First Elite Dangerous Beyond Update Gets Late January Beta

Back in October of previous year, at the Frontier Expo 2017, Frontier Developments announced the details of the third season of Elite: Dangerous.

It will also, at long last, see the arrival of proper Wing missions that can be tackled by a fleet of up to four Commanders, all offering shared rewards.

Chapter One introduces the Chieftain ship - a new Alliance craft designed by in-game manufacturer Lakon Spaceways - that's "more maneuverable than ships of similar size and weight, and [.] can more than hold its own in a fight", according to Frontier.

Engineering mechanics, mission rewards, and a new crime and punishment system will also come into play. Information on the galactic economy is now more freely available, allowing every commander to become a master merchant as they journey among the stars.

"Because of the huge number of core feature enhancements, the introduction of a new ship, and other numerous additions and improvements", explains Frontier, "we want to be sure that as many of you are able to experience and test the beta first-hand, for that reason we have chose to open this beta to all players of Elite Dangerous and Elite Dangerous: Horizons on PC". Additionally, GalNet Audio will allow players to catch up on the galaxy's latest news without ever leaving the action, bringing the ongoing narrative to the foreground at a risky moment for humanity's pilots. That said, some of the upcoming improvements are only accessible to Elite Dangerous: Horizons owners. Chapter One's open beta kicks on January 25, and will be playable through the in-game launcher. This may prove more significant than it sounds, and could potentially help draw more focus to Elite's ongoing narrative elements and events, given that Galnet will no longer remain exclusively in the domain of those willing to park up and wade through pages of text, rather than playing the actual game. Some may know you as an ally; others will call you a pirate, a bounty hunter, a smuggler, an explorer, an assassin, a hero... Your actions change the galaxy around you in an ever-unfolding story. This has all been building up to Elite Dangerous: Beyond, a multi-chapter series of updates that will explore humanity's next steps in the face of the Thargoid threat.

Elite Dangerous is available now for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Jurassic World Evolution is coming Summer 2018.
