As previously promised, Hello Games has released its first batch of weekly content for No Man’s Sky.
Starting now, Specialist Polo and Priest Entity Nada will begin reaching out to players who have completed the first Space Anomaly mission to help them examine and explore “a previously undetected iteration of the universe.”
“Specialist Polo and Priest Entity Nada, blinking around the edge of reality in their anomalous spacecraft, are broadcasting a request for assistance,” the developer writes. “Polo’s advanced boundary monitoring equipment has located a previously undetected iteration of the universe and they urgently need explorers to examine and explore this glitch in reality.”
In this first event, players have been tasked with finding and excavating strange objects that have begun spawning underground. Players who return these objects to the Space Anomaly will be rewarded with a new currency called Quicksilver, which can be exchanged for “exclusive exotic collectables.”
To begin with, Quicksilver can be exchanged for six new base building parts, three decals, a new emote, and a new character customization. The items on offer will be expanded to more than 50 as the event continues over the coming weeks.
No Man’s Sky is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
