The No Man’s Sky devs are clearly working overtime to fix their "disastrous" launch, as they already have a new patch that addresses everything from stuttering to better hardware support. Any of you playing already and regret not waiting before throwing down $60?

The patch features improved support for AMD CPUs, fixes for framerate stuttering, setting the max frames-per-second to 30 or 60 not working, mouse jittering, and crashes that occurred after Alt+tabbing out of the game. The game will now also notify you if you are running the game with an unsupported graphics card and disable the Gsync feature by default, which was causing some technical problems. Players can access the patch now by right-clicking on the game in their stream library, going to the "Properties" option, selecting the "Betas" tab, typing in the code "3xperimental" in the field provided, then selecting the new option that appears in the drop-down menu. They can also wait for the patch to hit for everyone "early next week," according to Hello Games.
