[Updated] No Man's Sky 'Endurance update still not available on Xbox' issue leaves many disappointed

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on July 21, 2022) follows:

Released in August of 2016, No Man’s Sky is an open-world action survival game that uses procedural generation to generate alien species, flora and fauna, and unique ecosystems and features over 18 quintillion planets.

Developed and published by Hello Games, No Man’s Sky received mixed reviews soon after its launch.


But thanks to the developers constantly dishing out updates and adding several new features, people have changed their mind with the title now having mostly positive reviews on Steam.

However, in the last few months, players have faced problems like blurry or poor textures and the game crashing on PlayStation and Xbox after the Leviathan update.

That said, Xbox players are reporting they are unable to download No Man’s Sky Endurance update. This is really weird since according to the Xbox news page, it should be available as of yesterday (1,2,3,4,5).

Many are furious, confused, and wondering why they cannot download the latest version. Restarting the game, reinstalling the Xbox app on PC, and restarting the system seems to be doing nothing to help fix the issue.


@Xbox @Microsoft @XboxSupport For those of us who bought @NoMansSky (not just playing thru GamePass), if you’re going to refuse to release updates to the game then please refund our money. WE paid for the game and YOU refuse to deliver it. Refund.

Xbox update not working. So i play on pc but using the xbox app, i dont know why but nms isnt updating for me even tho the xbox page says that the updates out, please help i really wanna play the new update

Unluckily, Microsoft is yet to clarify why No Man’s Sky Endurance update is not available on the Xbox. Some say updates on the Xbox are often late because of the verification process.

Yeah.. people say alot of things really. This is an issue on microsofts end, they have to go through a verification process of all the files. Dont think anyone realistically can give you an estimate on this

We hope the developers soon release the No Man’s Sky Endurance update for Xbox so players can enjoy the game.

If and when they do, we will be updating this space with relevant information so make sure you stay tuned to PiunikaWeb.
