Gamescom 2015: Elite Dangerous: Horizons is kicking off with planetary landing

    
167
What's on the ground?! Oh, rocks.

The Elite: Dangerous gameplay is expanding downward. To the extent that “down” is a relevant direction in space, anyhow; the important part is that you’ll be able to go from space to huge planetary sandboxes in Elite Dangerous: Horizons. That’s the title for the game’s next major “season” of updates, and it all starts by allowing players to land ships and explore the airless rock worlds scattered throughout the galaxy.

While that’s just the beginning, players are promised plenty to see and do on the rocky worlds aside from just leaving the cockpit and having a nice stroll. The bad news is that you’ll need to pay money for the expansion, but there is a discount offered for existing customers and the game’s lifetime expansion pass option is also being brought back. Get ready to fly to strange new worlds and start exploring them from the surface as well as in orbit.

are you seriously using “scale” as an argument here?
The Cobra engine that Elite is made on (frontiers own in-house engine) is originally made for FPS games so there is not much “try” there. 
Elite will eventually become full fps and thats a fact, and when it does it will have 400 billion+ star system whit an estimated average of *10 planets in each that you can walk around and explore.

and you SC boys will have what? something like 50 solar systems whit out any planet sized sandboxes, only little space ports that you can walk around on.

Kataq Well, it’s often customary to reply to posts which you have been tagged in. Like i said before, be careful who you tag in your replies (you can delete the names you know).
Besides, I was trying to give you a way out from making yourself look like an ass by gloating and dragging the subject on for longer than it should have been.
