When asked, Ive said wed be mad not to consider bringing Elite: Dangerous to console. Well, that madness is about to end! Today were announcing that we will be bringing the full Elite: Dangerous to Xbox One this year. 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.

Elite: Dangerous on Xbox One will be the complete and authentic Elite: Dangerous experience. It will not be "dumbed down". Well be working with an all-new audience, but that doesnt 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. Well be talking more about the third major update Powerplay soon!

More players across more formats means we can devote more resources to development. The more players we have, the better the game will become. Elite: Dangerous is a living game and it will keep growing on all our formats so long as people are excited to play it.

Im also pleased to announce PC, Mac and Xbox One players will all share the same overarching narrative and galaxy state. That means even more players contributing to the wars, power struggles and Community Goals across the galaxy.

If you want to keep up to date on our Xbox One release you can sign up to be kept informed at [url="http://www.elitedangerous.com/xboxone"]http://www.elitedangerous.com/xboxone[/url] .

With the new Mac and Xbox One players joining us well see new faces on the forums and we hope youll make them feel welcome. The Elite: Dangerous community has always been strong, and Im sure itll be even stronger the more it grows.

Thanks for playing, and Right On, Commanders.

David

Thoughts?

I'll be honest. Speaking as someone who bought the game for the Offline Mode which was officially cancelled a week before beta, and is still annoyed about the way in which that came about I have very mixed feelings about this.

Cool hopefully will create some new space sim nerds like us thumbsup

I also heard Wasteland 2 is coming to PS4, so maybe these will introduce the younger console generation to the turn based tactics and simming which most of us grew up on, I know War Thunder does pretty well on PS4.
