While Star Citizen’s protracted development rumbles on, Frontier has been busy doing its own thing with Elite Dangerous, racking up some impressive content updates since its initially barebones release.
Frontier’s getting ready to launch Elite Dangerous: Beyond - Chapter 1 this week, the first of a handful of large updates throughout 2018 that will form Elite’s Season 3. Chapter 1 drops on February 27th as a free update, advancing the player-driven narrative after the Thargoid aliens’ assault on humanity.
Changes inbound on February 27th include the introduction of GalNet Audio, meaning fully voiced audio on the global news network, new engineer mechanics, overhauled mission rewards, and a reworked crime and punishment system.
Elite Dangerous: Beyond - Chapter 1 will be coming to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as a free update on February 27th.
