At the Lavecon Elite Dangerous event today, attendees got their first look at where the game is headed for the rest of 2019 – with details on what’s being added to the game in the big September and December updates, and a new trailer for the latest big addition to the Elite universe: Fleet Carriers.
We’ve known that Elite Dangerous would be getting these giant Fleet Carriers for almost two years now, and this is our first confirmation of a release date for these player-owned mobile bases. They were originally due to release as part of the squadrons update last year but were apparently delayed. The Fleet Carriers will now be added as part of the December 2019 update for the game, and that’s just one of the additions developer Frontier showed off at Lavecon.
Frontier also revealed what players can expect in the September update. This will include a brand new starting experience to get players introduced to Elite Dangerous more naturally, and the addition of a virtual currency called Arx across all platforms – including the PC version.
