Patch 1.12

First of all, thank you to everyone who’s been playing the Foundation Update. Your feedback has been incredibly helpful, keep it coming!

Following are the notes for our latest patch: 1.12, which addresses some of the main issues we’ve seen reported following the launch of 1.1 (Foundation).

Patch notes
  • [PC] Following reports of some people experiencing issues with the game while unsupported mods are installed, we’ve added mod detection which will show a warning screen on loading when mods are detected. A mouse click or button press will dismiss this screen. We have also introduced a new method for mod installation which should prevent player’s games from breaking when a new update is released. For details please see the ‘DISABLEMODS.TXT’ file in the \GAMEDATA\PCBANKS folder.

  • [PC] Allowed remapping of the build menu and quick menu commands to support Azerty keyboards.

  • [PC] We’ve enabled a temporary workaround for the SLI issues people are experiencing. If you are running in SLI, please disable TAA and the game should run. We are looking into a more permanent solution to this issue.

  • Fixed an issue which, in some rare cases, prevented NPCs from giving you mission critical dialogue.

  • Fixed a bug which could cause core items to be transferred from exosuit inventory to starship inventory.

  • Fixed a number of rare crashes (if you continue to experience crashes, please send a crash report and include your crash dumps).

  • [PC] Fix for monitor detection on PCs with 3rd party remote desktop or screen sharing applications.

  • [PC] Running the game via the .exe file should no longer give Steam Init errors.

  • Fixed an issue where underwater buildings could spawn without doors which in rare cases would mean the NPC missions could not be completed. (Note: If you are still being pointed to missing facilities during the NPC questlines, you can either claim a new base and re-build the NPC terminal, or if you have a Freighter, remove the NPC terminal from your base and rebuild it in the Freighter. The NPC should then give you new coordinates. We are still working on a more permanent fix for this issue).

    This update is live now! If you continue to experience issues, be sure to let us know by submitting a bug report.

About This Game

Inspired by the adventure and imagination that we love from classic science-fiction, No Man's Sky presents you with a galaxy to explore, filled with unique planets and lifeforms, and constant danger and action.

In No Man's Sky, every star is the light of a distant sun, each orbited by planets filled with life, and you can go to any of them you choose. Fly smoothly from deep space to planetary surfaces, with no loading screens, and no limits. In this infinite procedurally generated universe, you'll discover places and creatures that no other players have seen before - and perhaps never will again.

Embark on an epic voyage

At the centre of the galaxy lies a irresistible pulse which draws you on a journey towards it to learn the true nature of the cosmos. But, facing hostile creatures and fierce pirates, you'll know that death comes at a cost, and survival will be down to the choices you make over how you upgrade your ship, your weapon and suit.

Find your own destiny

Your voyage through No Man's Sky is up to you. Will you be a fighter, preying on the weak and taking their riches, or taking out pirates for their bounties? Power is yours if you upgrade your ship for speed and weaponry.

Or a trader? Find rich resources on forgotten worlds and exploit them for the highest prices. Invest in more cargo space and you'll reap huge rewards.

Or perhaps an explorer? Go beyond the known frontier and discover places and things that no one has ever seen before. Upgrade your engines to jump ever farther, and strengthen your suit for survival in toxic environments that would kill the unwary.

Share your journey

The galaxy is a living, breathing place. Trade convoys travel between stars, factions vie for territory, pirates hunt the unwary, and the police are ever watching. Every other player lives in the same galaxy, and you can choose to share your discoveries with them on a map that spans known space. Perhaps you will see the results of their actions as well as your own...
