No Man’s Sky just got a little bit better. The developer of the game, Hello Games, just released Patch 3.40 that brings the game’s second expedition called Beachhead. The first expedition was released last month and you can read the details here.

The patch is now live on every platform and players can start enjoying Beachhead as soon as they complete their download. The update also added a new class of upgrade modules for the Launch Thrusters starship.

As you would expect, the patch fixed several existing issues in the game, including crashes related to saving base data and terrain tessellation. An Xbox-only crash that occurred due to memory management has also been addressed.

You can read about the rest of the changes below.

No Man’s Sky has made a great comeback. The 2016 game received a lukewarm reception at launch with many criticisms focused on missing features and lack of content. Thankfully, the developer didn’t abandon the game and supported it with multiple updates for several years. But should players really have to wait for years after the game’s release to enjoy it?

So what do you think? Are you excited about the new expedition? What do you think about the comeback of No Man’s Sky? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
