No Man’s Sky’s most recent Expedition rewards a claimable Normandy SR1 from Mass Effect

In the middle of May, No Man’s Sky launched the Beachhead Expedition, which players will recall is part of the new multiplayer-focused Expeditions mode that was added to the survival sandbox in April. This new Expedition certainly read like a fun but unremarkable goal for players to chase, but there was a surprise awaiting at the Expedition’s end: a claimable version of Mass Effect’s Normandy SR1.

The surprise addition of the iconic ship to NMS was further outlined in a developer’s blog from Sean Murray, who talked up the opportunity to work with EA and BioWare to make the crossover happen. “Like everyone else we’ve been rediscovering the amazing universe of Mass Effect through the release of the Legendary Edition. I still have chills every time I see this incredibly iconic ship warping in, and was delighted to see so many people have the same reaction,” Murray writes.

As for the immediate future of NMS, Murray promises that the devs at Hello Games have “other surprises up our sleeves” with the approach of the game’s fifth anniversary. Until then, players have until May 31st to complete the Beachhead Expedition and claim the Normandy SR1 as part of their frigate fleet.

So I guess that’s nice. I’m not interested in starting a new character, and I’m less interested in teaming with random strangers. Expeditions apparently require doing both. So since there doesn’t seem to be any way I could get it without cheating, I guess that settles that.

Na you don’t need to team up with anyone else. I just completed mine completely solo. Starting over isn’t so bad considering there’s really no building involved. It’s moreso a relay race rather than anything else. The rewards will have you decked out in S and Black market ranked gear from the get go, so you’re not struggling at all. Worth it imo, it’s a pretty fun way to mix up the monotony of the regular game, and rewards carry over to other saves, but I’m sure it’s not for everyone either.

I managed to go in unspoiled. I almost jumped out of my seat. What a reveal

This indeed a nice surprise… I wonder what happened behind the scene, or is it just really one asking EA nicely and one shall receive kind of thing.

If this in-game ad pays for more free content I guess that’s not so bad. I’m sure its a nice deal for Hello Games.

I have no idea what to do to get this. I only recently just got my first frigate and that was a complex and massive task.

It’s rewarded from completing all of the milestones in the newest Expedition, Beachhead. Expeditions are sort of this game’s version of seasons/leagues from Diablo and PoE. You have to start a new game and choose Expedition, and then basically follow along doing all the milestones.

The good thing is you start off with a frigate and I think a bunch of inventory upgrades right off the bat.

Create a character on new expedition server. I got it in about 6 hours and I was not min/maxing or being very efficient

well Mass Effect 4 was going to be very similar to No Man’s Sky so

Hello Games continuing supply of really cool content for a buy to play game released in 2016 amazes and delights me. That they do this free of charge is even more mind-boggling.
