Elite: Dangerous released its first major content patch today adding community goals and extra graphical fidelity. Imagine, if you will, getting to join your fellow space friends as you build an Imperial Majestic class Interdictor. Plus the player who donates the most materials gets to name that big beautiful ship! Watch out, the mighty Federation Farragut class Battlecruiser “Tim is Cool” is entering the system!
The below trailer is the chillest thing in the world and I love it. The first forty seconds is just mining space rocks. This is so up my alley I can’t stand it.
Frontier Developments also released some new gorgeous screenshots to whet your whistle as you wait to hop into the Elite Dangerous galaxy.
I’m loving Elite: Dangerous. I got myself a Saitek X52 just for this game. I’ve downloaded a program called Voice Attack so I can actually talk to my ship computer and get it to do things without ever having to take my hands off the Throttle and Joystick.
The next stage in my Elite set up is to get Veronica from CaF to record a bunch of lines and be the voice of my ship computer.
