No Man’s Sky Expeditions Set to Run Again Over the Holiday Season, Another Chance to Earn the Normandy from Mass Effect

PS4 & PS5

Expeditions have been a popular addition to No Man’s Sky in 2021, so much so that developer Hello Games was taken aback by their success. They’re also aware that a lot of people missed out on some of the Expedition rewards as they didn’t have time to play them. As such, Expeditions will make a return over the holiday season to give players another chance at earning rewards like the Normandy from Mass Effect.

Beginning today, players will get a chance to play all four of the previous Expeditions. Each will run for a period of two weeks and have been adjusted to account for the shorter window of time. For those wanting to replay them, they also have a new starting planet and a new route, meaning it will seem like a fresh experience. The Expeditions can be started by choosing Community Expedition from the mode select screen. The schedule is as follows:

November 24 – December 7

  • Expedition 1 (Pioneers)

December 7 – December 21

  • Expedition 2 (Beachhead/Normandy)

December 22 – January 4

  • Expedition 3 (Cartographers)

January 5 – January 19

  • Expedition 4 (Emergence)

As well as the start of the Expedition reruns, today also saw the release of a small update with more bug fixes and gameplay improvements. The full list of tweaks can be seen below:
