The latest update for Elite Dangerous: Horizons, titled The Commanders, is now available for both PC and Xbox One. The update packs in a ton of tweaks and features, but the biggest are probably the new multicrew co-op feature and Holo-Me avatar creator.
The Commanders update comes at a critical time in the plot of Elite Dangerous as well:
Multicrew co-op will let groups of player fly on the same ship, each filling in specialized roles as a pilot, gunner, or fighter. Meanwhile, the Holo-Me avatar creator lets you customize your commander with unique facial features and physical appearances. Horizons' 2.3 update also comes alongside the free 1.8 gameplay update, which adds megaships, ship naming, and more for all players.
The full release notes, which include details on a new camera suite for taking screenshots and video, are rather expansive. If you're down for a deep dive, you can check out all of the changes in full at the Elite Dangerous forums.
