That’s right folks, I’m back with yet another article for your reading pleasure. This time I’ll be giving my thoughts on the trailer and info we currently have on the upcoming expansion Horizons for the popular online space simulator Elite: Dangerous created by Frontier Developments. Now keep in mind that I have not played Elite: Dangerous due to the game’s controls for mouse and keyboard are extremely confusing to me and so I’ve been waiting until I could get my hands on a HOTAS (Hand on Throttle and Stick). Despite not playing the game, I still have an extremely high interest in the future of Elite: Dangerous and that’s not going to stop me from talking about it. So before I get into the meat of my thoughts I’ll show you the first teaser for Elite: Dangerous – Horizons, enjoy.
Yeah, I know that isn’t much to go on especially since it is a “teaser”, but you have to admit that what we’ll get with Horizons could be huge and it gives me great hope for the future of Elite: Dangerous.
Now at the current moment we don’t have a whole lot of information. The information we do have (at least the information I could find) is that we will not have the ability to explore every type of planet, only rocky and uninhabited planets. I also believe it is limited to planets that have a minimal to no atmosphere. Personally I’m fine with that, I can definitely see that Frontier Developments is taking baby steps and I think they should. Elite: Dangerous may be available right now but Frontier Developments still shouldn’t rush its continued development. Regardless, I’m very pleased with the direction of Elite: Dangerous and I am definitely looking forward to what comes after the Horizons expansion.
So now that’s you’ve seen the teaser for Horizons, what do you think? Do you have any theories as to what will come next? Have you been playing Elite: Dangerous? Let us know in the comments.
