Despite being an insulting empty playground at launch thanks to offering nothing more than an endless desert, No Man's Sky has gone on to achieve one of the greatest comebacks thanks to developer Hello Games' commitment.

Unfortunately, the game's crème de la crème update, Beyond, is impossible to properly appreciate in its current state thanks to it constantly crashing on PS4.

Kotaku has been told that a fix is cooking in the oven, but - fortunately enough - there's a temporary solution that players can effortlessly implement themselves.

As mentioned over on Reddit, the error code most people are being slapped in the face with is CE-34878-0.

In the same Reddit post, numerous users report that turning off ambient multiplayer greatly helped. This'll allow you to still venture to the Anomaly, but you won't be able to see other players.

Provided this is a temporary solution you're cool with, you simply need to head into Network and switch multiplayer from on to off.

It's undeniably frustrating that the biggest and most exciting update for No Man's Sky is bogged down by frequent crashes, but hopefully this temporary solution will allow you to briefly escape the mundaneness of reality to enjoy the wonder of space.
