The headline says it all, folks. The first free update of the third season of Elite Dangerous launches with Elite Dangerous: Beyond - Chapter One, starting today.
The update seeks to change crime and punishment mechanics, improve on planetary visuals, and provide more ways to profit from missions.
Beyond Chapter One continues the story of the Thargoid invasion, when an ancient spacecraft proves to be a deadly threat in the war. In response to this, however, is an Alliance ship known as the Chieftain, favoring offensive tactics over defense.
Players can also unearth secrets of the long-lost Guardians, and researching them will provide players with new advantages in their war against the Thargoids.
Elite Dangerous: Beyond - Chapter One is available now.
