PAX East 2017: Elite Dangerous and its ‘slightly cowboy free-for-all’

    
4

Frontier is hyping Elite Dangerous’ expected Q2 PS4 release at this year’s PAX East (colon still MIA, sorry), complete with confirmed HOTAS support. Frontier’s David Braben has a long video out today introducing the game’s highlights to newcomers, discussing the feel of the lore and the future-fantasy of space exploration more than mechanics (definitely catch his description of free-wheeling space wagon trains with their “slightly cowboy free-for-all” aesthetic).

There’s a trailer too — it’s all down below for your eyeballs!

Does ED have something like guilds (corps, etc.) by now? Last time I played ED I really missed that …

Only on the most basic level, there are no guild tools and there are no perks for owning a station or anything like that. I don’t know what their plans are for guilds/clans. However, lots of people are involved with guilds and various player groups.
