Frontier Developments announced today that the Horizons expansion will become part of the base Elite Dangerous game on October 27th. This means that all Elite Dangerous players will receive the content from the Horizons Season Pass for free (planetary landings, ship-launched fighters and multicrew cooperative action, among others). Fans who already owned the Horizons expansion will receive the Azure paint job, which is compatible with all the ships currently available in the game.
Change the galaxy with the Elite Dangerous: Horizons Season Pass. Explore the surfaces of countless worlds today, and unlock new ways to play in five themed expansions.
2.0 – Planetary Landings
A whole new angle on the galaxy. Journey from the stars to the surfaces of strange worlds, and hit the ground running in the new Scarab Surface Recon Vehicle.
