In the same vein as No Man’s Sky’s 1.32 update that released less than a week ago, this latest round of fixes aims to further stabilize the title’s free Atlas Rises expansion that went live earlier this month. However, while update 1.32 focused on critical issues with saves and story progression, what we have today is much more targeted and granular. We’re interested to see how scanning has improved since its lackluster post-launch implementation, but even that will only offer a slightly new flavor to an experience that many new and returning players are already enjoying. Given the trend of past No Man’s Sky updates, version 1.33 could very well be the last substantial adjustment we’ll see for quite some time. With both major and minor shortcomings mostly sorted out, the next phase is waiting for the next radical overhaul to this rejuvenated infinite universe.

Following one of the rockiest launches in gaming history, No Man’s Sky’s Atlas Rises expansion and its various patches have proven that Hello Games is still just as committed to this game today as when it was first revealed in late 2013. While many features, like its very basic multiplayer, remain unfinished, we expect expanded options in the months ahead.

No Man’s Sky is available now on PS4 and PC.
