Elite: Dangerous downgrades graphics, plans appearance at Lavecon

    
19

If you have been wondering if Elite: Dangerous looks a little less gorgeous as it did before, trust us, it’s not just you.

After players started posting a slew of comparisons showing that Patch 1.3’s graphics are a downgrade from what came before, Frontier at least admitted that it made adjustments to how it renders dust and fog and said, “Performance and visual consistency should be improved in the general case, however it does seem that some systems are not looking as good as they did.”

On the plus side, Elite: Dangerous is basically getting its own convention this year. Lavecon, a sci-fi and fantasy convention in Northamptonshire, UK on July 11th and 12th, is revolving around Elite’s presence. The con will feature Q&As with the devs, a state of the game planel, an Elite LAN party, and places to experience the game with the Oculus Rift.

bingobrewster “Elite Dangerous is a gem”

… for some.

For others it is an unfinished, buggy, boring, grindy turd from a developer who screwed his kickstarter backers big time.

Smiggins We’ve got several combat loggers who’ve been banished to the shadow server. It’s about the best we’re going get on the P2P system they’re using.

Wow, didn’t know this game still exists. Priceless news though, didn’t they get fat checks from PC Kickstarter backers? Now they downgraded for Xbox exclusive content? Sounds like some poor souls got screwed
