So having picked this up yesterday and still finding out which way is up, is this update anything I need to care about for now?

Give it a try. It's a different save slot. Expeditions are usually a good way to get introduced into the game, because there's a defined path to follow... and it gives you rewards you can use in your other saves.
 
Yeah maybe. :unsure: I'm not a noob, but I find Expeditions can sometimes be confusing, but then I play in a very freeform way, so a bit of rigidity is quite comforting.

They're also time-limited, so may as well try.

We get many noobs in the steam forums asking Expedition questions that indicate they never played the basic tutorial. Questions about blueprints and crafting are common and will be answered in the starter tutorial, and seem to be assumed knowledge in the expedition.

My advice is this: Once the game starts to click (should only take a few hours), try the expedition. Each expedition has unique rewards you won't want to miss out on.
 
I don't get why you have to do it in separate save. I don't want to grind out the start again. Once is enough. Once wasn't bad, but twice?
The milestones are the core of expeditions. If they let us play from an advanced save file, all of the milestones would be completed from the start. The expeditions give you some shortcuts, such as skipping the main quest. You get rewards for milestones and some rewards are unlocked at the QS vendor which means they are available to all your saves.

But the grinding in the start is the most exciting part. :D

Actually, I have enjoyed restarting several times in the lifetime of NMS, and honestly, I get bored when I reach the "got everything" level. But the start, when you have nothing, is most fun. To me at least.

This is why the expeditions are my fav way of starting a new game. Keep the excitement but skip the boring tutorial.

Totally agree. And it's different each time, especially this time. Apparently, Ex4 is a narrative, a story... damn it! With sandworms. And it looks like you can ride them... OMG. Hello Games gone done it again. Not long from now, the health department will declare NMS an addictive drug and HG keeps on getting you hooked.

It is a fine line to tread. But I agree, very often the early game is the best part and you can see me very often restart a game dozens of times, then claim "is good game" even without maybe ever completing it (Divinity Original Sin 2 e.g., it's good - just too long for my taste, and now it sits on differend HDD and I dont bother anymore)
