Today's No Man's Sky Xbox One patch fixes corrupt saves

No Man's Sky finally launched on Xbox One this week, 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. This usually happened when items were partially repaired. Luckily, Hello Games was able to identify the problem and quickly issue a patch. If you own No Man's Sky on Xbox One, you can now download a roughly 4 GB update which contains a number of fixes. The patch has already been released for PC and PlayStation 4.

Some of the major problems fixed with this patch are listed below. For the complete patch notes, you can visit the developer's website.

  • Fixed an issue where players who saved after repairing some items would be unable to load that save.
  • Fixed numerous crashes caused by memory corruption, memory leaks, the animation system, and much more.
  • Fixed an issue where warping in multiplayer could cause players to spawn on a planet.
  • Fixed an issue where the cockpit would continually open and close.
  • Added a tutorial mission to guide players through the restoration of their old base.
  • Improved the mapping of old substances to new substances during the save upgrade.

It's great to see No Man's Sky quickly address this game-breaking bug. Hopefully it'll be smooth sailing from here on out.
