Elite Dangerous: Beyond – Chapter One launches next week
Frontier have announced that Beyond - Chapter One is set to blast off for Elite Dangerous on February 27.
Beyond, the third Elite Dangerous season will be free for all players, and will focus on community-requested enhancements to the overall player experience. Alongside those core foundational changes, new in-game content will progress the ever-expanding player-driven storyline and give pilots across the galaxy new tools to shape the ongoing narrative.
With the release of Chapter One the crime and punishment system in Elite Dangerous will undergo a series of changes designed to improve the response to players’ criminal activities, making Open Play’s massively multiplayer galaxy fairer and more competitive.
The new Advance Tactical Response will be on the hunt for repeat offenders, ‘Hot Ships’ attach crimes to players’ spacecrafts, and new notoriety levels increase consequences for illegal activities making the galaxy a more challenging place for veteran pilots.
With the introduction of GalNet Audio the main source of news in Elite Dangerous becomes easily accessible as commanders can catch up on the latest updates and engage with the overarching narrative without ever leaving the action.
