Hello Games has released No Man’s Sky update 2.31 today implementing some quick fixes after the Living Ship update. Here’s what you need to know about it.
No Man’s Sky has been updated to version 2.30 with another major content update. This new patch was officially referred to as the Living Ship update by Hello Games. As it is the case with most of the content updates that have launched for the game, this one opened another new set of issues for users.
Hello Games quickly launched a hotfix for the PC version that was available as the experimental branch of the game on Steam. Here are the patch notes for No Man’s Sky update 2.31, which is out on PS4 and Xbox One today.
