Hello Games has announced a new Halloween event for No Man’s Sky named Expedition Four: Emergence. The seasonal event, which starts today, brings a new narrative–the first the game mode has ever had–as well as several gameplay features and enhancements.
In Expedition Four: Emergence, players are stranded on a planet called Wasan, which has been “ravaged by dust storms” and “infested with Titan Worms.” Players must locate the Titan Worm impact sites, destroying Hungering Tendrils, and collecting Vile Spawn. Removing the “cursed dust” and sandworms from the planet will eventually reveal the dark narrative to the player, as well as unlock exclusive rewards throughout.
This update also brings an assortment of new gameplay features, including a varied collection of sandworms that players will come across, along with revamped partivle effects for meteors, explosions, muzzle flashes, burrowing fauna dust, billowing smoke, and laser impacts. The game also adds the ability to tame and grow a sandworm. Players can feed, pet, ride, and explore the universe with worm companion. Oh yeah, and they can fly.
Additional features include the Ghastly Trail customization option fro the player’s Jetpack exhaust nozzles. This applies a gooey fluid effect when in flight. Meanwhile, the Flesh Launcher firework will explode with slime, phasma, and worms. Other customization items include the Titanic Trophy skull of a sandworm for base decoration, a Feasting Casque helmet, and more.
