No Man's Sky 3.13 update

Following its move to next-gen consoles, new bugs and issues have arisen on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S versions of the game. The No Man’s Sky 3.13 update goes some way towards fixing these bugs. Players will note fixes to failed downloads of shared bases and invisible planetary props, just to name a couple of examples.

Here is the complete list of patch notes for the 3.13 update to No Man’s Sky.

Following this 3.13 update, No Man’s Sky should now be a better and more stable game. No matter which platform it’s played on. Players will appreciate the variety of visual and bug fixes applied. It’s nice, too, that players can now customize the levels of rumble on all gamepads.

Perhaps the biggest fix of the lot, though, is on Xbox. The annoying crash when transferring items to and from other Xbox players has been removed. Players on Xbox consoles should now be able to freely transfer items with one another.

Following the game’s move to next-gen, perhaps No Man’s Sky has moved into next phase. This was teased before, with the game’s Origins update planned as ‘the beginning of something new’. That update was a big one, as it finally added giant sandworms into the game. In other online game news, the Winter Express LTE is looking different in Apex Legends this year.
