Crowding in on a packed MMO month this June, Elite Dangerous will launch on the PlayStation 4, bringing this space sim to consoles for the first time. But what does that mean for all players of the game going forward?
The team posted a preview of what’s being worked on behind the scenes, starting with the rollout of 2.3.10 on June 27th. This patch, which will role out to every game version, is mostly focused on under-the-hood fixes for game stability and performance.
Following that is a “mystery update” that will be spread out over time: “We’ll be providing a little more information about the update to the community and the press during E3 on June 13th and 14th. We’ll be hosting special community livestreams and activity so stay tuned for more news and updates as we get closer to the date. I can, however, tell you that this update will be slightly different to previous ones — content will be revealed over time rather than all being available on day one. Additional pieces of exciting content will surface over the coming months as the narrative progresses.”
The team said that past these two updates will come more improvements, including efforts to shore up the core gameplay experience. A more detailed roadmap is planned to be revealed at “a very special event” later this year.
