    Horizons Release Date – Tuesday 15th December

    Hi Everyone,

    Beta is going very well – the team have been working hard and have made great progress. Thanks to all those that have been helping us - a great many improvements have been included already, with another update (Beta 5) expected tomorrow, with more tweaks and changes.


    We have worked very hard to ensure forward & backward compatibility so that all players of both seasons can play in the same galaxy together.


    After every Elite Dangerous release we have taken care to listen and reacted to all feedback, and Elite Dangerous: Horizons will follow exactly the same process. Included with Horizons will be multiple expansions of which Planetary Landings will be the first.


    All going well, we plan to launch Horizons with Planetary Landings on Tuesday (15th December – you heard it here first!). This will initially be termed an ‘Early Access’ release to highlight our normal process to our broad audience, some of whom have been with us since the start, but many have joined our community very recently.


    We’ve put together a beta gameplay trailer here, for those that don’t have yet the beta, and here is a link:





    Thank you everyone for your support, and your tickets and reports, and I look forwards to seeing you in the game! (I’m CMDR BRABEN).


    RIGHT ON COMMANDER!

    Thanks David. Can you explain what that means as it's not 100% clear for me?

    Very nice trailer. Although I haven't seen any action like that But the exploration factor is still extremely rewarding. Not credit wise but fun wise. Its made exploration fun again!

    Do we get a steam key for us early backers or is it possible for the client running through steam to get updated,so it shows Horizons for us early backers.

    I think it probably means "Beta backers and pre-orderers"

    It more clearly shows it is a product being developed. Horizon 2.0 is released, but Horizon 'in general' is nkt finished so 'early access'. I think espescially the steam croud might appreciate the clarication.

    You certainly do. Anyone that purchases on our store will get steam keys once they are available.
