No Man’s Sky was released five years ago, and although it had a rough launch, the proud folks at Hello Games have made huge strides over the years. With constant content updates and hotfixes, the game is as stable as it can be. But even with those, developers are showing no signs of stopping. 

That said, Patch 3.73 has been deployed that allows the base computer to be moved. Just like other small updates, there are bug fixes in it as well.

Relive the Expedition

The Expeditions update has breathed a new life into the game, where you can travel with other people on a shared journey. But because of their limited-time nature, the devs understand that some people may have missed a few. Do not worry though, previous expeditions are coming back starting today until early next year.

Here is a rundown of the schedule:

  • Expedition 1 (Pioneers): November 24 to December 7
  • Expedition 2 (Beachhead/Normandy): December 8 to December 21
  • Expedition 3 (Cartographers): December 22 to January 4
  • Expedition 4 (Emergence): January 5 to January 19
