No Man’s Sky Update 1.09 Reportedly Removes Stacking Exploit

Hello Games has released a brand new update for their indie hit. No Man’s Sky. This update should be available to download on the PS4 and PC.

The size of this download is around 733 MB on the PS4. According to early reports, the update has removed the stacking exploit however players can still use any of their existing stock after the update.

There are no full patch notes available for this update but judging from the size, it appears to be rather substantial update. In addition to removing the stacking exploit, this update also reportedly makes some minor changes including improvements to the graphics and sound.

No Man’s Sky was a critically panned game at launch. The main criticism against the game was the lack of features that were promised by the game director, Sean Murray. Among them, multiplayer was the most common complaint shared by the players.


No Man’s Sky developer Hello Games has assured that they will keep supporting the game post-launch with new updates free of cost. Since then, they have released more than half dozen updates for bug fixes and adding some features. It remains to be seen what kind of difference further updates will bring to the game.

Let us know if you have noticed any other changes in the game after installing the latest patch in the comments below.

    this guy lied about everything and there are still people who defend him what a joke of course people are mad i want my money back this game is more empty than any game i have ever played. even minecraft is a better game has way more to do. and please the animals and planets are all the same just diferent colors and stripes

    with this latest patch, on my PC is the first that I’ve noticed black chevrons identifying a star with a black hole at a distance, on the map. This feature may have been there previously, but just now is when I identified it. It certainly makes things easier to drill to the center of the universe.

    Also, I think the animals have a slightly higher spawn rate, and I’ve noticed slightly higher variety to them.

    I swear to god I am sick of hearing about people bitching about the lack of multiplayer. You wanna complain about everything that was promised not being in the game? Fine. You want multiplayer? Then stfu and go play clone of duty or eve online with all the assholes of the world. I enjoy the solitude of this game. The day nms turns multiplayer is the day I stop playing.

      With 18 quadrillion planets to explore, those few millions that expected to run into a buddy are obviously not math majors.

        Except it happened (on day one), and they couldn’t see each other.
