Commanders, today is your day: Elite Dangerous’ Beyond – Chapter One goes live this afternoon after today’s lengthy downtime. As we’ve previously noted, the update is free and rolls out to PC, PS4, and Xbox One simultaneously.
“Beyond – Chapter One introduces challenging Wing Missions, all-new megaship interactions that allow for collection of data and cargo, and a range of major quality of life improvements including changes to the crime and punishment mechanics, visual planetary enhancements, an overhaul of the mission rewards system and the addition of a trade data overlay that will help Commanders find the most profitable trades in the Milky Way.”
Expect a continuation of the ongoing Thargoid plotline, a new combat ship, and more clues about the Guardians too. We’ve got the brand-new cinematic short video and new images down below. Good luck in there, and if you spot my husband flying around, tell him to log out and get back to work.
Commanders, the Elite Dangerous galaxy servers are now offline for the Beyond – Chapter One update! We expect the servers to be offline for approximately 9 hours, so keep an eye on our posts for more information. https://t.co/8egoMULaIF pic.twitter.com/oJp97KdbbN
