What you need to know

  • No Man's Sky is an open-world game that spans the galaxy, letting players explore entire planets to scavenge for materials, knowledge, and more.
  • The game has received nearly-endless support since its launch and recently dropped the massive Next Generation update for next-gen consoles.
  • A new patch update rolling out today, 3.15, includes some improvements and fixes for this update.
  • This includes improved load speeds and optimized install sizes for PS5, as well as better visuals for PSVR.

No Man's Sky clearly doesn't intend to stop releasing updates and support any time soon and has just dropped the latest patch update on all platforms. Update 3.15 builds on the recently released Next Generation Update with further improvements and platform-specific fixes across the board. The update is rolling out now to the PS5, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC.

While there are notable improvements everywhere, the most significant improvements are coming to PSVR and PS5, and the changes are nice to see.

The full changelog for No Man's Sky 3.15 includes:

  • Stability improvements on PC
  • Resolution and performance for PSVR have been significantly improved when running on a PS5
  • Fixed a rendering-related crash on PS5
  • Xbox Series S in high-quality mode now has the improved ultra settings introduced in the Next Generation Update
  • Loading times on PS5 have been improved
  • PS5 install size has been optimized

No Man's Sky is a very different game than it was at launch and is certainly worth a long look for anyone who initially passed it up or gave up on it. To get the most out of No Man's Sky, consider one of the Best Headsets for PS5.
