Elite Dangerous: Horizons Early Access

Steam News announces the launch of Elite Dangerous: Horizons as an early access release, saying: "Elite Dangerous: Horizons is a new season of major expansions for the incredible, connected, player-driven Elite Dangerous galaxy. Blaze a new trail starting now with Planetary Landings - Loot & Crafting, Multi-crew, Commander Creation and more to come." Here's more on those landings:

It starts with Planetary Landings, an unprecedented, vast new experience that lets you journey seamlessly from space to any point on the surfaces of accurately simulated planets and moons throughout Elite Dangerous’ multi-player, cut-throat, full scale re-creation of the 34th century Milky Way galaxy.

Coast over mountaintops, dive into canyons and drive the new Scarab SRV wheeled vehicle. Each 1:1 scale world offers incredible vistas and plentiful gameplay opportunities; Discover valuable resources, experience deadly combat encounters, raid bases, scout crash sites and co-operate with other players, both on the planet surface and flying high above.

A couple of weeks ago you could pre-order Horizons with a discount if you owned the base game. It coincided with the Steam sale, so made scooping them both up a no-brainer.

For half the cost of a subscription based MMO you get an MMO that lets you decide whether you just want to play Solo, Play only with friends, or jump into the community populated area -- whichever suits your mood at any time.

I sure as heck don't have a problem paying the seasonal amount for Horizons with the current and planned features over the next year. Then the user discount will be available for the next season.

And my MMO fix will only cost me about 5 bucks a month. And I'm finding this a lot more fun than Eve. It's not flawless, and still needs some features like an in-game trade calucator (rather than third party), but solid and fun.
