I've been playing the last tword days almost fine, though I had a friend tell me his crashed when he got his copy today. Pro tip don't throw it in standbye mode with the game running, I notice it always errors for me when I do this and leave it there for a long peeiod

So I have had least 1 crash during gameplay, but FYI to everyone.

Obviously back-uo your save as much as you can, but I noticed, everytime I put this my console into standbye and X amount of time goes by, if this game was running it'll crash the moment you hit select on it on the ps4 menu.

Mine crashed about 4 hours in at a monolith. Hasn't happened since, but thankfully my game reloaded like 10 seconds before the monolith so everything was all good.

Nothing has happened since that though. I have experienced no other bugs, issues, or problems at all besides that. I have been playing for about 9 to 10 hours total so far.

Mine crashed (froze) as well at some unknown planet. Luckily I had saved the game right before. I had been playing at least 3-4 hrs. No issues since.

Hopefully these problems will get fixed.

One crash right after a save (which I think might be the issue, walking too fast right when it's saving, either that or the server connect/disconnect issues because of heavy traffic yesterday). But, I am forced to start a new game because I grabbed the preorder ship before I finished the tutorial and now I can't make a warp drive. However, it's not a huge deal because the game is fantastic anyway!


No Man’s Sky’s 5.0 update has finally convinced me to explore its universe

When No Man’s Sky first launched all the way back in 2016, its main selling point was limitless exploration, across an impossibly vast procedurally generated world.

In theory, the universe was built for players to comb through meticulously, logging discoveries and charting the unknown while being gently directed by an overarching, albeit fairly slight main plot. In practice however, planet diversity was limited, with very little reason to hop from planet to planet.

Besides brief trips to farm resources that rarely warranted further interaction, I never quite engaged with what was, at the time, the game’s primary hook.

Since then, though, a frankly dizzying number of updates have added everything from base building to fleet management and farming

Nice advert piece, but they still haven't fixed the exploration part of the game, and the loading screens are still there.

Are you confusing this with Starfield?

I'm pretty sure he is, which is hilarious and on point for an anast comment

Yes, I was making two posts at once about Starfield and No man's sky and I typed this in the wrong box and hit reply without thinking. Low hanging fruit but enjoy it while you can.

"I'm pretty sure he is, which is hilarious and on point for an anast comment."

Prove it.

Starfield failing and the updates increased this game's popularity quiet a bit. And somehow they managed to do this during the worst inflation in the history of the world.
