About This Game
Elite Dangerous: Horizons is the second season of content for Elite Dangerous, the definitive massively multiplayer space epic.
It starts with Planetary Landings, an unprecedented, vast new experience that lets you journey seamlessly from space to any point on the surfaces of accurately simulated planets and moons throughout Elite Dangerous’ multi-player, cut-throat, full scale re-creation of the 34th century Milky Way galaxy.
Coast over mountaintops, dive into canyons and drive the new Scarab SRV wheeled vehicle. Each 1:1 scale world offers incredible vistas and plentiful gameplay opportunities; Discover valuable resources, experience deadly combat encounters, raid bases, scout crash sites and co-operate with other players, both on the planet surface and flying high above.
Planetary Landings is just the first of a full Elite Dangerous: Horizons season of expansions; throughout the season Horizons players will also get – free of additional cost – other massive new expansions dedicated to gameplay, community, and narrative including:
- Loot and Crafting, unlocking a world of customization options and adding new value and meaning to every action.
- Multi-crew, allowing teams of players to assume roles aboard the same ship.
- Commander Creation, giving a unique appearance to players’ in-game avatars.
- Ship-Launched Fighters, allowing larger spacecraft to carry their own short-range fighter ships for attack and defense.
Elite Dangerous: Horizons is fully back & forward compatible with Elite Dangerous (season one) – everyone plays together in the same galaxy.
It gives new players access to Elite Dangerous and all the expansions in Elite Dangerous: Horizons for one price. A discount for existing Elite Dangerous players is automatically applied.
Starting with only a small starship and a few credits, do whatever it takes to earn the skill, knowledge, wealth and power to survive in an incredible, cut-throat galaxy in an age of galactic superpowers and interstellar war, and rise to the ranks of the iconic Elite.
Every player’s actions influence the unique connected gaming experience and evolving interactive narrative as governments fall, battles are lost and won, and humanity’s frontier is reshaped.
