Happy fifth birthday to Elite Dangerous! The internet spaceship sandbox is marking its latest milestone with a whole lot of looking back, some warm messages from the team at Frontier Developments, and a new Community Goal for players to take part in.
The forum post talked about what has transpired in Elite Dangerous’ development over the past five years and even shared an infographic full of interesting trivia for fans which we’ve included below this post. It then offered several words of thanks from several producers, developers, and designers, and then closed out with a look at several community events.
It also announced a celebratory Community Goal in the Reorte system, where players can either turn in a variety of goods or bounty vouchers to Davies High. Taking part in this Community Goal rewards players with a bunch of credits and the Iridescent Gleam paint job for the Cobra Mk III. The event kicked off this past Thursday, December 12th, but it’s running until this coming Wednesday, December 18th, so there’s still time to get your shiny ship paint.
