Elite Dangerous players, it’s time to get hyped: During yesterday’s stream, Frontier announced a brand-new toy for the game, a commander creator. Known as “Holo-Me” in-lore, the tool will allow players to change their appearance — well, their holographic representations, anyway — from inside their ships, from their outfits to hair and even facial symmetry. Intriguingly, you can change your appearance whenever you want, including characteristics like gender and facial structure, and Frontier says that all of the “base” faces in the game were built using the in-game engine, which demonstrates the range of faces the tool is capable of producing.
There’s much more to the stream including the new camera suite, the dolphin ship (so retro!), and a megaship outpost called Fisher’s Rest, meant as the promised tribute to Carrie Fisher. Check it out below!
