Elite: Dangerous will make its “console debut” on Xbox one this summer, Microsoft boss Phil Spencer announced at the Game Developers Conference.
The Xbox One version will include all content added to the PC version by February’s ‘Community Goals’ content update and ‘March’s Wings’ content update, due out next week on PC.
The space adventure game is developed by Frontier Developments, which has worked with Microsoft Studios in the past on games like Kinectimals, Zoo Tycoon, and most recently, Screamride. Find a rundown of the game below.
Elite: Dangerous is the critically acclaimed third sequel to the genre-defining Elite, created in 1984 by David Braben and Ian Bell. Elite: Dangerous brings gaming’s original open world adventure into the modern generation with a connected galaxy, evolving narrative and the entirety of the Milky Way re-created at its full galactic proportions.
Starting with only a small starship and a few credits, players do whatever it takes to earn the skill, knowledge, wealth and power to survive in a futuristic cutthroat galaxy and to stand among the ranks of the iconic Elite. In an age of galactic superpowers and interstellar war, every player’s story influences the unique connected gaming experience and handcrafted evolving narrative. Governments fall, battles are lost and won, and humanity’s frontier is reshaped, all by players’ actions.
More details on the Xbox One version will be announced at a later date.
