Yeah it's kinda crazy it feels like a relaunch/rework of the game. Instead of a 0.1 change.

Update is downloading on my PS4 right now. 7.232GB.

Shame I have to go back to work for 4 hours after lunch before I can come and play it.

1.03 update

Bizarre. It must mean something? Perhaps the effects are only noticeable over a long period of time? But that can't be right.

So weird.

Edit: regardless, it apparently has barely any impact on gameplay based on what people have said about Elite.

Umm, this looks kinda amazing. I've been looking for a game that I can just smoke and chill with and NMS finally seems to have gotten its shit together so I'm very interested.

Now, should I pick this up on PS4 Pro or PC? Are there any platform-specific problems on either? Just want to pick up the definitive version with the least known bugs.

NMS was ALWAYS good for smoke and chill. Now it's just likely a million times better for it!

PC is a bit of a crapshoot. If it works it apparently works well but it's pretty processor intensive and maybe not optimised amazingly.

PS4 vanilla is decent - I can't speak for PS4 Pro though.

HDR support is there. PS4Pro users get a higer res and can toggle between higher FPS or the higher res. It's getting the upgraded textures.

I'm only on my 80 download internet here too, back home I have 250 download so it'd be done by now probably.

And in general, a part of the survival loop I enjoy was after to choose how long to 'stay out there' for or when to cut my risk and start heading back...

Being able just call my ship anymore is gonna kinda hurt that, so not sure I personally like the change.

That said... I'm kinda 'past' that anyhow now. My stockpiles large enough I usually never worry about shields much anymore anyhow so probably won't really hurt my experience much, and it sounds like there will plenty of new scary ways to almost die with the new missions or dogfighting content.

Thank you! Downloading now. It's up in the US.

So it's either 30fps with HDR or 60fps with no HDR?

I believe 4k is where you sacrifice 60fps. 4k will be unlocked framerate, but 1080p still does HDR isn't it? and 1080p is locked 60fps.

We can finally adjust FOV too.

Thanks dude, hoping to hear some feedback from other PS4 Pro users in the coming days. My CPU is a bit old (i7 3770 @ stock) so I'm leaning towards PS4 at the moment.

Do I need to make a new save from getting all the new biomes and such? Mind you my save is from vanila NMS.

Also did they added a way to put more slots on a ship? I loved the looks of my ships so I never upgraded it.

Really thinking about getting it digitial. I enyojed vanilla version but sold it because they offered me good money with a PS4 Pro deal and I felt like I already saw it almost everything.
