This week’s Elite: Dangerous newsletter covers quite a bit of ground. Firstly, the game’s Mac client will launch on May 12th. Mac and PC players can play together seamlessly, and both groups will share the same galaxy and GalNet feed, Frontier says.
The newsletter also says that the Powerplay update’s beta test version will release on May 20th, and it shows off a sneak peek at Powerplay’s galaxy map which in turn shows each power’s control over human space. Finally, this week’s update mentions a couple of meatspace E:D meetups in both the US and the UK, as well as a reminder about executive producer Michael Brookes‘ recent forum post concerning cheaters.[Source: Newsletter 74]
