The awesome Elite Dangerous space trading and combat game that launched after a successful Kickstarter campaign that raised its developers Frontier Developments, a massive £1,578,316 thanks to over 26,000 backers.
Will soon be releasing the third major content update to the Elite Dangerous game that will coincided with the highly anticipated launch of the game on to the Mac and Xbox One platforms.
As the name suggests the new Elite Dangerous PowerPlay update brings “Powers” to the game allowing players work for one of these Powers, gaining perks, reputation bonuses and credits. Sandro Sammarco lead designer at Frontier Developments explains :
“If you choose to participate in Powerplay, it will add a whole new dimension to Elite: Dangerous,”-“These powers have their own ethos and methods. How they take control of systems varies depending on whether they favour warlike or more pacifist methods. Some will conquer systems with economics, others by just sending in the troops. Either way, you can be part of that.”
“If a major economic Power sends in their traders for a financial takeover against a military powerhouse, the other side may be tasked with piracy missions to destroy or loot their cargo,”-“You can always be a trader or a miner or a pirate for your own ends, but by joining a Power you’ll be afforded special rights and be rewarded for playing the way you already like to play.”
