Hello Games is rolling out a new update for its instant hit video game, “No Man’s Sky.” Players who are using the PS4 console can already download the update since it is live on the platform. On the other hand, PC players can expect the update to arrive to them soon.
The 1.07 update of “No Man’s Sky” has a file size of 671 MB, which makes it the largest update for the action-adventure survival game since it was launched on Aug. 9, according to GearNuke.
As of late, the changelog of the update only mentions “bug fixes,” but players can expect Hello Games to release its detailed patch notes soon.
The release of “No Man’s Sky” 1.07 update comes days after Hello Games took to Twitter this past Wednesday to ensure players that they will be fixing all of the issues by releasing new patches.
Meanwhile, though the indie studio has already assured players that the bugs and annoying crashes would be resolved soon, it appears that the public's interest in the game has plummeted.
As per ScreenGurus, there are users who have asked for refunds over the past few days, and Valve is already addressing such requests via the Steam refund page.
Additionally, in the wake of the criticisms and negative reviews that “No Man’s Sky” has been receiving since its launch, the game has disappeared from Steam’s Top Sellers chart.
ScreenGurus also reports that when doing a quick search for “No Man’s Sky,” the system does not find an entry for it. However, as of writing, the game is very much available on Steam.
“No Man’s Sky” is a survival action game set in a massive artificial universe with 18 quintillion explorable planets. The game involves internal physics, so objects are generated depending on the action of the player, Vox has learned.
At launch, the game was well-received by the gaming community. However, its fame quickly dwindled, with Digital Spy reporting that its physical sales dropped by 81 percent a week after reigning supreme on the charts in the U.K. Meanwhile, Inverse stated early this week that Steam players are now averaging 30,000 a day, which is too little compared to the game’s more than 212,000 players before.
