I think these videos could be spoilers, so I’ll move them here.

Hope everyone got on better than I did. My experience of the last stages was half an hour spent stumbling from glitch to glitch unti it finished. Disappointing end to an otherwise enjoyable expedition.,

A new S-Class Frigate for the expedition unlock…it is described as a stealth reconnaissance frigate. A couple of questions come to mind:

  • I wonder what that means?
  • Can you exceed the current max of 30 frigates when you unlock it?
  • Since it looks like you can summon it like a freighter, can you pilot it or use it like a freighter?

The who with the fuck now? WHAT? :rofl:
I was sure the screenshot that devlinpixy posted initially was a clever photoshop.

The only question left: Did HG pay Bioware for use of their IP, or did Bioware pay HG for product placement along with the launch of the legendary edition?? :thinking:

(Well, actually that’s only one of the questions. Another one would be, is this building up to a larger crossover? Do we get humans now in the game? Can we pilot frigates now? Huh, yes, that’s a lot of questions left. Never mind…)

I am not sure what would happen if you claim the reward while already having max frigates. I would not dare try either to be honest. You can however delete frigates from the Bridge terminal, to not exceed the maximum allowed.

Just acts like any other frigate, no summoning that I am aware of

When I claimed the Normandy in my main save it replaced an attack frigate i had, so it looks like 30 is still the cap. Theres no way to board it, I just sent it out on a mission along with other frigates.

With no way to board it, it suggests that it never malfunctions.

Legendary Mass Effect frigate, the SSV Normandy SR1, sighted in No Man’s Sky as the second expedition reaches it’s conclusion.

As huge fans of #masseffect, we were thrilled to work with the great folks at BioWare and EA on this tie-in.

Okay, this is cool but… What?

There was new lore/story that got exciting. Is it relevant to NMS still? Or was it just buildup to an advertisement?

I’d say it is the “Weapon”, it just happens to look like the ship from Mass Effect (Easter Egg)…so I assume the Lore stands. But as it is only unlockable during the 2 weeks and then gone for anyone who doesn’t unlock…I don’t think it will have Lore impact going forward. Which is a shame. But I don’t think the Beacon etc is the last time it will be used.

This should probably go here, at least until the 2 weeks is up.

The ship will make some nice screen shots.

In my normal save, it will not let me claim the Normandy because I have 30 frigates. Just says inventory full
Had to Dismiss one frigate…

Should be able to delete one, but good to know it actually doesn’t let you claim.

How to do dismiss them is not readily apparent.

Same place you choose them for a mission.
