Elite Dangerous: Horizons is the new season of expansions for Elite Dangerous, with updates coming throughout 2016. When Elite Dangerous: Horizons goes live TODAY! (December 15) the first major expansion will be the highly anticipated ‘Planetary Landings,’ which allows players to discover and explore billions of full-size airless worlds throughout the galaxy, each simulated to exacting detail by the game’s Stellar Forge.

Following Planetary Landings, additional updates will come online in 2016, including:

  • Loot and Crafting, unlocking a world of customization options and adding new value and meaning to every action.
  • Multicrew, allowing teams of players to assume roles aboard the same ship.
  • Commander Creation, giving a unique appearance to players’ in-game avatars.
  • Ship-Launched Fighters, allowing larger spacecraft to carry their own short-range fighter ships for attack and defense.
  • New Missions and Ships, expanding the already massive amount of playable content.
  • New Close Quarter Combat (CQC) Arenas, providing additional challenges to prove multiplayer superiority

Frontier listens and reacts to player feedback after every Elite Dangerous release, and Elite Dangerous: Horizons will follow the same process. To highlight this to new players, the new Elite Dangerous: Horizons season will launch as an ‘Early Access’ release on FrontierStore.net.
