You can unlock Mass Effect’s Normandy SR1 as a frigate in No Man’s Sky for a limited time

Well here’s something I wasn’t expecting to write on a Friday afternoon (or, indeed, ever). Hello Games’ effervescent space sim No Man’s Sky is getting in on the big-brand crossover action, and you’re currently able to unlock a little piece of BioWare’s Mass Effect to treasure forever in-game in the form of your very own SSV Normandy SR1.
