No Man’s Sky update 3.74 is now available to download on all platforms. The hotfix is a follow up to this week’s 3.73 update which included a short list of tweaks and changes.


There’s nothing major to pick out from these latest No Man’s Sky patch notes other than some welcome fixes to the core game and expeditions. You can find the full changelog further down.

Speaking of expeditions, developer Hello Games announced that it will be bringing these special adventures back into circulation.

One of the biggest updates this year added expeditions, creating tailored journeys for players to explore. However, the timed nature of these expeditions means that some fans naturally miss out, whether they’re caught up in another game or simply too busy. Hello Games has devised a schedule, detailing when past expeditions will be available to play again once more. This includes an expedition in which No Man’s Sky players can unlock the Normandy SR1 spaceship – the same ship helmed by Commander Shepard in the Mass Effect series.

Looking to the year ahead, Hello games teases that there’s even more content and updates in store for 2022, saying saying there are “no signs of us slowing”.
