Elite: Dangerous is pushing the Engineers beta out on May 5th

Eagerly awaiting the next update to Elite: Dangerous? It’s been pushed back a fair bit, but it has been confirmed that the next update will enter beta on Thursday, May 5th. The most recent developer stream announced the date but also noted that taking the day off from work to play the beta might be a bad idea, although whether that’s due to the beta being buggy or bosses that will fire anyone playing the game is as of yet unrevealed.

The handy summary on the forum puts all of the previewed mechanics into one easily accessible spot. Each Engineer in the game will have individual motivations, interests, and backstories, with each individual NPC inviting or dealing with players based on a variety of factors; players will collect salvage, bring it back to Engineers, and use it to upgrade modules. Check out the full summary for more details on the soon-to-be-tested game mechanics.

I love how this game flys with a HOTAS! I’ve yet to get the Planet expansion part. That looks amazing :o

Cotic_OP That base looks awesome, I was kind of hoping the interior might be a bit more different but no biggie!
I will have to make my way back soon, I kitted out an ASP and flew off into the void trying to make it to the center of the galaxy but got bored and have left it!
I need to stop being lazy gather up some more scan data and head back ready for the launch of the patch

Looking forward to this patch, so many nice changes on the way.

I imagine the (limited) RNG element for crafting is going to get some ire, it’ll be interesting to see the feedback around it.

The bases look really cool, very impressed with them
