Hello Games has now released the newest No Man’s Sky Leviathan Expedition update.
No Man’s Sky Leviathan Expedition Update
The No Man’s Sky Leviathan Expedition Update introduces the seventh expedition, Leviathan. According to Founder Sean Murray, this new expedition is quite different that the previous ones, which gives the game a somewhat roguelike experience.
Expedition 7 is quite a mysterious puzzle for the crew. Players are now challenged to escape a mysterious time-loop curse and even Nada and Polo do not know the cause. They do have a clue that suggests there is a link to this curse, a giant space creature called The Leviathan.
In this expedition, death is in every corner. Each death will have some individual progress reset, but each attempt will count towards Specialist Polo’s research into the time-loop. If the research gets completed, everyone involved might just get out of this hellish curse.
After every death, this will give an opportunity to Polo’s efforts with a procedurally-generated loadout. This will improve its quality as the community effort builds.
No Man’s Sky Leviathan Expedition Update Rewards
There are also some nice rewards to acquire after completing the Leviathan expedition. Some of them are the Whalestalker Cloak, a mini Organic Frigate for the base, and a Temporal Starship Trail. Other items can be acquired along the way. The best reward for all that work is a whole-new organic frigate.
How Long is the Leviathan Expedition?
The Leviathan Expedition is now available and will run for approximately six weeks.

3.90 Patch Notes
Expedition Seven, the Leviathan, will begin shortly.
This expedition takes players on a narrative-driven roguelike adventure to break a time-loop curse, where each death means a reset of the loop.
Players can work together to assist Specialist Polo as they research the loop, increasing the quality of rewards and upgrades for each new iteration.
Rewards include new posters; a Whalestalker Cloak; a juvenile cosmic leviathan suitable for construction within a base; and a chance to come face to face with the fully-grown Leviathan itself…
