Elite Dangerous: Horizons is the new season of major gameplay expansions for the award-winning space epic Elite Dangerous, beginning today with Planetary Landings on 1:1 scale worlds throughout the Milky Way. Elite Dangerous: Horizons will introduce further major gameplay features as the season continues into 2016, enriching the Elite Dangerous experience with new activities and new ways to play.
Frontier has also launched Elite Dangerous 1.5: Ships – a free update for all Elite Dangerous players on PC, Mac and Xbox One – adding over 300 improvements including new spacecraft, new missions and SteamVR support.
In the first of Elite Dangerous: Horizons’ expansions, Planetary Landings, players can journey seamlessly from space to surface and choose their own landing point on accurately simulated planets and moons throughout Elite Dangerous’ full-scale Milky Way galaxy.
Players coast over mountain tops, dive into canyons and take command of the new ‘SRV’ ground vehicles. Each of these 1:1 scale worlds offers incredible vistas and countless gameplay opportunities as players discover valuable resources, experience deadly combat encounters, raid bases, scout crash sites, and cooperate with other players on the planet surface and flying high above.Planetary Landings is an entirely new way to play Elite Dangerous, and is just the first part of the Horizons season of expansions.
Elite Dangerous and Elite Dangerous: Horizons are fully back and forward compatible with each other. All players will retain their in-game progress and continue to fly together in the same galaxy as one community, and all Elite Dangerous players will continue to receive free updates, fixes and optimizations.
