No Man's Sky: Patch 3.90 Brings New Expedition, Space Whales, and New Rogue-like Gameplay Experience

A new expedition for No Man’s Sky is now available via Patch 3.90. The Leviathan is the seventh expedition in the game and will last for around six weeks.

The latest expedition for No Man’s Sky puts players in a time loop curse where every death means a reset of the loop. Different players can work together to explore the loop and recover some Memory Fragments, which are lost remnants of previous loops. What’s interesting about this is that each fragment is procedurally generated, meaning that each reset of the loop might give players a different outcome than the last, providing a rogue-like gameplay experience.

There’s a huge incentive to work with others because as more players assist Specialist Polo’s research of the loop’s peculiar manifestations, the stronger the Memory Fragments become. This translates to more inventory space, better upgrades, and stronger starships and Multi-Tools at their disposal.

Participating in this expedition grants players with some truly amazing rewards, including the Temporal Starship Trail, the Whalestalker Cloak, and the huge space giant Leviathan itself.

Aside from the new expedition, Patch 3.90 brings plenty of bug fixes. Here are the highlights:

  • Fixed a GPU crash on PlayStation 4
  • Introduced a significant memory optimization for Xbox Series S
  • Fixed an issue that could cause a mission blocker if players were sent to an outlaw station to speak with an NPC or terminal not present in outlaw systems
  • Fixed an issue that could cause doors to fail to open on derelict freighters if several slime pieces were destroyed at the same time
  • Fixed a number of issues that could occur when joining players from the friends' list page
  • Fixed an issue that could cause settlement charts to fail to find a settlement, yet still be consumed
  • Fixed a number of significant visual issues with wire placement
  • Solar-class starships now display their sails on the inventory page
  • Fixed a small number of cases where items received from dismantling products or opening other items would be placed into the wrong inventory
  • The default craft amount for Creature Pellets has been increased, allowing more pellets to be crafted for the same cost
  • Fixed an issue that could cause Traveler NPCs to manifest on outlaw stations, resulting in the badly generated text
  • Fixed an issue that could cause freighter battle missions to fail to trigger properly while the player was on the Under a Rebel Star mission
  • Fixed a UI issue that could cause the ship upgrade screen to automatically close after installing a new cargo slot, even if the player could afford to purchase additional slots

No Man’s Sky Patch 3.90 is available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
