A brand new update went live for No Man’s Sky on PC, PS, and Xbox One. With No Man’s Sky Patch 2.53, you will find that this is quite a small update, as there is only four confirmed patch notes. Take note that the devs released an important fix for a rare networking crash related to base building. They also fixed a crash that could occur when NPC pilots get into their ships to take off. Below you will find the complete list of all No Man’s Sky Patch 2.53 patch notes.
- Fixed a rare networking crash related to base building.
- On PC only, fixed a crash that could occur when NPC pilots get into their ships to take off.
- We’ve fixed a number of issues specific to AMD GPUs. We are aware of other GPU specific crashes and are working with AMD to fix them on a driver level. In the meantime, they have recommended rolling back to the previous WHQL driver 20.4.2, which can be found here: link.
- We are also aware of a number of Windows 7 users who are unable to connect. This is a platform security issue, and requires an update to enable TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2 as default secure protocols in WinHTTP in Windows, found here: link.
In other news, Hello Games recently introduced cross-platform play in No Man’s Sky. This crossplay function allows all PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC players to share their multiplayer games without using the same game system. Hello Games talked in their official blog post about how hard they needed to work to actually make the crossplay function work across platforms.
They explained that they had to completely change the overall network architecture of the game, moving to another system that did allow crossplay and that gives them more flexibility for future changes in the game. In the same text they said that right now they are working on new content for the game, both large and small updates, that will arrive in the future of No Man’s Sky.
I remind you that Hello Games’ No Man’s Sky released on August 9, 2016 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
