"No Man's Sky" has released a new update for the PS4 Version that is meant to fix more of the game's glitches. Players of the game have drastically dropped since its release that was widely reported to have under-delivered.

"No Man's Sky" Game Developer Hello Games released the 1.09 update over the weekend, promising more bug fixes to the controversial game. However, Reddit users noted a feature that has been removed whic is the stacking items, Pure PlayStation reported.

Users who got the update noted the features that were added as well as those that have been removed. No patch notes are available at the moment as even the previous update notes are yet to be found.

Reddit User Undertaker59 noted that players will still be able to use the existing stacks but reported another feature that was removed. Players will no longer be able to hold down square when uploading multiple discoveries, instead pressing down the triangle will move multiple pieces of inventory but instead of being able to mass transfer items, holding down triangle will only allow transfers of one item at a time, Reddit user Blokeh commented.

Undertaker59 also noted improvements in the graphics and sound of "No Man's Sky." He claimed that the last missing fauna discovery could be found quickly with the update.

Meanwhile, the PC version of "No Man's Sky" also received an update with an experimental patch. PC gamers noted improvements in frame rates but reported the removal of the item stacking feature as well, Express has learned. The experimental patch is a minimal update at only 100 MB, while the 1.09 update for PS4 clocks in at a hefty 733 MB of bug fixes.

"No Man's Sky" has lost 90 percent of its players since its release of a seemingly broken game. Many of those who purchased the game either complained or asked for a refund. Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. President Shuhei Yoshida has turned the blame over to Sean Murray for the criticisms of the game.
