No Man’s Sky Update 4.21 Patch Notes

Bug fixes

  • Fixed a rare crash related to multiplayer starship combat.
  • Fixed a crash related to ground combat in multiplayer.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause incorrect controller configuration on Steam.
  • Fixed a crash related to NPC starship navigation.

The latest expansion introduces the new Interceptor ship class to all players, which was previously exclusive to expeditions. This comes with a range of new Sentinel tech, including unique upgrades for the Interceptor ships, the Aeron Turbojet jet pack, and Sentinel Multi-Tools. To obtain these upgrades, players must collect new radiant shards and anomalous crystals found on corrupted planets and battle corrupted Sentinels, which produce glowing crystals. Players can also challenge Sentinel Capital ships for even greater rewards.

The update includes several graphical improvements too, such as Dynamic Resolution Scaling and FidelityFX Super Resolution 2.0 on Xbox platforms, as well as memory optimisations across all platforms. Of particular note for PSVR 2 owners, there is a significant enhancement to image quality in PSVR2, and players can now adjust the placement of wrist-mounted gear and pop-up menus.

Since launching on PlayStation 4 and PC back in 2016, No Man’s Sky has come a long way. The sci-fi exploration game has grown into a colossus following a string of major content updates, adding groundbreaking new features from base-building to fully-integrated multiplayer. The title has also touched down on additional platforms including Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and VR.
