The No Man’s Sky website also delves into the game’s new mode, which features community-based mechanics and gameplay:

“Introducing a whole new game mode: Expeditions. Each of these events starts from a fixed point in the universe, bringing the whole community of travellers together to embark on a shared journey.

“Each expedition is structured around a series of Milestones. Complete these unique exploration goals in any order as you earn rewards, meet up with fellow travellers, and experiment with new ways of playing No Man’s Sky.

“Each Expedition phase is made up of milestones. These challenges, ranging from the simple to the highly challenging, can be completed in any order.

“Milestones are open-ended, and each one is a chance to explore a different aspect of No Man’s Sky. Every completed milestone brings a reward to assist you in your journey.”

The Galactic Expeditions update also comes with a bunch of quality of life improvements, including changes to the game’s UI and HUD.

The game’s HUD has been overhauled and given a more modern look and has also been scaled to 4K. Other improvements include designed mission markers and new bespoke markers for planetary items.

No Man’s Sky has come a long way since 2016, so this new update is sure to make the experience almost unrecognisable. More information on the update can be found on the No Man’s Sky Offical site.
