    As promised, Hello Games has now released a new patch for No Man's Sky on PC. While the full patch notes have not yet been released, director Sean Murray wrote on Twitter that the update, available now on Steam and GOG, adds support for "more hardware" and also improves frame rate for lower-spec computers.
    A patch for the PlayStation 4 version is also on the way. According to Murray, it will improve stability and "lots more." Patch notes for the console update have also not yet been shared, but the update has been submitted to Sony and should be released "very soon," Murray said.
    The developer also wrote on Twitter that "less than one percent" of players have reported issues, though this is presumably only counting people who have filed official support tickets. Whatever the case, Murray said, "We're going to resolve roughly 70% of them this week" with the patches.
    While a sales number for No Man's Sky has not been announced, Murray suggested that even 1 percent of players is a big number. "It's pretty crazy for us how many people are playing. And how large a number even 1% of that user base is," he said.

    Murray has talked about adding new content like "the ability to build bases and own giant space freighters." He has also teased that major-sounding new features could come in the future.
    "If you hoped for things like pvp multiplayer or city building, piloting freighters, or building civilizations… that isn't what NMS is," he said. "Over time it might become some of those things through updates."
    Some updates will be free, while others could cost money. Murray recently said he was "perhaps naive" to suggest that No Man's Sky would only have free updates.
