No Man’s Sky 2.06 Update Patch Notes

The No Man’s Sky 2.06 update patch notes have been shared by developer Hello Games. This is the fourth patch since the Beyond update dropped, with the dev looking to fix as many crashing issues as possible, in as little time as possible. While the Beyond update was impressive in the amount of content it added to the game, it unfortunately also introduced a number of problems that have prevented players from enjoying the new DLC. This new No Man’s Sky update, which is rolling out across PC, PS4, and Xbox One on August 16, implements more bug fixes which should hopefully allow players to experience Beyond without issue.

No Man's Sky 2.06 Update Patch Notes

As has been the case with all patches rolled out post-Beyond, it is PC players who will first be able to download and install the No Man’s Sky 2.06 update. Once the Sony and Microsoft certification process has been carried out, which takes a little time, both PS4 and Xbox One users will then see the 2.06 update available for download.
