No Man's Sky Expeditions update introduces a seasonal game mode

No Man's Sky just keeps getting better and better with each new update.

What you need to know

  • Hello Games released a new update for No Man's Sky called Expeditions.
  • Expeditions has players completing community tasks together, and these will change seasonally.
  • The update is live today and is free for all existing players.

Just over a month after the Companions update turned No Man's Sky into Jurassic Park, Hello Games has released a new major update for No Man's Sky called Expeditions, free to all existing players on PS4 and PS5. As of today, Expeditions introduces an all-new game mode that will change with the seasons.

According to the announcement, players will now start off on the same planet and embark on community expeditions. Travelers will be able to keep track of these milestones and challenges through the Expedition planner, and rewards vary from a new jetpack, an exclusive ship, a new weapon, and much more in the coming weeks.

Expedition mode is separate from the existing Normal, Creative, Survival, and Permadeath modes, so you won't need to worry about messing with your save file in any of those. At the end of each season the Expedition will be converted to a normal mode save, meaning you won't lose any of your progress or items.

This is a huge step for a game that launched without proper multiplayer — which was eventually added through a series of updates over the years. No Man's Sky is more social than ever, and it's all the better for it.

No Man's Sky on PS5 supports adaptive triggers and haptic feedback through the DualSense controller, so that's the best way to play on Sony's consoles. If you haven't been able to find a PS5 yet, keep checking our PS5 restock tracker.

Twitter has hidden the chronological feed on iOS again – and I'm furious

In a controversial move, Twitter has brought back a feature that removes the 'Latest Tweets' view for users on iOS, which is something that many users, including me, hated back in March 2022 – and it's now rolling out. The first time the company decided to do this, 'Home' would appear first in a tab at the top, and there was no way of changing it so that 'Latest Tweets' would be the default view. It was reverted back after the company said it was a 'bug' for iOS users. This time though, it's no bug. Instead, it's 'For You' and 'Following' where you can only swipe between them now, which doesn't make much sense for a platform where you're using the platform to keep up to date with who you follow. It's a bizarre change that makes me ask – who wants this, especially during a time when its new owner, Elon Musk, is bringing in and reversing changes almost every week still? This one change will have big consequenc

Port of Lisbon hit by ransomware attack

One of Europe’s busiest seaports, the Port of Lisbon, has been hit with a ransomware attack that knocked some of its digital systems offline. "All safety protocols and response measures provided for this type of occurrence were quickly activated, the situation being monitored by the National Cybersecurity Center and the Judicial Police," a statement shared by the Port of Lisbon Administration (APL) with local media earlier this week said. The incident failed to impact the port’s operations, but did take its official website,, offline. LockBit taking responsibility "The Port of Lisbon Administration is working permanently and closely with all competent entities in order to guarantee the security of the systems and respective data," the statement concludes. While the company doesn’t explicitly say it was targeted with ransomware, the LockBit ransomware operator has added APL to its leaks website, taking responsibility for the hit.  The databas

This new Linux malware floods machines with cryptominers and DDoS bots

Cybersecurity researchers have spotted a new Linux malware downloader that targets poorly defended Linux servers with cryptocurrency miners and DDoS IRC bots. Researchers from ASEC discovered the attack after the Shell Script Compiler (SHC) used to create the downloader was uploaded to VirusTotal. Apparently, Korean users were the ones uploading the SHC, and it’s Korean users who are targets, as well. Further analysis has shown that the threat actors are going after poorly defended Linux servers, brute-forcing their way into administrator accounts over SSH.  Mining Monero Once they make their way in, they’ll either install a cryptocurrency miner, or a DDoS IRC bot. The miner being deployed is XMRig, arguably the most popular cryptocurrency miner among hackers. It uses the computing power of a victim's endpoints to generate Monero, a privacy-oriented cryptocurrency whose transactions are seemingly impossible to track, and whose users are allegedly impossible to identify. Fo

Code-generating tools could be more of a security hindrance than help

New research by a group of Stanford-affiliated researchers has uncovered that code-generating AI tools such as Github Copilot can present more security risks than many users may realize. The study looked specifically at Codex, a product of OpenAI, of which Elon Musk is among the co-founders.  Codex powers the Microsoft-owned GitHub Copilot platform, which is designed to make coding easier and more accessible by translating natural language into code and suggesting changes based on contextual evidence. AI-coding problems Lead co-author of the study, Neil Perry, explains that “code-generating systems are currently not a replacement for human developers”. The study asked 47 developers of differing abilities to use Codex for security-related problems, using Python, JavaScript and C programming languages. It concluded that the participants who relied on Codex were more likely to write insecure code compared with a control group. Read more > These are the best laptops for progr
