Frontier Developments has just published a video that no Oculus Rift owner (present or future) should miss, as they show us the detailed interior of the Elite Dangerous cabins. With the DK2 we will be able to contemplate them in all their splendor without leaving the seat, but thanks to the absolute positioning we will be able to touch or get the presence.
Along with this video, they also give us some news about the future of the game. The launch is still scheduled for the end of this year, but they have already specified some details about the expansions or DLCs, details that we more or less already knew. The first thing is that there will be free updates for all users from time to time, but important updates will have to be paid separately, except for those who have participated in the alpha or the Premium beta, or those who have already purchased the Expansion Pass.
The possibility of landing on the planets will not be limited to landing the ship on a platform, since there will be very rich contents on the surface of the planets such as vehicles, reserve warehouses and places to explore. The planetary surfaces will have a mixture of procedurally generated scenarios, especially landscapes and clouds, and other areas created by hand with great detail.
Another of the improvements that will be available in these expansions is the possibility of walking around the interior of the cabin of our ships, in addition to walking around the interior of the space stations and interacting with other players and NPCs. They have even confirmed that it will be possible to board other players’ ships in space and take them by force. At Frontier Developments they have tremendous confidence that Elite Dangerous is going to surprise us and become a title that we will play regularly for many years, and if they continue to adjust to the dates and deadlines with the same rigor as until now, they will set a dangerous precedent for the competition.
