‘No Man’s Sky’ Latest News & Update: Hello Games Rolls Out 1.23 Update To Address Framerate Issues
Hello Games has rolled out another update for “No Man’s Sky”, a follow up to the celebrated “Pathfiner” update. Patch 1.23 is now in transit, an update meant to fix bugs and address framerate issues.
Patch 1.23 for “No Man’s Sky” is available for both the PS4 and PC versions, about 1.96 GB and 135 MB respectively. It is expected to fix bug issues such as freighters being too cheap, ships spawning on top of each other and game crashes when running out of memory, Attack of the Fanboy listed. There are plenty of other bugs being reported, the majority of which will hopefully be covered.
Aside from the bugs plaguing “No Man’s Sky”, patch 1.23 does come with an interesting new feature. This is in reference to a player’s ability to lock the game framerate at 30 fps on the PlayStation 4, a resolution for those PS4 gamers suffering from the framerate issues. It has been set at default for PS4 owners while PlayStation 4 Pro owner can switch it on manually.
Hello Games continues to try and improve “No Man’s Sky” through updates. Patch 1.23 follows a recent one which saw the inclusion of highly-anticipated vehicles to the ambitious space exploration game, Kotaku reported. Aside from the new vehicles, there have been marked improvements in the game such as sharper colors on textures and visuals.
The “No Man’s Sky” Pathfinder update did bring in lots of improvements in the aesthetic aspect but performance is still key. The game didn’t exactly debut with flying colors last year but such has not dampened the spirits of Hello Games and its team of developers. Among the issues that drew criticism for “No Man’s Sky” was game instability and recurring gameplay. The updates have somehow erased that stigma with more improvements expected over the horizon.
