Elite Dangerous’ Beyond Chapter Three launches on August 28, players take on massive effort to salute community helpers

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.

In other Elite news, players are banding together to thank the Fuel Rats – that is, the community members who donate time and fuel and rescue services to players – by drawing their logo on the map.

The current speculation is that we’ll get Guardian megaships of some kind. Somebody dug up an old lore entry stating that the Guardians went into exodus on generation ships not unlike the human ones that already appear in-game. So it seems reasonable that we might run into one of those somewhere and use the megaship interaction stuff from 3.0 to mess around with it.

The new mining stuff won’t be in this patch will it?

Nah, all the big overhauls are scheduled for Chapter Four.
