    Wait, what? Seriously?

    Only people that haven't been paying attention...

    You might have assumed that. But since DBOBE said a couple of years ago that they might have to start with airless planets, many of us thought otherwise.

    Are atmospheric landings part of the EDH expac, or when released will they be an additional purchase?
    He said that it's not for the EDH "season"

    Sooo, any info about the end date for the preorder?
    I'll hawe to wait at least two weeks before being able to buy the expansion, and i'd really like to still get the cobra mk IV :3

    Well, judging by the replies in this thread, I wasn't the only one! I knew they were introducing landings in phases, but charging separately for those phases was never mentioned, I don't think. I guess your assumption could have been one way or the other at that announcement.

    One expansion (and charge), several phases.

    Michael, what time scale determines a "season" in regards to this? 3 months or a full year? (sorry if it's already been asked!)

    Have you ever played Mass Effect 1?
    Remember planetary landing with the Mako (vehicule) and the exploration/combat gameplay?
    Far from being fun/interesting, we were glad to see this gone away from Mass Effect 2 and 3...
    Please, don't do this...please...

    I need to know a couple of things, for a friend, I'm sorry if it was already asked.

    My questions are:

    1) Preordering Elite Dangerous: horizons, gives INSTANT access to Elite: Dangerous?
    2) A steam key is provided buying the game from Frontier?

    Ty for the patience.

    Yeah, I just did the math too.

    I've played 1200 hrs and paid $50. I just added lifetime pass for $180, so total $230. If I stopped playing today, I will have played for about 19 cents per hour. Works for me.

    And of course, I'll keep playing, so that will just go down.

    Hey guys and girls from Frontier Development!

    Did i get this right, after buying the game i have to pay extra money to get content (planetary landings), that was supposed to be an elementary part of the game? Don't get me wrong, the game so far is beautiful, you can see and feel the big ammount of work and passion invested by the dev-team. That there is still a feeling of emptiness sometimes isn't a problem to me, you guys filling it up constantly, it was always stated by Frontier Development that the game will evolve over time and every player agreed to buy the not yet finished product... and at least it is a space game... But having to pay additional money for something that was always said to be part of the gaming experience is kinda outrageous. The 14€ discount and the pimped Cobra MkIV are... nice gestures, but nothing more than that. It's not some of the promised parts of the game I've been waiting for. To make sure you don't misunderstand me: I don't want to offend you or decry what's released so far. I love Elite: Dangerous, seriously! But grabbing my money twice for one completed game isn't right or fair.

    Nice news to wake up to this morning. Looking forward to the new game play. Just bought ED a couple weeks ago and have been having a blast. Don't at all mind paying for the new content.

    I played Star Wars Galaxies from the day it went live to the day it went off line. I paid for every expansion as they came out, and I think there were 4 of them, and on top of that I paid a monthly subscription fee of $15. So I do not mind paying for this expansion...just glad there is no monthly fee! Not sure why people are so upset about paying for the expansion...Frontier said in the kickstarter that major expansions like that would have to be purchased.

    I ask because I was under the impression planetary landings would be a single expansion that you pay to access and is continually developed from airless moons to atmospheres and cities etc. Not sure I could justify paying 3-4 times the price of the base game just to get the one bit I want.
    The content and features are done in seasons, with the current game being essentially the first season. Elite Dangerous: Horizons will be the second season, so if you purchase that you get all the content and features for that season. There will then be other seasons which have different content and features - although as we've only just announced the next season they're a bit far away to talk about!

    I especially want to know about the steam key... I am ready to pay for the expansion now, but bought ED on Steam just a few weeks ago. I want to make sure I can get it on Steam (linked to my steam account) as soon as it is available.
