Hello Games has released yet another update for No Man’s Sky! I’ve long said I’ll start playing this game when they stop making it, but alas, they just don’t seem to be able to stop. That being said, No Man’s Sky has transformed from a pretty basic space exploration sim into one of the most ambitious space sim games ever created. According to its release notes, the Sentinel 3.84 Update fixes a wealth of issues with the game, as well as address a few crashing issues.
Some issues with input, as well as rendering crashes have been resolved. Also, the annoying bug that turned screenshots black when DLAA was enabled has been resolved. OF course, to get the update, just launch the client in Steam and it’ll automatically update itself.
Then just take a deep breath, wait a few days, another huge update will likely be released.
