The world of Elite Dangerous gets a lot bigger this holiday season with the Horizons expansion pack, launching on December 15th. This expanded version of the game will feature a host of new features, including new ships, missions, a CQC (Close Quarter Combat) Arena, and the ability to land on a planet’s surface and explore in search of new resources and adventures. Horizons will also feature a host of other improvements and expanded content 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.
Those who haven’t yet decided if they want to upgrade to Horizons just yet won’t be left out in the cold this holiday season. As the developers of the game have promised to continue supporting the vanilla version of Elite Dangerous, and to keep players of both games in the same galaxy.
Elite Dangerous: Horizons is available for pre-order now on Steam and via Frontierstore.net.
