No Man’s Sky now has weekly events with sweet cosmetic rewards


No Man’s Sky really turned things around with its massive Next update, which completely overhauled its universe into something that more closely resembles the lofty goals of the original open-galaxy vision. The huge content drop also brought back swathes of lapsed players eager to check out the multiplayer or reworked systems – and now there’s even more reason to return with the advent of weekly events.

In its latest Developer Update blog post, Hello Games explains the rollout of the first season, which consists of eight missions that each last for a week, and can be found in the new Galactic Atlas website mapping out the Euclid Galaxy. This week’s inaugural assignment is a request from Specialist Polo, which will go out to all explorers who’ve completed the first Space Anomaly mission. “Polo’s advanced boundary monitoring equipment has located a previously undetected iteration of the universe and they urgently need explorers to examine and explore this glitch in reality,” says Hello Games.
