No Man’s Sky Beyond’s release earlier this month added a huge volume of new content to the game, including much-requested VR support. Today, developer Hello Games is rolling out a new PC-centric patch that optimizes the game’s performance and streamlines VR functionality.
Among the notes that PC fans will be happy to see, in particular, is improved stability. Sean Murray describes the latest patch as bringing “significant performance improvements.”
Beyond Patch 2.09.2 is expected to come to other platforms moving forward, but so far it’s just for PC. You can see the full patch notes below:
- Introduced a number of PC-specific VR optimisations.
- Improved VR-specific anti-aliasing.
- Reduced graphics memory usage to improve stability.
- Fixed an issue where control pads did not rumble on PC.
- Fixed an issue where transferring valuable treasures (such as ancient bones) to other players would result in an invalid product.
- Fixed an issue where Shutter Doors had incorrect icons in the build menu.
- Fixed an issue where Gek players would float when sitting on the ground.
- Added a resource message when dismantling base parts.
- Fixed an issue that could cause an infinite number of creature pellets to spawn in Creative Mode.
- Fixed a memory leak related to starships and Exocraft.
- When in VR, removed a number of settings that have no effect in VR.
Today’s No Man’s Sky Beyond patch follows hot on the heels of 2.09 and 2.09.1, which were released on the same day last week.
