Cancel your plans for Saturday, folks: You’re gonna want to be in Elite Dangerous. That’s because Frontier has a big event planned that day that ties into the upcoming Premonition novel. In fact, what players do during the event to hunt down (or defend!) accused assassin Salomé will actually affect the book — and the “NPCs” could be killed off permanently.
“I am inviting all of you to take part in an in-game event, the outcome of which will decide how this chapter in the Elite Dangerous storyline concludes,” writes author Drew Wagar. “The book will be written by your combined actions, for good, or for ill…”
In other Elite news, Frontier has recently announced it’ll release Elite as a boxed console-oriented “legendary edition” at brick-and-mortar stores.
In still other Elite news, players have finally discovered one of the original 70,000 Generation sub-light ships that are part of the game’s foundational lore. It’s floating near the Alaunus system, but I’m sad to report that it doesn’t look like any of the colonists escaped the epidemic that ravaged the ship all those years ago — but it’s still pretty cool.
