Oddly enough, Hello Games has not released any patch notes just yet, even Experimental notes, which we usually get. Over on the game’s subreddit, some people have chimed in on what they have noticed, with Reddit member o0CYV3R0o posting:

That’s all we know for now. Once Hello Games releases the official patch notes, we’ll be sure to update the post. If you spot any gameplay-related or technical changes, please let us know what you find down in the comments.

In other No Man’s Sky news, China-based company Tencent is publishing a game titled “Our Planet” that will look very familiar for No Man’s Sky players.
