No Man’s Sky PC patch 1.13 released

No Man's Sky

The attempted rehabilitation of No Man’s Sky continues today, with the release of patch 1.13 on PC. This one brings some audio fixes, and (specifically for the PC) enables warping on the Steam controller.

Other changes include a fix for the issue that turned your character into the incredible shrinking man, changes to the size of space battles (they can be larger now), and removing an instantaneous death loop from Survival Mode. If you saved at 1 health with no hazard protection, you were in big trouble. Now, you’ll still be “on the verge of death” when you load in, but will have a chance to do something about it.

Here’s the changelog for No Man’s Sky 1.13.

  • Fixed a bug that would make the player character small.
  • Space battles will now vary in size more and players should see bigger battles.
  • Fixed the instantaneous death loop that could occur in survival mode if you saved with 1 health and no hazard protection. You will still be on the verge of death when you load in, but it won’t happen instantaneously.
  • Fix for steam controller not being able to warp.
  • Removed up, down, left, right as quick menu navigation keys to allow left handed players to move while using the quick menu.
