Gosh dang it! Just as I’d began the long and arduous journey out to Jacques station in the Colonia Nebula to see for myself what all the fuss was about, Frontier Developments announced the imminent launch of their next big update for space combat and trading sim Elite: Dangerous. Yes, beta testing for The Guardians (also known as ED 2.2), the third instalment of the Horizons season, should go live on Tuesday 20 September.
The Guardians will feature new game mechanics in the form of passenger travel, tourism and ship-launched fighters, as well as a plush new liner ship, the Beluga. Players can also look forward to a variety of quality-of-life improvements such as vessel transfer and module storage, the SIN broker, increased functionality for the system and galaxy maps, and revamped port interiors.
