While Chapter Four of Elite Dangerous: Beyond continues its way through beta testing, another Livestream popped up not long ago that had something new on the Thargoid front with the alien race becoming more visible thanks to their own conflict zones being added.
For those unfamiliar with the game, conflict zones are areas in a solar system where two opposing factions at war will face off against each other. Players can choose to be aligned with one and earn combat bonds by destroying opposing NPC and player ships. For anyone wanting to jump into the deep end of ship combat it’s the place to be. With the new update this will be expanded to include zones that are Thargoid occupied offering additional opportunities to encounter their vessels. For systems with stations under attack, expect to see more of them.
The full Livestream is below for anyone curious to see how it might play out when the update finally arrives and also acts as a Q&A on the current state of things on the beta too.
Elite Dangerous is out now for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Beyond Chapter Four is still in beta and is expected to arrive before the end of year.
