No Man's Sky 1.23 patch notes

The updates keep coming for Hello Games’ No Man’s Sky, with the game’s recent Pathfinder update coming earlier this month that made the game look and play better. Now today the 1.23 update is live, coming in at 1.96 GB on PlayStation 4 and 135 MB on PC. While there are multiple bug fixes to report, there’s also a new setting that PS4 fans will appreciate.

The setting in question is the ability to lock the game’s framerate at 30 frames-per-second on PlayStation 4, which is good for those of you who are having framerate issues. This has been set as the default option when playing the game on the standard PlayStation 4, though those playing on PlayStation 4 Pro will have to switch it on manually. The following is everything included in the 1.23 patch:

  • Optimised HBAO so that it runs faster
  • Added an option to lock framerate on PS4 to 30 fps to keep the frame rate stable

  • Fixed and inventory exploit when purchasing multiple ships in a freighter that allows you to duplicate your ship’s inventory

  • Fix for certain UI elements having over-saturated colours in HDR

  • Fixes for the white sphere that shows when at the photo mode boundary
  • Fix for ladders vanishing in bases
