Elite Dangerous: Beyond - Chapter Four Next Week

Frontier Developments announces Elite Dangerous: Beyond - Chapter Four gets underway a week from tomorrow on December 11th as a free update for the Windows, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 space shooter. They this is the biggest content update for the game this year, adding two new ships, a new discovery system for exploration, advanced mining techniques, additional multiplayer options, and more. They offer this trailer to show off what's new, and provide more details on the plan to satisfy our curiosity:
A new Analysis Mode, with the improved Exploration Discovery Scanner and Detailed Discovery Scanner, is a game-changing new way for all Commanders to explore the galaxy. After an initial scan of the system, players will then be able to tune their scanners to find stellar bodies and other phenomena. Not only is this new system a more realistic, satisfying and engaging exploration experience, but also provides players with the freedom to make more informed decisions on where to look next, and be ultimately better rewarded for time spent exploring. Additionally, Commanders will have probes that can be arced onto planetary surfaces, and planetary rings, to map them in detail, locate points of interest and leave their mark on the galaxy in a new way.

New mining tools and mechanics provide a fresh, potentially lucrative mining experience for all Elite Dangerous Commanders. Miners can investigate rings to locate the best spots to start their mining sessions and identify mineral deposits within individual asteroids. Then, with the right amount of skill, can coordinate a detonation.

Squadrons is a new in-game way of uniting like-minded Commanders to support factions of their choice, take part in Community Goals together and compete for top spots in weekly leaderboards. Squadrons also feature new communication tools, including in-game chat channels, to coordinate activities across the galaxy.

Additionally, Beyond - Chapter Four also features a new lighting engine, numerous visual improvements, background simulation updates, and a number of cockpit interface changes to improve the flying experience of players.

Hey, you play a lot of space games. Got a VR headset yet? It's a totally different experience.
I am skeptical it is something I'd like. But to even try it I'd probably need to upgrade my system which recently passed its sixth birthday. So, I might give it a try when I finally acquiesce and buy a new computer.

If I said I disliked 3d film technology would that give any indication towards my reception of current VR techs?

ED works flawlessly on my GTX 670, 6 years old at this point. And it's just the most amazing thing to have the cockpit and outer space filling up your entire view. Landings and maneuvering are totally different when you can simply invert with the space station above you, pull up, and gently align with the docking port. Whereas on the monitor it feels like playing a game, in VR it feels like you're in the world. Just flying around is immensely satisfying.

As for the comparison to films, it's not really apt I feel, because you're interacting within the space not just passively viewing. Maybe you can find someone locally who can let you try it out. Or I think I heard you can try out PSVR at Best Buy?
