Not true. Current gen consoles are powerful enough. They're basically fine-tuned mid-range PCs

To reiterate, when the next gen consoles launch, the next "Era" of Elite could be their killer app at launch.

While I'd think Frontier certainly has the next gen consoles in consideration it's probably not the only one behind the 2020 major milestones update. The next phase of ED's 10-year planning has been in mind for a long time. There were going to be continued seasons past Horizons. So it's a good sign FD re-invested and committed to the next major updates where much of the sales (and player activity) have been also on the pc platform besides the consoles, and they've always endeavored to keep ED as an MMO shared verse.  I'd think while ED 2020 would be sure to work on next gen consoles arriving with improved graphics, as long as the PS4 still has a decent playerbase, ED will be maintained on it also, similar to how ED versions are maintained among PS4, PS4Pro & XBox1.

Not even slightly. Dwarf fortress is an order of magnitude “harder”. There are some platform games that are designed to be “hard” and require perfect timing and great skill.

E:D, in general is a space trading simulator with a reasonable tutorial. read manga Where is gets difficult is learning where all the controls are and knowing when to use them. This can be helped with the use of a flight control stick and throttle and is a natural fit for VR.
Yeah, we just lol at those guys now. Meanwhile ED is continuing to move on as a working game.

Elite Dangerous just pissed all over Star Citizen. Again.

Star Citizen isn't a game. It's a TV show about a bunch of characters making a game. It's basically "This is Spinal Tap" - except people think the band is real.

Oh yeah, when fleet carriers were delayed from the Beyond updates last year, there was so much flak from the impatient and the trollish remarks saying FDev were worse than CIG, Lol. When the actuality was FDev and Frontier work on Elite:Dangerous realistically and if something doesn't make their projected release announcements, they just quietly continue to work on it realistically with their time and resources, not have half the company about marketing shenanigans and ponzi fund raising.

The fleet carriers seem to be more like unflyable space bases for now, but I think it's going to be a huge step for player persistent assets in the massive scope of the ED modeled galaxy infrastructure. And it's still free with the horizons update dlc since it's not part of the upcoming 2020 major updates. Once they add a degree of spacelegs to the mix and overall game, it's going to set another pioneering & innovation game industry bar record again, truly the "bdssgem".

 :emot-lol:  In OA's video (www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ny7PxaS-Nog) about ED and the news about Fleet Carriers being delayed until Q2 2020, the CIG shills made a desperate attempt to flood the yt comments about how "good" SC Alpha 3.8 was doing now. And of course how ED was dying and was DOA all this time. Obviously desperately spamming the thread, trying to get more sci-fi gamers to fund the new season of the sc  burnt pitted dumpster ponzi, to lead to buying more .jpg ships. Pathetic.

Funny to see an observer balk at the $1k priced ships for sale at the end anyways, lol.

Dear CRoberts,

It's time to throw down, or shut down. A $40 expansion to your near $400,000,000 shit show is now about to face very real competition.

Beat me to it. YESSS!! congrats Frontier! I knew they would come through. All that focus on cross dev mentioned when they were hiring for coding and rendering JWE, PZ etc. And only 5 year in the 10 year planning. So much impatient whinging and even hate at FDev all these years, some of it no doubt shilled by the ponzi SC boondogle. Absolutely, this is quite a solid nail in the expensive coffin of SC's rotting corpse. Hope you include this development in your anniversary blog update Derek.

O7!!

Buur Pit second video on the ED:Odyssey news. Extra new concept art shown by Frontier to the "main press":  from 4:38



https://imgur.com/a/iuv5V1i ("ship interiors", "installations", "npc vendors", "spaceport lounges", "stores", etc.  = death of sc ponzi  :emot-lol:)


More fuel for the dumpster fire/sludge of the sc ponzi.

The odyssey expansion looks to me like a base for which to build more content off. This is far from complete. They'll add more and  more like they did with Horizons and Beyond.

For sure, besides the "first steps" which should be plenty of new content for a paid update,  it's still year 5 or 6  of the 10 year planning and Braben said a couple of years ago that they anticipate continuing on with ED even after that. FDev had always planned to continue with the rest of the preconcepts since ks as well as the legacy, stories, and lore of Elite since Elite 2: Frontier, expanding to adventures outside of the ship along with atmospheric landable worlds. With the success of JWE and now PZ, and reportedly about close to up to a hundred staff tasked for ED among their cross-dev efforts, things look bright for the future of ED. imo ED was never abandoned, just that it realistically took longer for such a massively scaled complex sim, some delays such as the ps4 port, and will continue to be their flagship game in spirit for many years to come.

"Elite Dangerous (Steam) just set a new 4½ year record for concurrent CMDRs - the highest since Nov 2015's ATH"
https://www.reddit.com/r/EliteDangerous/comments/h7qzfc/elite_dangerous_steam_just_set_a_new_4%C2%BD_year/


Nice, so much for naysaying and sc shilling calling ED a "dead game".
