Elite: Dangerous' future is bright, and a little less beige


At its inaugural expo event in London this weekend, Frontier Developments outlined the next 12 months of updates for its currently alien-infested space sim Elite: Dangerous. There’s an awful lot of exciting stuff in store, ranging from new ships and guild-owned space stations, to planets that aren’t so distressingly beige.

Four updates, going under the catch-all name Beyond, are currently planned for release in 2018, and all will be free to those that own the Elite: Dangerous expansion Horizons. There’s a real mix of additions throughout the year, but the general focus appears to be on delivering new quality of life features and on deepening the game’s core, rather than the kind of banner feature additions that have marked Elite’s currently ongoing second “season”.
