Salvation! We are happy to announce that today we are launching Expeditions, a major update for No Man’s Sky, on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and PlayStation VR.
It’s only been six weeks since we released our previous Companions update. It introduced pets, and we loved watching PlayStation gamers adopt, ride, and bond with a wide variety of weird and wonderful creatures they find in the universe. On the planet, in the Nexus or on a community mission, meeting and traveling with other travelers is now just as much like meeting their faithful sidekicks. And these fellow creatures are going to be great company for what we have coming up today in Expeditions.
The Expeditions update introduces an all-new game mode, which will change with each season. For the first time, we’ll be starting all players together on the same planet and launching them on a Community Expedition. With the Expedition Planner, travelers can complete a series of milestones, each bringing new challenges… some are simple, others that only the most dedicated will reach. Milestones achieved unlock awesome mission fixes to display and a host of new content accessible in all saves.
If you are a returning gamer looking for a fresh start, a seasoned explorer looking to rediscover the dread of your early moments in No Man’s Sky, or a new player looking to participate in a huge community experience – then Expeditions should be an option. great place to jump in.
An alternative to our four existing modes Normal, Creative, Survival, and Permadeath, it begins a series of community-driven seasonal adventures and will expand, grow, and surprise as the seasons go by.
In the coming weeks, completing exploration objectives will unlock unique rewards that players can claim in other game modes. Rewards such as new jetpack, exclusive ship, weapon, title are now available … And much more. Completing each mission will also unlock one of the many new iconic mission patches for you to show off.
New Expeditions immerse players in the game with a collection of technologies, customizations, new ships and weapons, offering a glimpse into some of the wild possibilities of the universe. At the end of the season, existing expeditions will be converted to normal mode saves allowing the game to continue.
Expeditions offers a whole new way to explore the universe together, which will grow and develop just like No Man’s Sky.
Our journey continues.
