Greetings Commanders

We are excited to announce that the Fleet Carriers Update - Beta 2 will run from 11 May to 26 May, starting and ending at 11:00 AM (UTC).

We've very excited to bring you this beta, which is coming to you on all platforms for the very first time. Whether you're on PC, PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, you'll be able to take part!

As a reminder we will be using the saved game data from the live game taken from 30 April (remember what happens in the beta stays in the beta!).

PC Commanders will be able to join the beta following these steps:
  1. Open Steam (If you use the Elite Dangerous launcher skip to step 4).
  2. Open Elite Dangerous in your library.
  3. Select 'Elite Dangerous: Horizons' on the Steam launcher (even if you don't own Horizons, Horizons will be enabled in the beta build).
  4. When the Elite Dangerous launcher is loaded, log in to your account if you aren't already logged in.
  5. On the launcher window you will notice several options; Elite Dangerous: Horizons, Elite Dangerous: Fleet Carriers Update Beta 2 (Horizons), Elite Dangerous etc.
  6. Select Elite Dangerous: Fleet Carriers Update Beta 2 (Horizons).
If you are planning to jump into the Fleet Carriers Update - Beta 2 on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, here is how you can register your account for participation:
  1. Via a web browser go to
  2. Log in using your PlayStation Network, or Xbox One account.
    1. (If you were previously a beta player for Elite Dangerous on Xbox One you will not be able to redeem an additional beta key. You should instead re-download the beta application from your “Full Library” inside “My Games and Apps”).
  3. Follow the steps to generate a code.
  4. Redeem the code on your console of choice, starting from 11 May.

WARNING: The beta will not be live until 11 May. Redeeming the code before this date, will download an older version of the beta. This is not accessible and will fail to connect, however, your beta application will automatically update with the Fleet Carriers Beta 2 on May 11.

We will be announcing more information on the changes and improvements that we have made thanks to your feedback in the near future.

Excellent Thanks stephen

Regarding fleet carrier refuelling. As an additional alternative to mining, could there be tritium fuel scoops available for ships? For collection at certain stars for then transferring over to the fleet carrier fuel tanks?
