No Man's Sky's Beyond update has rejuvenated the colourful space exploration title, acting as a sort of re-launch. Among many other things, the game-changing expansion added in support for PlayStation VR, a feature many players had been asking for since launch. While the VR mode is well implemented, it does significantly reduce the quality of the visual presentation. However, that could be about to change.
Hello Games posted a huge update to Steam, detailing the next phase of its "experimental branch" -- in other words, allowing early access to future updates before they're released properly. Among the myriad improvements listed, the studio makes the following two points regarding PSVR:
- Introduced a number of PC VR and PSVR rendering optimisations.
- Significantly improved image quality in PSVR: reduced blurriness caused by TAA jitter and fixed low-quality terrain/atmosphere jaggies.
So, in the near future, No Man's Sky will receive an update that will vastly improve how the game looks in PSVR. It's now just a matter of when; hopefully it won't be too long before the patch becomes available to download.
