No Man’s Sky update 2.33 live, see latest patch notes

Hello Games have launched a new update for their space-faring sim today, bringing No Man’s Sky to version 2.33.

The patch is available to download on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC with some minor features and fixes.


This is in response to player feedback and follows the game’s recent Living Ship update which added a new organic class of spacecraft to No Man’s Sky.

No Man’s Sky 2.33 patch notes

  • Enable tessellation on Xbox One X.
  • Introduced partial fix for an issue that could cause players to fall through the terrain.
  • Fixed an issue for PC players who lost their Void Egg during the final stages of the Starbirth mission and were not able to recover it.
  • Fix to prevent base parts from spawning around weekend mission objectives.

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

Since it’s original launch in August 2016, No Man’s Sky has undergone some pretty massive changes. It also caused quiet the controversy when eager players finally got their hands on the finished game to find that it didn’t quite deliver on some of its interstellar promises.

Hello Games went quiet but after a period of frustrating radio silence, the team rolled out their first major free expansion which added a new base building system to No Man’s Sky. From there, the Guildford based developer has continued to expand their flagship title in a myriad of exciting ways, the inclusion of multiplayer heralding the arrival of No Man’s Sky Next.

Last year saw yet another hefty content drop with the Beyond update. It made multiplayer a more robust, social, and seamless experience while also paving the way for full VR support.

It’s no wonder No Man’s Sky bagged our 2019 Game of the Year Award for Best Ongoing Game.

  1. Do you think this will ever come to Switch?

    • I can’t see it ever coming to Switch sadly. It’s quite a demanding game in terms of performance and I don’t there being much demand for a handheld version tbh.
