    NEWSLETTER #187

                 

    Welcome to the Elite Dangerous Newsletter, the place to find all the latest from the Elite Dangerous galaxy.

    This week we're inviting you to our Frontier Meet at PAX West in Seattle, reminding you to grab your tickets for Frontier Expo before they sell out, firing up our friendship drives in Comms Chatter and much more.

    As always, you can hear the latest news and updates directly from the development team on our Forums, Twitter, Facebook, Community Homepage, and right here in the newsletter every week, and we're always eager to hear your feedback.

    On the Horizon
    All the latest for Elite Dangerous: Horizons

    Things are getting busy in the studio as we turn our focus on the upcoming Frontier Expo and our Frontier Meet during gamescom, but we want to do something nice for our North American community too!

     

    We know not everyone is able to travel to London for FX2017 in October to be there in person, so we are going to PAX West in Seattle, and will be hosting another of our informal and fun-filled Frontier Meets! If you’re able to make it to Seattle on 31 August we would love to see you there!

      

    Click here to see more information about our PAX West event, and find out how you can register for free tickets!













    Tickets are nearly sold out for Frontier Expo 2017, so we'd strongly suggest you head over to the website now to reserve yours.

    You don't want to miss out on the announcements, community challenges, after-party and meet and greets and exclusive panels!

    ALLIANCE RESEARCH INITIATIVE


    The Alliance has launched a new research initiative to enhance understanding of the Thargoids. The primary aim of the initiative is to build a range of state-of-the-art instruments expressly designed to analyse Thargoid material. To this end, the Alliance has placed an open order for various resources to build the new tools.









    SIRIUS CORPORATION ENTERS MEROPE


    A number of media outlets have reported that the Sirius Corporation has entered the Merope system, establishing two new outposts in the region. Although the mega-corporation has asserted that the outposts will support mining operations in the region, commentators have speculated that the corporation is positioning itself to take control of the region’s barnacles.

    ORDER RESTORED IN HEHE

    Authorities in the Hehe system have reported that the conflict between Hehe Federal Interstellar and Hehe Camorra has reached an end. Both factions issued calls for support, promising generous rewards to pilots who lent their aid, but ultimately it was the Hehe Federal Interstellar that emerged victorious.

    The Friendship Drive recreates that early game feel when you first stepped out to explore. I remember the time I went exploring in my T6 and had to file a report... Best decision ever! It's how I found this forum.

    Skull decals would look nice on my FDL. Now all we need is a few more skins for it (WWII bomber nose-art anyone?).

    Good job FD, we really did need yet another newsletter entirely devoted to nothing of any consequence.

    fyi: top and bottom sections show as empty rectangles if using the default 'Official Frontier Theme' (yeah, the one with white background that doesn't burn your retinas )
