No Man's Sky Summary
The controversy surrounding No Man's Sky just keeps getting bigger without ever showing signs of being quelled. Following the release of the title last month, the record-breaking sales of the title quickly led to a very vocal witch-hunt of sorts with a large chunk of its players - and press - complaining of how the final game barely matched up to what was promised by the company.
And these complains are now targeting the Hello Games in more ways than angry tweets. A Reddit user by the name of AzzerUK detailed through a post to the game's subreddit exactly how and why he decided to take part in the string of complaints leading to the UK's Advertising Standards Authority launching a full-blown investigation into No Man's Sky's Steam Page.
By now, we all know that discovering the universe in No Man's Sky might not be everything it's cracked up to be. At the very least it's not quite as good as the amazing idea we were sold. Even Shuhei Yoshida, president of Sony's Worldwide Studios, admitted recently that though he enjoys the game, public relations and press did not do the game any favors.
No Man's Sky has been out for a bit now and it got off to a rocky start. It's a big game with big ambitions and a big universe to try to encompass everything after all. That said, Hello Games isn't sitting on its heels letting problems be problems. They've released several patches already and have worked tirelessly to ensure that the game runs the way it ought to.
Of course, patching a game as popular and extensive as No Man's Sky takes a lot of work and once one thing gets fixed, another may just as well break as a result. Regardless, we're here to keep you up to date on what's happening. Below, you'll find a list of each of the patches the PC version of No Man's Sky has received as well as a break down of what they resolved, added to, or removed from the game.
The launch of No Man’s Sky launch has been a bit rocky, to say the least, bringing a bunch of criticism that ranges from fair to hyperbolic. One of the biggest criticisms has been of the PC version, which despite the game’s apparently limited technical demands hasn’t been performing well. A new patch released this week aiming to address these issues.
No Man's Sky hit the market recently and by many accounts, while it delivers the vast universe to explore that was promised, it's also a bit of a repetitive grind fest.

We've brought a few of our favorties together on GameWatcher and are putting the spotlight on two new particularly enjoyable mods that have recently come out.
