Elite: Dangerous Developer Increases Revenue

Elite Dangerous: Beyond Update Details Announced

Frontier Developments has announced a number of new ships, game changes, and other updates coming to Elite Dangerous during a live stream at Frontier Expo 2017. The upcoming updates are slated to be free for players to enjoy and will be released as part of the 2018 update, known as Elite Dangerous: Beyond.

Elite Dangerous: Beyond

The changes and additions were discussed in a live stream broadcast from Frontier Expo 2017 in London, England. The bulk of promised updates included in Elite Dangerous: Beyond include quality of life changes and tweaks to existing systems, such as new mining tools and improvements to crafting and trading. However, gameplay, particularly cooperative gameplay, will see the addition of Squadrons, which are large and organized groups of players, as well as gigantic dock-capable Fleet Carrier ships that they can use as a mobile base of sorts. Fans of the universe and story also will have cause to celebrate. The Guardians’ story will continue, taking the player to forgotten places and through new narratives.

Our Thoughts

Frontier has hit a home run again with this latest update. There’s little more to be said, really; Elite Dangerous has a solid development team and a dedicated fan base, and enough development capital to fully utilize the former and please the latter. A lot of other game developers and publishers could take note.
