Commanders who are extremely active in all things Elite: Dangerous have likely been looking forward to the space sandbox’s next community goal. Yesterday gave us the answer: a concerted effort to harvest resources in the Witch Head Nebula. The only question now is which group you align with in order to tap this new vein of material.
The Alliance, the Empire, and the Federation are all looking to cut themselves a sweet, steamy piece of that meta-alloy lasagne and bring galactic civilization to the area, and they’re recruiting players to help out. This particular community goal will be open for players from now until Monday, July 22nd.
In other Elite: Dangerous news, Frontier CEO David Braben recently spoke with the folks at GamesIndustry about his 25 years in game development, from the days with Microsoft to the company’s slow transition to self-publisher. If you like getting the behind-the-curtain side of the business of games, it’s worth a read.
