Elite Dangerous is coming to the PlayStation 4 — and while it is not bringing its lost colon, it’s bringing everything else. Frontier CEO David Braben announced the news early this morning.
“It is great to come to PlayStation. When Elite Dangerous arrives on PlayStation 4 next year, we’re bringing the full game with everything in our ‘Horizons’ season of expansions included, so not only can you fly your ship, but you can carry an ‘SRV’ – Surface Recon Vehicle – in your hold, and charge around the surfaces of planets and moons at up to 100mph, finding materials, attacking bases, or seeking out hidden secret things with your friends.”
While there aren’t many details just yet, Braben does say that the team is “making full use of the PS4 system and the unique features of the PS4 and PS4 Pro to deliver an experience unlike any other on the console, with features tailored to the DualShock 4 controller” specifically. Oh yeah, and it’s launching Q2 2017.
