No Man’s Sky Past launched as we speak, bringing with it VR assist, 32-player multiplayer on PC, and lots of other new features I’ve gotten uninterested in summarizing firstly of those articles. Sadly, Past additionally introduced a number of bugs and glitches with it.
It is hardly a shock that not all the pieces is working immaculately with an replace this large, however a number of the points are fairly severe. Gamers have particularly been reporting a whole lot of crashes, most notably whereas coming into The Nexus, the model new participant hub the place astronauts can hang around, socialize, and crew up for multiplayer missions.
I can affirm. My first go to to The Nexus went easily, although the participant I joined for a mission crashed out of the session once we reached our goal planet (they rejoined a few minutes later, however then I crashed shortly after that). My subsequent go to to The Nexus, nevertheless, resulted in display screen freeze and a crash to desktop whereas flying into the doorway. And the time after that, I acquired inside The Nexus okay, nevertheless it was fully barren of gamers. I acquired one other CTD once I tried to go away. After I restarted I used to be nonetheless in The Nexus, in a T-pose, and crashed three extra occasions: as soon as whereas making an attempt to fly out and twice whereas working by place searching for a teleporter to flee with. At one level I fell by the ground of the hub and form of bobbed round. So, there’s clearly a number of points with the multiplayer area.
VR is proving a bit spotty as properly for quite a lot of gamers, notably on the Valve Index. A number of individuals have reported that they cannot see one in every of their palms whereas in VR, and a few have mentioned they have been experiencing laggy efficiency (which will be particularly tough to abdomen whereas carrying a headset). Quite a few crashing points have been reported each whereas in The Nexus and at different occasions whereas utilizing VR.
Keyboard controls are additionally oddly clean. They’re mapped they usually work, however on the menu display screen no keymapping is displayed and there is no means at the moment to customise the keymapping in any respect. There are additionally a number of different points being reported, like freighter storage rooms being fully inaccessible.
Hopefully there will likely be some fast patches utilized and these points will likely be mounted quickly. Within the meantime, if you happen to’re having issues, you can report bugs here.
Regardless of the crashes, I did have some enjoyable prolonged periods with no issues. I even manged to feed some creatures with the brand new craftable meals pellets, and whereas they’ve have not paid me again with milk (but—although I vow they may) they actually are pooping so much.
