No Man’s Sky Update 1.71 Addresses Issues Caused by The Abyss Update

No Man’s Sky received a significant update towards the end of last month, The Abyss update finally allowed players to explore the underwater world of different planets. Not only that, it brought with it numerous new vehicles, animals, gameplay features, as well as a new single-player campaign titled The Dreams of the Deep.

Recently, Hello Games’ founder Sean Murray went on the game’s official website and released update 1.71 patch notes, accompanied by a short note promising “further strides” to come before the year ends. Update 1.71 mainly focuses on addressing issues in The Abyss update, and there were a few considering the size and number of new additions to the game. It focuses on fixing NPC dialogue where players were unable to receive a reward if their inventory is full, so the dialogue just kept resetting. In addition to that, it disabled gestures while climbing ladders, fixed reported crashes, improved underwater sound effects according to feedback, in addition to other miscellaneous fixes and enhancements.

Development Update

Update 1.71 is now released to all platforms, and the full patch notes are available to read below. It is hard to believe it is already November – this has been such an intense, productive, and emotional year for No Man’s Sky – and there are further strides to take in our journey before 2018 is out. Thanks for being here with us, and for all your encouraging messages of support. We are listening.

Thank you so much,
