No Man’s Sky 2.32 update live following Living Ship update

Hello Games have released a new patch for colossal space-faring sim, No Man’s Sky. Update 2.32 is now available to download, making various fixes across PC and consoles.


This patch is a follow up to last week’s Living Ship update. Introduced in 2.3, there’s a new class of ship available that – as you’ve probably guessed – is built from strange organic material.

In order to gain access to Living Ships players will have to complete a new series of “Starbirth” missions. Through these missions, players will carry out Korvax experiments which leads to the discovery of these new ships.

Here’s a full like of changes and fixes being made in 2.32:
