Both the PS4 and PC versions have received multiple patches to improve stability since launch. The PS4 version in particular had a massive, day-one patch that significantly changed how the game plays. The PC version was sort of a mess at launch, and has already received multiple stability and feature patches. To its credit, Hello Games has acknowledged these issues, and has apparently been working on fixing them since the game's debut.
Patch 1.04 fixes 75% of crash issues for PS4 was released Friday. Patch 1.05 fixes 87% of crash issues for PS4 was released Sunday— Hello Games (@hellogames) August 24, 2016
Patch 1.06 fixes 90% of crash issues for PS4 is in testing and will release this week— Hello Games (@hellogames) August 24, 2016
We obviously won’t stop until these issues are 100% resolved. Also these patches contain other fixes and improvements too. Thanks all— Hello Games (@hellogames) August 24, 2016
You can read the full patch notes for the Steam and GOG versions here. While No Man's Sky had a rough start, it sounds like Hello Games is willing to keep working to make its universe into something it can be proud of. Hopefully, it's not a case of too little, too late, as many players seem to have moved on already.
