The next phase of Elite Dangerous is en route – specifically, that’s chapter three of the Beyond rollout. In a brief tweet this afternoon, Frontier put a date on it – August 28 – and dropped a cryptic teaser video to boot.
Based on the game’s roadmap, we’re… actually still not entirely sure what’s in this episode because of how thin the copy is. Right now, new ships, missions, and scenarios are all that’s listed, as this is not expected to be a major update and Reddit seems anything but in hype mode.
