The new update is out for PC and PS4.

New save system

  • You will now be presented with 5 save-game slots (each of which can be used for any game mode). Your existing saves will be mapped into these slots

  • There are now two sub-slots for each save-game – one for automatic saves and one for manual saves.
    • Automatic saves occur when exiting your ship, dying, purchasing a Freighter or claiming a base
    • Manual saves occur when interacting with a save point (these can be built from the build menu), or a beacon found on planet surfaces
  • Starting a new game with no existing saves will take you directly to mode select

If you experience any problems with the new save system, be sure to let us know!
