A new update has been released for Dead Star on PS4. The new update, version 1.05, brings a fair few changes, balances, tweaks and other features to the multilayer space shooter.
It’s not a massive patch, thankfully, and it’ll only take up 189MB of precious hard drive space. The full patch notes are below.
