Hello Games have dropped a new update for their wildly popular spacefaring sim, No Man’s Sky. Patch 3.63 delivers a wave of hotfixes following the game’s fresh Frontiers update.
Frontiers marks another bold expansion for No Man’s Sky, this time letting players build and oversee their very own alien settlements.
Settlements will occur naturally throughout the galaxy of No Man’s Sky on the procedurally generated planets, and you can become the overseer by earning their respect, which lets you name the town, choose further buildings, set up festivals, settle arguments and more. Your choices will change how the settlement progresses, whether you prioritise productivity or leisure, giving you a steady income.
If you’ve been encountering issues such Frontiers arrived in NMS, you might find a fix in the patch notes below. Update 3.63 is live on PC, Hello Games promising it will hit all available consoles soon.
