I probably need to hide my husband’s joystick if I want to see him this week. That’s entirely because chapter three of Elite Dangerous’ Beyond season is officially live today.

It is a fairly small update for the game, note, as the really big stuff isn’t coming until chapter four later this year, but you can nevertheless expect new missiles, the Alliance Crusader, new Guardian sites and fighters, new wing missions, Engineers functionality for Colonia, and a bunch of bug fixes.

As our tipster Cotic pointed out, there appear to be some unannounced goodies in the update too, including… Thargoid interceptors? Check it all out and have fun on patch day!

The new Guardian stuff is looking really cool, the beacons, ruins, fighters and weapons. It’s going to be interesting where they take the remnants of the Guardian vs Thargoid war or whether we’re going to see the Guardians return in some fashion and how the human race would fit into that.

That new Interceptor looks dangerous as hell, especially with a swarm like that. Ate that guy alive :)

you’d have to detach it to hide it, then you’d be lorena bobbitt.

Too much going on for me games wise that I highly doubt I will have the time to look at this but I hope everyone who does has a good time.

Hmm, might have to pop in for a bit. I’m still out in Colonia so I can swing on by those new engineers. I think I’ll pass on the Crusader as I already have a Krait that I love to pieces, but who knows. Looking forward to Chapter 4 though.
