No Man's Sky finally launched on Xbox One a few weeks ago, but it hasn't been a smooth experience for everyone. Social media websites like Twitter were flooded with reports that saved games were being corrupted. Luckily, Hello Games was able to identify the problem and quickly issue a patch. Since then, the team has been working hard to make the experience even better.
Last night, an update hit Xbox One. Aside from fixing some critical bugs, it adds new base building items and customization options. You can read about the major changes below.
- New base building parts which allow you to gain favor with the "Gek" or "Sentinels".
- New "Blazing Orbit" helmet.
- A pair of decal portraits of "Nada" and "Polo".
- Fixed an issue that could cause discoveries to stop saving.
- Fixed an issue that could cause portals to close and not lead players back to the correct planet.
- Fixed an issue where players with corrupt saves would be recovered but have no ship.
You can make a lot of these items with the "Quicksilver Synthesis Bot". Hello Games will continue to tweak No Man's Sky and even promised to add custom options for body shapes in the future.
No Man's Sky is currently available for $49.99 at retailers like Amazon or the Microsoft Store. The game also features Xbox One X enhancements.

This game has been a major flash in the pan for me. Played it hard to start with, got my top of the range A/S class star ships and freighter, built a huge base, but I've lost the urge to play it much now.
Don't get me wrong, I think it's a good game, but I've little notion to make it to the centre and have little else to play for.
