    Beyond - Chapter Four - Pre-Beta Announcement

    Hello Commanders,

    Here's a special message from Game Director, Laurence Oldham, about the upcoming beta for Beyond - Chapter Four:

    Dear Commanders,

    It is with a feeling of anticipation and excitement that later today we release Beyond Ė Chapter Fourís open PC beta, giving you the first opportunity to get your hands on with the biggest Elite Dangerous update of 2018 ahead of its official launch later this year. With that in mind, I wanted to explain how the beta process works for the newest Commanders among you and how we can work together to make this a successful beta phase for Chapter Four.

    Itís been a long journey since we first announced our plans for this Chapter at Frontier Expo in October 2017 and we have been hard at work ever since, implementing many ambitious ideas and taking a deep look into aspects like Eliteís Background Simulation, Codex, and Exploration; just a few of the features youíll be able to test during the first part of our open beta from this afternoon.

    However, our journey is not yet complete.

    Chapter Four will be the biggest influx of new content for Elite Dangerous in 2018 and it represents the culmination of our combined efforts during many months of development. To ensure the results will be as good as we can possibly make them, we would invite you to join us in this final opportunity to identify and fix any issues together. For us, this open beta is a vital part of the development process and our hope is that you, our dedicated community, will participate, enjoy, and let us know what you experience. Any problems you encounter during your travels, please take the time to report them to us here. Having this one central location for all Commanders to register feedback is very important as it allows us to easily collate and register comments, bugs, and suggestions. We have assigned a dedicated team to track all your reports as they come in and we are committed to improving Chapter Four based on your observations.

    As we progress through the weeks, new features and new content will become available for you to try out and report on.

    We are currently completing our pre-flight checks and we expect to be ready to launch shortly after 15:00 UTC. All thatís left is to say a huge thank you to everyone taking part, I really hope you enjoy it.

    Laurence

    It's most likely not open yet as the Beta hasn't launched, check back after the release

    Hello folks,

    That sub forum should be going live shortly, but will need to be used for any beta-related bugs and feedback.
