Elite: Dangerous is headed to the Xbox One

More On: Elite: Dangerous

One of my favorite games on the PC from last year is coming to the console. Frontier Developments has announced that Elite: Dangerous is coming to the Xbox One.

Details are a little scarce but the game should have all the content up to March's PC update. March's update is where Elite really makes playing cooperatively a lot easier and more rewarding.

Part of the appeal for me in playing Elite: Dangerous is using a HOTAS setup to fly around. There were some setups for the Xbox 360, so maybe we'll see some come out for the Xbox One.

The game's pretty massive, being a 1:1 recreation of the Milky Way for you to fly around. Let's hope there aren't many or any compromises for the game to come to the Xbox One. Frontier is looking to release the game sometime this year.

The Definitive Massively Multiplayer Space Epic Comes to Xbox One This Year
 
Cambridge, UK. 4 March, 2015. Frontier Developments plc (AIM: FDEV) today announced plans to bring the definitive massively multiplayer space epic Elite: Dangerous to Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, in this calendar year.
 
Elite: Dangerous is the critically acclaimed third sequel to the genre-defining Elite, created in 1984 by David Braben and Ian Bell. Elite: Dangerous brings gaming’s original open world adventure into the modern generation with a connected galaxy, evolving narrative and the entirety of the Milky Way re-created at its full galactic proportions.
 
Starting with only a small starship and a few credits, players do whatever it takes to earn the skill, knowledge, wealth and power to survive in a futuristic cutthroat galaxy and to stand among the ranks of the iconic Elite. In an age of galactic superpowers and interstellar war, every player’s story influences the unique connected gaming experience and handcrafted evolving narrative. Governments fall, battles are lost and won, and humanity’s frontier is reshaped, all by players’ actions.
 
Elite: Dangerous for Xbox One will include all content added to the PC version by February’s Community Goals content update and March’s Wings content update. Available for free next week on PC, Wings unites players to cooperate and collaborate across the galaxy and share in the rewards together. Wings will empower players to help protect friends on a risky trade run, spread out to map systems or hunt prey, and work together to reshape the galaxy.
 
Elite: Dangerous for Xbox One is planned to launch in 2015. For further information and to subscribe to the Elite: Dangerous for Xbox One mailing list, visithttp://www.elitedangerous.com/xboxone
