No Man's Sky Fractal Update

No Man's Sky may not be a gift (we gotta pay for it, one way or the other) but it certainly keeps on giving. The game just received another large update, the Fractal Update

The update, numbered 4.1, introduces PlayStation VR2 support and marks the arrival of Nexus Missions on the recently-released Nintendo Switch port.

If you got the new PlayStation VR2 you can expect an improved experience compared to the original PlayStation VR, including higher quality textures, improved particle rendering, terrain tessellation effects, increased planetary details, increased draw distances, and support for or AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution 2.0. 

That being said, if you enjoy the game in virtual reality, the experience has been improved across the board, regardless of platform. On the other hand, dynamic resolution scaling has been added on PS5.

Options have been tweaked to be clearer and new accessibility features have been added. New effects have also been implemented to improve the ambiance around ancient portals, plaques, and monoliths, alongside new smoke and fog around abandoned planetary structures and crashed freighters.

We're also getting quality-of-life improvements like the ability to select our active hand, Quick Charge to quickly refuel base equipment, and more.

Three additional slots have been added to our starship fleet, bringing the total to 12 from 9. 

You can read the full update notes and watch a trailer below.

No Man's Sky is currently available for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
