Elite Dangerous is kicking off a two-week series of Mayhem events tonight. These are designed to draw the community together, test upcoming content, and stress the servers.
Frontier posted a schedule of the Mayhem livestreams and events, which includes speed landings, slalom races, close quarters combat fight nights, recon missions, and treasure hunts. Some of the events are exclusively geared toward the Xbox One community.
Elite also announced that it will be adapting to virtual reality platforms in the near future. SteamVR and HTC Vive support was mentioned as coming out for free later this year.
