Elite Dangerous: Horizons Announced

Today, Frontier Developments announced that Elite Dangerous would be receiving a full season’s worth of updates with the overarching title Horizons later this year. The new expansion will introduce the Surface Recon Vehicle (SRV) ‘Scarab’ landing vehicle which will allow players to explore the surface of world’s they’ve scanned in search of new resources. Players will also be able to carry out raids on planet surfaces with live support from both the ground and sky. According to Frontier Developments, the transition between space and surface will be seamless and allow players to switch between the two without loading screens.KeyArt_EliteDangerous_CQC_CTF_0

Horizons will launch this December for $59.99 with a second round of content planned for release in the first quarter of 2016. Players who already own the base Elite Dangerous game will receive a $15 loyalty discount on the new content and access to the special Cobra MK IV in-game spaceship. The original version of Elite Dangerous will also continue to receive support with Horizons in the form of bug fixes, updates, and other forms of optimization.

My name is Nicole Seraphita and I’m 27. I’ve been gaming since the days of the NES and have owned at least one system from each generation since then. My favorite type of games if most definitely RPGs, with my favorites being titles like Chrono Cross, Persona 4, and Tales of Xillia, though I also sometimes dabble in platforming games, fighting games, and visual novels. When I’m not writing for APGNation or playing games, I enjoy table top and card games, watch anime, and write fiction that I occasionally publish online. I tend to write a lot of Sci-fi and the occasional bit of fantasy, with the often overlooked sub-genre of Biopunk being my favorite. I’ve also written a few visual novels, though only one of them has made it all the way to completion thus far. My current dream is to be able to bring the Monster Girl genre to a western audience.

Have your say!
