David Braben has uploaded a short video showing an un-edited capture from Horizons expansion. But what else is preparing for the players?

The expansion should be release in winter 2015 and more updates later on in Q1 2016. 

There is a lot work ahead of the FRONTIER DEVELOPMENTS studio before we will be able to walk in our ships and have multi-crew but before we get these types of expansions let's have fun with planets!


You can also check these S4 "sentry" skimmers defending their territory against your assault. Prepare your skills and guns before you attack them :-).

And don't forget that there is going to be a $100,000 Clost Quarters Combat Tournament!

You can participate in the qualifying periods each month and compete against other players for a chance to win a free trip to the live final in the UK (flight and accommodation costs shall be covered).

There is still a lot of going on and the community is breathing and living with thousands of players.

And from our own personal point of view we dare to say that right now there is more fun to play Elite than Star Citizen. However both games must improve a lot to give fans and players all the toys they want. If you want to try just one game from these two tight competitors we recommend to go for Elite when the expansion is out. And right now you can still buy it with 10% discount.


Official information about the upcoming expansion:
