2.4 The Return: The Type-10 Defender

Greetings Commanders,

The Thargoid threat is rising. We’re receiving reports of attacks on space stations and devastation across the galaxy. Commanders have been requested to embark on dangerous rescue attempts to shuttle survivors away from the menace.

There’s no doubt that we’ve got a difficult task ahead. But it’s not over yet… With the urgent need for new weaponry apparent, the Alliance Navy has commissioned Lakon Spaceways to overhaul the Type-9, in response to recent events.

The result of this collaboration is the new Type-10 Defender, a military behemoth specifically built for combat and absorbing heavy hits. It’s available now from most Alliance-controlled, high-tech systems.

What are you waiting for, Commander?

Happy Holidays – Let’s Look Beyond to 2018

Greetings Commanders,

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who donated, watched, or sent their messages of support during this year’s 24 hour livestream. We were absolutely blown away by your generosity, as we managed to reach an incredible £54,000 for SpecialEffect before the day finished!

We’re busy uploading some of the highlights for you now, and will let you know when they go up on our YouTube channel. Some of my personal highlights included watching David Braben punch the air with glee as he managed to dock in the original Elite, Zac Antonaci having his insectoid supper, and the two hour EDRPG session.

As in previous years, the 24 hour stream is a nice way to round off the livestream schedule for the year, so I wanted to drop you a note about the streams and other communication coming in early 2018.

Firstly we’ll be continuing the Focused Feedback Forum[forums.frontier.co.uk] posts about the features coming to the Beyond Series of updates. We’ve been thrilled with your constructive feedback so far, and wanted to carry on in the same way. In the new year we’ll make new posts relating to the other features in the Beyond series of updates, including Squadrons and more. We’ll also be continuing the livestreams that run alongside these forum posts, where we’ll be joined by Sandro Sammarco to talk about the feedback and explain the initial pitch and concept for the feature in detail.

Discovery Scanner will continue in to 2018, which is our livestream series that goes behind the scenes of the creation of Elite Dangerous. Previously we looked at the creation of the Thargons with Mark Allen and how the Galaxy was brought to life with the Stellar Forge by Dr Anthony Ross. We have a selection of topics ready to discuss, but I’d also love to know who you would love to hear from! Put your suggestions for future episodes in the thread below… and we’ll see what we can do!

The Beyond Series of updates begins in Q1 2018 and is free to all owners of Elite Dangerous: Horizons. As with our other content updates in 2.4, we’ll be ramping up to the launch with livestreams, images and video on social media and blog posts here on the forum. We’re looking forward to showing you what’s coming in the first of the Beyond Series of updates, and show you some in-game examples in the lead up to launch.

In the meantime, please continue enjoying 2.4, as there’s more to come… I’ve heard some nasty explosions coming from the Pleiades… what’s all that about?

Thanks again, from me and the community team, for another amazing year… here’s to many more.

Commanders, we need your help!

Thargoids have attacked stations around the Pleiades and there are thousands of stranded civilians! Any available ships, head to The Oracle (Pleiades Sector IR-W D1-55), Titan’s Daughter (Taygeta) and Liman Legacy (HIP 16753) and save them. Please.
