Today, Frontier Developments launched Elite: Dangerous' latest expansion, Beyond: Chapter One, on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4. Chapter One is free to all Elite: Dangerous players and greatly enhances the game.
The title supports Xbox One X so it should look even better on Microsoft's new console with the upcoming changes. If you love space simulators in which you can practically do anything you want, then be sure to give this one a go. Elite: Dangerous is supremely rewarding even though it takes dozens of hours to master.
Chapter One advances the ongoing player-driven narrative and introduces a variety of gameplay enhancements, upgrading the experience whether players prefer to trade, fight or explore in Elite: Dangerous' massively multiplayer galaxy. Going beyond the Thargoid alien attack of last season, Chapter One enhances the existing gameplay experience by bringing a host of new content for commanders to enjoy while they cruise the galaxy.
Aside from changes to the engineering mechanics, mission rewards, and the crime system, the game's visuals are also getting an upgrade. The developer has reworked the planet rendering technology in its game engine. This should result in more realistic and beautiful graphics especially when it comes to approaching planets. In Chapter One, vibrant surface colors better reflect planetary geological properties. Hopefully these enhancements will be noticeable even to the untrained eye.
