Hello Games has announced No Man’s Sky Expeditions. A new update that adds several upgrades to the game. These upgrades all revolve around different missions that players can complete together with friends. The update is now available.
The main feature from Expeditions is a new mode that adds ‘Rendezvous Planets.’ These are worlds where players all start in the same place and can go on Expeditions together. These Expeditions can be mapped out via a new Expedition Planner menu. That way, the players keep keeping the same goal in mind. Expeditions all consist of different phases, and they are divided into challenges. Hello Games indicates that it is up to the player to see in which order everything is completed. In this way, the freedom that the game offers remains intact.
Players work together with a group to unlock missions. This is done by completing milestones or when the community unlocks new rewards.
Building together is an important feature in Expeditions, but the update also adds quite a few quality life improvements. Furthermore, a new jetpack is available, and it will be possible to summon ‘walkers.’ The UI has been updated and is now available in 4K with colorblind support. Furthermore, Twitch Drop has been added, a ping system, and an improved chat.
