Frontier announces Planetary Landings beta for Elite: Dangerous now starting, details upcoming DLC for Horizons in 2016
Frontier Developments has announced that the beta to test out the major new Planetary Landings feature of its Horizons Season Pass for Elite: Dangerous is now live.
Planetary Landings allows players to travel from space to the surface of a world, and then explore the world's land for the first time in Elite. They'll be able to fly over the surface in their spacecraft, then drop out a Scarab SRV (surface reconnaissance vehicle) and drive around the place - all in one continuous action, with no breaks or loading screens.
One of the major new features of the Horizons expansion to Elite: Dangerous is the ability to not only land your ship on bodies in deep space, but to also get out of the ship and explore. Frontier Developments released an excerpt from a recent live stream to show off both new aspects, as a developer took a circular tour of his landed Corvette on a small body.
Elite: Dangerous - Horizons is due to be released this coming Holiday 2015.
