There’s an ARG going on in Elite: Dangerous right now

It's not in imminent danger!

Elite: Dangerous players are in the midst of an ARG based around in-game artifacts that were tracked down by a coordinated community effort. Producer Michael Brookes subsequently suggested listening to the newly discovered cargo item, and scuttlebutt says that it relates to the insect-like Thargoid race from previous Elite titles.

Brookes hinted at the Thargoids as early as 2013 in a dev diary. “You will start to learn some of the secrets of the Thargoids, and they’ll certainly be present in the game when it starts, but they’ll very much be a background encounter,” he wrote.

So what is it? I don’t understand this … someone found an in-game item – probably with sound, because Michael Brookes said your should listen to it – and now they’re in an Alternate Reality Game? This is greek to me. LOL!

I’m looking forward to seeing where this goes. I’ve always enjoyed this kind of stuff. Glad to see so much community involvement.

Saerain Because solving the “puzzle” so to speak requires you solving and figuring things out with other people outside of the gaming environment.

Can you still log off in the middle of combat in this game to avoid dying?
