No Man’s Sky – Patch 1.34 is now available, corrects NPCs emotion animations & fixes various issues

It appears that with the release of the Atlas Rises update, Hello Games is really supporting its – previously thought dead – title. After all, No Man’s Sky has received four massive patches in just two weeks. Today, the team released a new patch for No Man’s Sky that updates its version to 1.34.

This patch fixes FoV in photo mode showing degrees as a temperature, a graphical issue where a blur effect would be applied while teleporting, as well as an issue when claiming a new base location (which caused base NPCs to stop responding).

In addition, this latest update increases the maximum number of paths which can be rendered in the galactic map, alters teleporters in space stations to allow players to teleport directly to other stations as well as to their base, adds correct emotion animations for various interactions with NPCs, and improves ordering of icons on the galactic map to more accurately indicate missions and system information.

This patch will be auto-downloaded from Steam and you can read its complete changelog below.
