Good news for players wanting more ways to team up in Elite Dangerous with “The Commanders” (2.3) update now due to go live in the week ending April 16th.
With features including an avatar creator (called “Holo-Me”), multicrew vessels, megaships (think flying space stations), asteroid bases, ship naming and maybe even some news regarding what those alien ruins and vessels are doing too.
I’m sure there’s more to it than that and I’m looking forward to finding out soon. Being able to jump into a friend’s ship and help out on missions or see some new sights without the need for long travel times could introduce more people to a game that can be intimidating at times.
As usual we’ll post up the release notes as soon as Frontier has them up on their forums.
