Home » Fix Astroneer crashes by downloading its latest update

Astroneer is one of the most popular games of the moment. In it, you’ll explore distant worlds to extract valuable resources. The game’s action takes place during the 25th cen25th-centurysh, an era when everybody’s goal is to explore the frontiers of outer space and find rare resources. Players can trade the resources they find or craft them into various tools and industrial buildings.

As we already reported a few days ago, Astroneer is affected by many technical issues. However, this is not a surprise since the game is still a work in progress.

The good news is that System Era Softworks recently rolled out an update that fixes many Astroneer bugs. This patch fixes 10 different crash issues, various gamepad and controller issues, and more.
