Elite Dangerous To Make Its Console Debut On Xbox One
Elite Dangerous is making its console debut on Xbox One this summer, Frontier has announced.
The epic space exploration sim will apparently offer the same “complete and authentic” experience as found on the PC version, which is seriously impressive news.
Frontier has also promised that the Xbox One version won’t be “dumbed down,” which is seriously impressive – considering how complex Elite Dangerous actually is.
Interestingly, Frontier has also teased that Xbox One owners will share the same “overarching narrative and galaxy state” as PC players. This will let all players contribute to “the wars, power struggles and Community Goals across the galaxy”.
“Xbox players have supported Frontier well over the years, and thanks to games like Zoo Tycoon and ScreamRide we know the hardware well, so Xbox One is a natural fit for Elite: Dangerous’ console debut,” said Frontier founder David Braben.
“Elite: Dangerous on Xbox One will be the complete and authentic Elite: Dangerous experience. It will not be ‘dumbed down’. We’ll be working with an all-new audience, but that doesn’t mean a change in direction for the game, and nor does it mean slowing development on the PC version. The second of our updates – Wings – is being beta tested by some of you right now, and the third will be coming in the spring, free of charge. We’ll be talking more about the third major update – Powerplay – soon!”
While a firm release date or price hasn’t been nailed down, we are told that Elite Dangerous will be making its way to Xbox One this summer.
