The latest patch for No Man’s Sky has been released, and here’s the full list of changes and fixes with this update. This update fixes some of the biggest bugs from the huge 3.00 Origins update that released earlier this month. The Origins update reworked most of the universe and added all sorts of new flora, fauna, and environments to No Man’s Sky, so some issues were bound to pop up. Performance issues have been addressed as well, which should please players with large bases who were experiencing framerate issues. Here’s everything new with No Man’s Sky update 3.02.
