No Man's Sky Expedition Seven: Leviathan has just been released for free on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox, which means that players have access to a bunch of new content. This includes a new community goal, a new narrative, a roguelike mechanic, an organic frigate reward, a temporal starship trail, the Leviathan expedition, and most important of all, space whales. Star Wars was right after all.
What can I expect from No Man's Sky: Leviathan Expedition?
The Leviathan Expedition traps Travelers inside a time loop, which will give players some roguelike play. Difficulty is tuned to survival-mode settings, and if they die the time loop is reset. As players explore the loop they'll receive Memory Fragments, which are lost fragments of previous loops. They're procedurally generated (like much of No Man's Sky), so each reset could play out very differently. To break the loop, players can help Specialist Polo to research the loop, and the more Travelers that help in the research, the stronger the Memory Fragments become. This means, better upgrades, more inventory space, and stronger Multi-Tools and starships.
The story involves players on the trail of previous iterations of the loop. Players will investigate crash sites, absorb memories, and work together to escape the curse of the loop. All the memories lead toward an ancient space creature known as The Leviathan. The Expedition will run for six weeks, so they have a month and a half to escape the loop.
Some issues have also been fixed, including a GPU crash on the PlayStation 4. There's also been significant memory optimization for the Xbox Series S, and Solar-Class starships now display their sails on the inventory page.
If you're into merchandise, there's a custom set of playing cards available, which have been designed by a member of the community. If this sounds right up your alley, you can get them here.
