Today, we’re going to focus on Edward Lewis and the Elite: Dangerous livestream in order to gather as much information as possible. Numerous guests are coming to discuss about the game during the live.

First of all, the livestream will be ongoing for 24h, I will regularly update this article.

Here are the information gathered from the livestream:

  • Atmospheric planets and Space legs – There are a lot of things they would like to do. It’s quite easy to animate a character, however it is relatively more complex to give it a context and rich content. It will not be coming shortly, but don’t hold your breath, there are plenty of amazing things to come first!
  • Alliance – The Alliance might get Military Ranks in the future.
  • Alliance – Yes, Alliance Love is coming. Not shortly though.
  • Multicrew – The Multicrew will be enabled with small ships as well, like the Cobra MkIII, however it is funnier in bigger ships… as they have a lot of guns! *wink*
  • Multicrew – David Braben saw a Multicrew Python and it is impressive.
  • Stations – Stations in asteroids is confirmed.
  • Ships – New ships are coming (Added to the Dolphin and Panther Clipper maybe)
  • Ships – Specific ships for the Alliance? There are plenty of independent ships created in the Alliance’s shipyards. We could consider them as Alliance ships.
