Hello Games may have left us with a long silence between the game’s launch and the recent updates, but now they’re releasing updates with a furious pace and bringing No Man’s Sky up to the game we all wanted to see. The latest update, which brings the game to version 1.13 on the PC, looks set to improve space battles, fix a range of audio problems, crashes and more.
Space battles should now offer more variety, and should also be bigger now too. They’re certainly more interesting and we look forward to seeing how Hello Games can improve them further in future updates.
No Man’s Sky – Update 1.13 Changelog:
Fixed a bug that would make the player character small.
Space battles will now vary in size more and players should see bigger battles.

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

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.
