    Indeed... Looks like some Arena game play modes too?


    But is there the suggestion of content coming to the XBone before the PC? Prepare for the pitch forks given the game is only here because of the PC community kickstarting it!

    So Elite Dangerous: Horizons announced. This is basically planetary landings on objects with no atmostphere etc. Scheduled to be released around the end of the year...

    Personally unless it adds more/deeper mechanics I can't see it helping the game myself, which is in desperate need of deeper more varied stuff to do, and ideally deeper mechanics to start giving birth to emergent gameplay.

    They had a Livestream last night showing off some of what to expect with (no atmosphere) planetary surfaces in the forthcoming V2 ("Horizons") in a few months...

    A very interesting watch IMHO.

    Well, here's my "Distant Disc" mission video and notes... I believe I have reached the most distant systems from the core... It's my farewell nod to the game for a while I suspect...

    Note: This video will not play on a mobile device, or if you are in Germany! Sorry! It's because of the backing track I used...

    If you simply cannot watch the above version (on a PC) for some reason, here's an alternative with free music from youtube which therefore has no limitations on access - [click]

    For those of us who don't play Elite, what's a distant disc and the significance of it?

    No Man's Sky is released in 3 months I believe. I wish some aspects of this game and that game would mix.

    "I worked in a factory owned by Germans, at coal pits owned by Frenchmen, and at a chemical plant owned by Belgians. There I discovered something about capitalists. They are all alike, whatever the nationality. All they wanted from me was the most work for the least money that kept me alive. So I became a Communist." - Ники́та Серге́евич Хрущёв

    "Thanks for Playa Girón. Before the invasion, the revolution was weak. Now it's stronger than ever". - Che Guevara

    "The Distant Disc" is my attempt to reach the most distant systems from the galactic core...

    I believe I achieved it

    Read the missions notes if you want more a full run down of it - https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showth...1416&p=3548585




    NMS will be interesting to see...

    Well I'd have to say the latest 2.1 release hasn't been very successful. While it has improves some areas, its corner stone new gameplay, "The Engineers", IMHO is an over-bloated random-grind-fest introducing no real gameplay, but instead inane almost cynical new mechanics. It's actually driven me to stop playing!

    In truth, in the last year this game has moved forwards very little...

    Worrying!

    Been about a year since I last played. Can't see myself getting too bothered to try again TBH, unless something spectacular happens.

    Still think 'Star Citizen' is going to destroy this in short order.

    They just keep seeming to add more non-content? ie: Nothing that actually makes things deeper or more involved.

    The latest Engineers mechanics are basically a random-inane-click fest!

    They had a chance ot make a truly great game, slowly building and improving it... But they're blowing it!


    I don't know if it's the management or designers at fault... But someone is making bad bad choices!
