No Man’s Sky expeditions – are they on Switch?

Get the lowdown on No Man’s Sky expeditions with all previous one’s start and end dates, as well as all current and upcoming expeditions far into the future

No Man’s Sky expeditions are limited-time events, which means you have to be on your toes to get them done. Now that the game is coming to Switch, it’s pretty exciting to imagine diving into the depths of space on the bus or the train. Lovely stuff.

Except, maybe not lovely stuff, as No Man’s Sky is launching as a “single-player experience” on Switch, meaning there won’t be any multiplayer features. As far as I can tell, this means that there will be no No Man’s Sky expeditions on the Nintendo Switch. Of course, we’ll reconfirm this at launch.

Either way, you can find all the No Man’s Sky expeditions below, and hopefully, they’re available in the Switch version in spite of its single-player status. For more, check out our No Man’s Sky multiplayer, No Man’s Sky crossplay, and No Man’s Sky how to save guides.

Current No Man’s Sky expedition

The current No Man’s Sky expedition is titled Polestar and began on July 27 this year. In this community expedition, you “embark on an interstellar cruise as the captain of a heavy shipping freighter, warping your metal fortress across the galaxy.” You can find the full details here. There is no set end date.
