No Man’s Sky is one of the few examples of games that launched in a bad state and was saved by the myriad of updates that developers have released over the years. If you haven’t yet played Hello Games’ title that made its debut back in 2016, expeditions are always a good motive to pick this one up.

Expeditions have become the core of No Man’s Sky’s gameplay for quite a while, as many fans can’t wait to embark on a new adventure that unravels more of the mysteries of the universe contained in the game.

Singularity is the name of the most recent No Man’s Sky update, and just like the previous ones, it promises various rewards that can be redeemed in the solo campaign after you’ve managed to achieve any of the objectives required.

The most intriguing aspect of Singularity is the fact that it continues the rather mysterious story introduced in the Interceptor update, thus players will be able to unveil even more of the history and original of the so-called “harmonic camps.”
