Astroneer PS4 update 1.38 is now available for download. According to the official Astroneer 1.38 patch notes, the latest update added new changes, bug fixes, and various balancing. Apart from this, Astroneer version 1.38 also includes stability fixes. The game is now available for Switch players.
Previously, a big Automation update added new switches, new platforms, updated modules, and more. Unfortunately, many players are still experiencing several issues. Today’s Astroneer version 1.38 will fix a few of these issues. Check out more details below.
This update coincides with the release of Astroneer for Nintendo Switch and serves as its Day One patch. Physical copies of Astroneer contain content up through Update 19; players will need to connect and download this update to also receive any changes from the intervening releases.
“Space Snails” are now a part of the universe of Astroneer. Players have the opportunity to gain these unique and highly adaptable creatures as permanent companions that also give benefits to their caretakers.
Each Galastropod loves treats and will become extra happy and energized when fed. While a Galastropod is full, players receive a unique benefit to aid in their adventures. Galastropods also have favorite foods which will extend the duration of their benefit when fed.
Begin a new adventure to retrieve unique Galastropoda specimens and investigate the mystery behind their appearance.
* ##### Update-Specific Intro Cinematic
We’ve added a new cinematic that will display the first time players start the game after receiving this update. This doesn’t replace the original intro cinematic for brand new players, which will still play their first time.
* ##### New Missions
Fresh content has been added to the early game to launch players on a journey of snail discovery across the solar system!
Certain new missions now have required items and/or permanent rewards. Both of these allow players to respawn them at the nearest landing pad for their convenience (or if they’ve misplaced them). Mission items are limited to a single item per save, while permanent rewards are available as a single item per player.
Galastropods are immediately available for access in Creative Mode via the Catalog in the “Discoveries” tab (second from the right).

Players logging in during a specific Anniversary time frame will get it for free – watch our socials for more details (Twitter, Discord, etc.)!

A wide variety of performance efforts have been undertaken to support the Switch release and to generally improve player experience for every platform. Players should notice improved loading times, especially on consoles.
We’ve literally moved the heavens to fix the issue some players experience which cause them to get “stuck” at seemingly random points while moving. This fix only applies to new saves for the time being; old saves should be unaffected.
All hazardous flora has been updated to produce multiple seeds to allow for easier cultivation. Seed growth times have also been reduced (to feed your hungry snails!)
Planets have a larger collision volume when selecting them from solar system view, which should make them easier to select, especially when using a controller
