In No Man’s Sky: Beyond, there was a slight change to the loading screen. Below the star systems with visible names, it now includes “Progress: %”

Progress Percentage

What does this percentage refer to?

I did not see this mentioned in the patch notes, and in my efforts to figure this out, the only “progress” I am able to find is referring to progress of bug fixes.

    Best guess is that is your percentage complete for that star system for things that you scan like flora and fauna across the planets in the system.

  • @TimmyJim That’s a good theory. The next time I’m on, I’ll see if those star systems are in my list of discoveries Aug 17, 2019 at 23:58
  • hmm. I wonder if it's a global percentage then...

After playing a little while longer, the percentage has nothing to do with the star system itself. It represents how much of the game has loaded prior to loading your character.

I noticed this after the game crashed a couple of times, and forced me go back into the loading screen. The percentage starts off small, and progressively increases until the game loads.
