No Man's Sky Next Patch 1.51 Fixes a Lot of Bugs

No Man's Sky Next gets its first bug patch.

No Man’s Sky Next came out earlier this week along with a massive patch which added multiplayer, expanded base building, and much, much more to the game. A new patch was released yesterday to clean up some of the bugs and issues caused by the massive overhaul.
