No Man's Sky ship

No Man’s Sky update 1.13 adds larger space battles

No Man’s Sky is undoubtedly a contender for biggest disappointment of the year, but Hello Games has been hard at work supporting the title after launch. Now, the 1.13 update has been released, introducing bigger space battles.

“Space battles will now vary in size more and players should see bigger battles,” Hello Games wrote on the title’s website.

Otherwise, this seems to be more of a bug-fixing update, judging by the release notes, seen below.

  • 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.
  • [PC] Fix for Steam Controller not being able to warp.
  • [PC] Removed up, down, left, right as quick menu navigation keys to allow left handed players to move while using the quick menu.
  • [PC] Page Up and Page Down can now be used to navigate up and down in the quick menu.
  • Removed duplicated planets from discoveries menu.
  • Fixed an issue with redeeming promo ships in survival, which would result in the ship being spawned above the ground.
  • Fix for missing ruins underwater which could cause missions to point to nothing.
  • Added ladder climbing sounds.
  • Fixed base building prop sounds not playing when placed inside a Freighter.
  • Added sound effect for calling Freighters.
  • Added sound effect when using communication stations.
  • Fixed an issue which could affect ambient sound in Freighters.
  • Changed the sound effect when using the Terminus Teleporter.
  • Fixed some rare crashes.
