Expedition 7: Leviathan describes the 7th expedition in No Man's Sky.

Summary[]

This page documents the 7th community expedition of No Man's Sky, called Leviathan. It began on 25 May 2022, and is set to end on 5 July 2022.

Expedition Background[]

Leviathan traps players inside a time loop, and offers a taste of roguelike gameplay. Difficulty is tuned to survival-mode settings, and every death means a reset of the loop (where players restart at the beginning of the expedition with all inventory reset). As players explore the loop, they will recover Memory Fragments: lost remnants of previous loops manifested as procedurally generated technology.

To ease the progress, players may collaborate with each other, as well as provide help to Specialist Polo as they research the loop’s peculiar manifestations. The more Travellers that participate in the research, the stronger the Memory Fragments become, manifesting in better upgrades, more inventory space, and stronger Multi-Tools and starships.

Shattered memories all point towards an encounter with an ancient space creature: The Leviathan.

Gameplay[]

Each player will start on the Scorched planet Christole Oich, approximately 300–600u away from their crashed starship, located at a random POI. The starting starship is a random solar with 11+9+3 slots.

The starting Multi-tool is a random 9-slot rifle with installed Scanner, Analysis Visor, and a broken Terrain Manipulator.

Both Starship and Multi-tool class reflects the global progress of searching Universal Loop. After Memory Fragments are upgraded to X-class, Starship and Multi-tool remain S-class.

The Exosuit has 18+8+0 slots loaded with a Save Point, a Portable Refiner, 5x Ion Battery, and a Memory Fragment (Exosuit). The initial avatar appearance is randomly-generated.

The player also owns a C-class Freighter with 16+8 slots which does not have installed Hyperdrive, and it does not seem it is possible to install one.

The player begins the game with the following blueprints already known:

All Blueprints and Upgrade Modules in this expedition are prohibitevely expensive, and many blueprints are "lost", so players will have to rely on awarded Mamory Fragments and X-Class upgrade modules purchased in pirate-controlled systems as Suspicious Packet (Technology) and Suspicious Packet (Weaponry). All X-Class upgrade modules in this expedition will have stats higher than equivalent S-class modules. Crashed Ships are also a good source of blueprints.
