No Man’s Sky Beyond Update 2.11 Fixes Base-Building Issues and Crashing on Consoles

A few weeks after the release of Beyond, No Man’s Sky’s latest expansion, developer Hello Games is still updating the game to ensure it runs as smoothly as possible. And now, a new patch is live on PS4 in the form of update 2.11, giving players a better overall experience. Many issues being addressed are in regards to the game’s base-building mode, as well as crash fixes.

For example, many objects previously had snapping issues during base construction that are now being addressed. Along with that, some players reported crashes while trying to delete legacy base parts, as well as crashes impacting large bases. All of those issues have been fixed.

Considering No Man’s Sky saw over 2 million players since the launch of the Beyond expansion, it makes sense that Hello Games would want to continue to support the game and make sure players are happy. With Beyond’s long-awaited VR integration, players are now able to explore the galaxy in an even more immersive way.

Those still looking to get a copy of No Man’s Sky along with all of its expansions can look forward to a physical package which will release on September 10, 2019. This will feature a copy of the game and all of its content.
