Adrift Patch 4.72

Hello everyone,

Thank you to everyone playing the No Man’s Sky Expedition: Adrift, especially those taking the time to report any issues they encounter via Zendesk or console crash reporting.

We are listening closely to your feedback, and have identified and resolved a number of issues. These fixes are included in patch 4.72, which is now live on Steam and will be coming to other platforms as soon as possible.


Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue that prevented the Iron Vulture engine effects from activating.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented the ‘previous expedition’ label from showing on the save select screen whilst another expedition was active.
  • Fixed an issue that caused two Adrift milestones to both award Nutrient Processor plans.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented players from claiming the Ship of the Damned if they had permanently declined the freighter rewarded by an earlier milestone in the Adrift expedition.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented the claiming of some expedition milestones if one of the rewards upgraded a ship or multitool, but the current item was already at S-Class.
  • Fixed an issue that caused ships to be invisible in some planetary storms.
  • Fixed a minor issue related to planetary tornadoes.
  • Fixed a number of minor text issues.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the Horizon Omega and Prime Vector pre-order ships to be interpreted as freighters, causing a crash shortly after claiming them.
  • Fixed an Xbox-specific multiplayer crash.


We will continue to release patches as issues are identified and resolved. If you experience any issues, let us know by submitting a bug report.

Thank you,
Hello Games
