Introduced during the Expeditions update, this mode provides a series of limited-time events that start at a fixed point in the universe. This allows the community to "embark on a shared journey."

Each Expedition has a main focus, such as Freighters or Fauna; and has a mini story that unfolds as you progress.


The starting planet, tool & ship are different on each expedition; but the same for all players, aside from the configuration of the slots, & an upgrade or two.


Each expedition is structured around a series of Milestones. These goals may be completed in any order, allowing the player to earn specific rewards, meet fellow players, and experiment with different ways of playing the game.


Players must create a new save game at the beginning of each expedition. Game difficulty, hazards and costs are identical to Normal mode. At the end of each expedition (when the timer runs out), the player may choose to convert their save to a new Normal game, and continue to play the save in the Normal universe; or delete the save.


The main rewards for each expedition become available on all saves from the Quicksilver Merchant (if you unlocked them).

This includes any new saves you make in the future.

There are typically four expeditions a year; which are given a Redux over the Christmas Holidays, lasting a shorter period of time each, but also made easier to complete.

Expedition Mode can now be started from within your main save.

Simply visit the terminal on the Space Anomaly; which will also allow you to port over a few items, technologies, a ship and a multi-tool.
