"Potentially" game braking glitch:

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2016- ... ing-glitch

Basically if you've redeemed your pre order ship with Hyperdrive before complete ting the hyperdrive tutorial they are saying it won't appear again and you are hyperdrive-less.

After a bit more reading it seemed only a handful had this issue. So desperate for a ship upgrade i took the plunge and bought one. Straight after I received an Incoming Beacon on a nearby planet. The contact there gave me the blueprint. After acquiring what I needed for the hyperdrive I received another Incoming Beqcon and received information regarding Warp Cells.

So for me all worked fine and I believe @judoblo has at least got the blueprint so far too.

Up to the individual if they risk it or not but I would say it should be fine. My guess is those with issues ignored or missed the Beacons.

Yep all fine here. Got the hyperdrive "quest" as soon as I switched ships. Perhaps the people who are having the issue have already used the hyperdrive on their preorder shop and that's what messes did up? Or its just been blown out of proportion?

It won't improve what you already have most likely. But to get rid of the annoying messages I'd go to redeem then decline myself.

Did you enter the codes off your ticket when you got the disc ? Even digital people got codes. Unless you buy it after release day that is. If you aint entered the codes you won't see the redeem message.

ISSUES

We’re tracking a number of issues, bugs and crashes that players are reporting, and working to resolve as soon as possible.

The number of people players, and length of average play session, has been far more than our small team could have anticipated. That said, we’re working quickly to adapt.

We sincerely apologise to anyone affected in the meantime.

Here are some things to be aware of:
We’ve brought a new QA team on board today (larger than the entire Hello Games team!). This will complement the existing Sony QA team.
We are working on fixes for the most critical issues, which will be in a patch in the near future.
We will be moving to a ticketed support system next week, and have hired someone to manage this starting Monday.
Some information will be posted in the Sony forums here http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/ ... bd-p/22190
Or contact Hello Games here http://www.no-mans-sky.com/support/

Workarounds
Here are some workarounds for some known issues:
If you believe you are stuck, or can’t reach your ship, be aware you can jetpack forever whilst pushing against any surface
If you have made a mistake – you can revert to any of your two previous saves in the Options Menu
If you have left your ship somewhere inaccessible, you will be able to summon it from landing pads or beacons found at most buildings or points of interest (marked by question marks)

It has been reported that some players have not received a pre-order bonus. In most cases so far, the player has either not redeemed their bonus correctly from the PS store or from the Options Menu. Also sometimes players have received the bonus, but the name displayed in-game was incorrect. The Alpha Vector ship is named Domanish S84 in-game, and (in the US) the Rezosu AZ65 is named Final Shadow XIV in game.

It has been reported that using the pre-order bonus ship will leave some players stranded, if they purchase or transfer to a new ship that does not have a hyperdrive (if done very early in game). In most cases the player is actually able to continue (107 of the 135 reports emailed so far). The game already detects the player needs a hyperdrive and directs them to a nearby NPC who will give the player the hyperdrive they need. Some other players were able to resolve this issue by restarting their console.

Hopefully this helps some players. If you still are having issues, please contact Hello Games support here:
mailto:support@hellogames.co.uk

For those this does not help, please know we are working to resolve these issues as soon as possible in a patch. This will include crash fixes also.

Thank you,
Sean
