No Man's Sky is always crashing.

Honored Guest

I pre-ordered my Quest 3 (512GB) when it released. I always wanted to play No Man's Sky on it. No Man's Sky has been crashing repeatedly on my headset. I have played Asgard's Wrath using Oculus' software and No Man's Sky is working on my PC perfectly fine. I have a high-end PC (AMD Ryzen 7 7800X3D, Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090, 64GB DDR5 RAM and 6TB of SSD storage in total). I can't believe why it has been crashing. I have also tried changing the SteamVR's version to beta to check it out and it still crashes. Is there any fix to this? I haven't tested other Steam games because No Man's Sky not working made me give up on gaming in my headset. I'm really upset because I'm missing out a lot of my gaming in VR. Please help me out.


Solutions I have tried so far:
- Changing SteamVR's version to Beta
- Updating Oculus app's software to latest and also my headset's software to latest
- Air Link connection

Any help would be appreciated, I just want to game on my headset.

Hey @glitchybit! We can understand wanting to play any game using your Quest 3 Headset! We understand how important it is to be able to play games on your headset without it crashing. With that being said though, as this is a Steam VR game and it is not on the Meta Quest platform itself, we would not have any way to troubleshoot No Man's Sky crashing on the steam platform. The developer's for No Man's Sky may be able to assist with the crashing issues you are experiencing if you reach out to their support channels here. If you have any questions or concerns about the Meta Quest platform, please definitely let us know!
