No Man’s Sky Holiday 2023 Expeditions and 4.46 Update Patch Notes

As we approach the end of the year, the developers of No Man’s Sky have announced a special holiday treat for their community. In a tradition that has become a much-anticipated part of the game’s calendar, No Man’s Sky will revisit the expeditions that defined 2023, giving players a fresh chance to experience these unique adventures.

This year’s community expeditions will be re-launched in new sections of the vast No Man’s Sky universe. Players will have the opportunity to re-experience these adventures, complete with the original stories and events, and the added thrill of exploring new cosmic frontiers.

Additionally, the developers have a special surprise in store: the return of the highly popular “Cartographers” expedition from 2021. The Cartographers expedition is well-loved for its unique challenges and engaging narrative, making its return a celebrated event within the community.

These expeditions offer tempting rewards for those who take part in them. The bundle includes some of the most sought-after items from various past expeditions. Among these treasures is the coveted Golden Vector starship, a fan favorite for its distinctive design and capabilities. This holiday season offers players, especially those who didn’t get a chance to earn these rewards previously, a unique opportunity to add these exclusive items to their collections.
