According to Frontier, the open beta serves as a test period where the dev aims to gather feedback from players, providing them with "a chance to shape the update's development" in the process. Commanders will share their adventures - and rewards - with allies while working together to overcome unsafe obstacles.
Features to watch out for include advanced Trading Data with more information on the economy which will enable smoother deals and transactions. Moreover, "reworked planet rendering" tech will make everything look prettier. Improvements to Elite: Dangerous' engineering mechanics, mission rewards, and crime-and-punishment system are in the works, as well.
You'll also be able to hop into the new Chieftain, an Alliance warship that packs a meaty punch, while the GalNet Audio feature allows you to keep up to date with all the latest goings on in the game without having to leave the action, 'bringing the ongoing narrative to the foreground at a unsafe moment for humanity's pilots'. Beyond advances the ongoing player-driven narrative and introduces a variety of gameplay enhancements, upgrading the gameplay experience whether players prefer to trade, fight or explore in Elite Dangerous' massively multiplayer galaxy.
The developer adds that Elite Dangerous: Beyond-Chapter One will be free for PC players at some point in "Q1 2018". "Because of the huge number of core feature enhancements, the introduction of a new ship, and other numerous additions and improvements", explains Frontier, "we want to be sure that as many of you are able to experience and test the beta first-hand, for that reason we have chose to open this beta to all players of Elite Dangerous and Elite Dangerous: Horizons on PC".
Beyond is the name of Elite Dangerous's incoming season of content updates, and it differs substantially to the previous Horizons season.
Start with a small starship and a handful of credits, and do whatever it takes to earn the skill, knowledge, wealth and power to stand among the ranks of the Elite. Most players don't pay any attention to the game's news ticker right now. The game's first Beyond update enters beta January 25. Jurassic World Evolution is coming Summer 2018.
