No Man’s Sky developer Hello Games have finalized the first post-launch patch for their space exploration sim, which introduces several performance improvements for the PC version and “improves stability” for PlayStation 4 users, studio head Sean Murray has confirmed via Twitter.

As of writing, the update is now live for both platforms, but there’s no in-depth patch notes just yet – those are “incoming.” but the gist of it seems to be that the “PC build adds support for more hardware + improves frame rate at low spec. PS4 improves stability + lots more,” says Murray.

Continuing, Murray expresses his bewilderment at how many people have so far taken to exploring No Man’s Sky‘s universe, and that less than 1% of those have “raised support issues.” Despite the relatively small amount of affected users though, Murray says that they »

Developer Hello Games is aware of the technical issues affecting No Man’s Sky, and has vowed to roll out a PS4 patch “as soon as possible” soon after the PC version ships today, Friday 12.

Word comes by way of the studio’s official blog, where Lead Designer and Founder Sean Murray confirmed that a Qa team has been brought on board to zero in on those problems, all the while outlining some workarounds for a handful of common problems.

At a loss as to why No Man’s Sky is jittering on PlayStation 4? Here are some handy tips:

If you believe you are stuck, or can’t reach your ship, be aware you can jetpack forever whilst pushing against any surface. If you have made a mistake – you can revert to any of your two previous saves in the Options Menu. »

No Man’s Sky Limited Edition Packaging Was Altered To Cover Online Play Logo

11 August 2016 8:38 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Adding further fuel to the fire in the debate over whether No Man’s Sky actually has any form of multiplayer component, website Pcgn has confirmed (via VideoGamer) that European versions of the space exploration game’s limited edition originally had an online play logo printed on the box, but that it has since been covered by a sticker that changes the age-rating from 12 to 7 and completely covers any mention of the former. You can see the image above for an example of the correction.

Pcgn notes that standard retail copies of Hello Games’ ambitious indie title haven’t received the same treatment, but given that manufacturers could easily print more sleeves with the added changes during production, they could well have had the online play logo present originally, too. Interestingly, such changes haven’t been made to the Us versions of the limited edition.

Two No Man’s Sky Players Have Already Met, But They Can’t See Each Other

10 August 2016 7:14 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite Hello Games’ Sean Murray having stated numerous times prior to release that the chances of two players running into each other in No Man’s Sky were almost nil, such an event has already occurred. Just a day after release, no less.

The seemingly impossible feat was recorded over on Reddit, wherein user TheGalacticCactus discovered that a star system he travelled to had already been visited and named by another user: Psytokat. The former describes his surprise at the discovery, describing how he got in contact with Psytokat to arrange a meet-up.

I warped for the first time today. The Star system I landed in was discovered by a user named Psytokat… so I messaged him asking him to meet me at a space station. We are currently 4 systems away! We will meet at a space station.

No Man’s Sky is upon us – at least, for those on PlayStation 4 – and one need only take a glance at YouTube or Twitch to find hundreds of budding explorers mapping out the vast expanses of Hello Games’ universe.

But with the advent of new gaming hardware – specifically the confirmed PS4 Neo, which looks set to be revealed next month – could make for a “fundamentally” different experience in No Man’s Sky, Studio Founder Sean Murray told the Daily Star.

“If you play another game and if they do a remaster of that game, what they will do is up-res the textures and things like that. That’s because the base geometry, the base shape of the world, the way of playing is totally like lost, basically. 100’s of people have worked on it thousands of hours to create what you see. »

Despite the fact that it’s not even officially out yet, No Man’s Sky has just received a gigantic patch that makes major improvements to the base game and even adds new content for players to enjoy when the spacefaring survival sim launches tomorrow on PC and PlayStation 4.

Developer Hello Games proudly announced via Twitter back in July that their labor of love had finally gone gold, a moment that fans worldwide were no doubt eager to celebrate after having to sit through a few frustrating delays to ensure the final product lived up to the hype. You’d think that studio head Sean Murray and the rest of the team would have taken a well-deserved holiday following the good news, but the opposite couldn’t be more true, as Murray says (via VideoGamer).

No Man's Sky: day one patch makes big changes to the game

8 August 2016 2:08 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Aug 8, 2016

From multiple endings to harsh weather, the day one patch for No Man's Sky brings in some sweeping changes. Here are some of the details...

The pre-launch buzz surrounding No Man's Sky is such that players have been champing at the bit to get hold of early copies of Hello Games' indie space sim. We recently heard the news that one player paid over $1,300 for a PlayStation 4 edition of the game sold on eBay, and promptly raced through the campaign in an unexpectedly fast 30 hours. 

Hello Games has since announced that it's bringing out a day one patch that will bring far-reaching changes to just about every aspect of the game. And unfortunately for those who've shelled out to get an early copy, they'll have to wipe their save file and start the game again to see all the changes.

One month ago, developer Hello Games formally announced that No Man’s Sky, the sprawling space title bound for PS4 and PC, had finally gone gold ahead of its August release. But it seems the development team still had some last-minute tweaks to check off once production had wrapped.

That’s according to a last-minute status report from Sean Murray, Founder and Lead Designer at Hello Games, who took to Twitter to confirm that work on the game’s first update is now complete and it’ll herald “lots of new features, balancing and content.”

No further details were disclosed about the inaugural No Man’s Sky update – not its size nor its expected release date – but Murray’s post did come tethered with a behind-the-scenes peek at the humble development team at work.

No Man's Sky fan sparks controversy after purchasing early copy of the game

Matthew Byrd Aug 2, 2016

An enthusiastic No Man's Sky fan has paid $1,300 for an early copy of the game - and reveals how long it took him to get to its ending...

We knew that the highly-anticipated No Man's Sky was going to generate a lot of discussions once it was finally released, but, thanks to one dedicated fan who acquired a copy of the game early, those discussions have begun much sooner than anyone could have anticipated. 

A Dailymotion user by the name of Daymeeuhn revealed recently that he has spent just over $1,300 on eBay in order to acquire a copy of No Man's Sky a couple of weeks ahead of its August 9th release date. Daymeeuhn describes himself as a member of the game industry who has "done well" for himself financially speaking and felt compelled to jump at the opportunity to acquire a copy of No Man's Sky »

No Man's Sky developer accused of using unlicensed superformula

21 July 2016 3:15 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Matthew Byrd Jul 22, 2016

Due out next month, space sim No Man's Sky generates its universe with an unlicensed equation, a company claims...

A Dutch development company has accused No Man's Sky developer Hello Games of using one of their patented computer formulas without express permission, according to a report by Ars Technica. 

Genicap, a software development company, has been working on a computer formula dubbed the Superformula which - according to the company's website - is capable of taking "a single equation that uses only a few variables to create an infinite number of supershapes." This formula was patented by the company in 2004 and now they are claiming that Hello Games is using it without a proper license. 

In an interview with the Telegraaf, a representative of Genicap claims that they have never licensed the use of their Superformula to Hello Games and that they "certainly do not want to stop the launch, »

New Four-Part Video Series For No Man’s Sky Begins With Exploration

14 July 2016 9:53 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The first part in a new string of videos showcasing the four key pillars of No Man’s Sky’s core gameplay has been released today by Sony and Hello Games. Kicking off the four-part series is Exploration, which puts together a montage of vastly different ecosystems the player may discover on their journey to the center of the universe.

An inconceivable “18 quintillion planets” make up No Man’s Sky vast digital expanse, so visiting them all will be, with no exaggeration, simply impossible. Of course, the completionists among you will no doubt give it your best shot (good luck with that), but unearthing never-before-seen species of animals and flora makes up just one of the aforementioned pillars.

It’s official: Four years on from the moment it entered development at Hello Games, work on ambitious space sim No Man’s Sky has wrapped up, with the studio’s Sean Murray taking to Twitter to confirm that the new IP has now gone gold.

Considered to be the most-anticipated release of the year by Amazon customers, No Man’s Sky was first unveiled all the way back in December of 2013, touting an entire universe of planets and star systems vying to be explored.

Since then, excitement for the game has at times threatened to consume Hello Games’ budding new IP, and one need only look at the heinous death threats directed at Murray when No Man’s Sky was postponed for a second time in May of this year.

No Man’s Sky developer offers update as release date draws near

26 June 2016 11:22 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

No Man’s Sky, the ambitious, procedurally-generated space exploration sim, is still on track for its August 9th release in the Us (August 10th in Europe) and the head of the developer of the game, Hello Games’ Sean Murray, has issued an update on the game.

Hello, Sean here, working super, super hard on No Man’s Sky. Every day, the game is getting better and better, and despite all the late nights (and early mornings) we’re all working to get it finished and in your hands, it’s amazing to see it all coming together.

You might already know this, but we had to delay the game from its original June release date. It’s now August 9 in north America, and August 10 in Europe. We knew that people would be disappointed, and we’ve certainly heard a lot from some who decided to tell us all about that. »

No Man’s Sky Dev On E3 Absence: “We Can’t Mess This Up”

24 June 2016 1:19 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Following extensive demos across both E3 2014 and 2015, British developer No Man’s Sky opted out of the chance to make it three trade shows on the trot by ensuring its long-awaited space simulator remained cloaked in mystery.

All of this during one of, if not the busiest weeks on the industry’s calendar. Addressing the no-show via Twitter, studio co-founder Sean Murray revealed that the developer made the conscious decision to forgo E3 in favor of adding what is surely the final sheen of polish to its new IP.

Per Twitter:

Wilmer Valderrama Joins Cast of CBS’ ‘NCIS’

16 June 2016 3:31 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The actor Formerly Known As Fez has a new mission. Wilmer Valderrama has joined the cast of “NCIS,” playing a NCIS field agent who’s been under deep cover for years – and has finally resurfaced.

“Many agents don’t know he’s still on the job or that he’s even alive,” according to CBS’ logline.  “Now, he’s back and his dedication to job and country has left him an unpredictable, charismatic loose cannon.”

Valderrama helps fill a void left by departing “NCIS” castmember Michael Weatherly. The actor recently recurred on “Grey’s Anatomy” and also appeared on “Minority Report,” “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” and “Awake.” He first came to fame as “Fez” on Fox’s “That ’70s Show.”

The actor’s film credits include the indie dramas “To Whom It May Concern,” from French director Manu Boyer, and “The Adderall Diaries,” opposite Amber Heard and James Franco, »
