Elite Dangerous Getting New Currency and Carriers

At their Lavecon gathering this weekend, Frontier Developments announced details about September and December updates coming to Elite Dangerous, their space exploration and combat game. The September update will bring a new "in ship" starter experience for new players, a new livery system, and a new virtual currency called Arx which can be earned in-game or purchased with cash. The December update will add a new Fleet Carrier system shown off in this teaser trailer. Details on both updates can be found in this post and more on the new currency system are in a new Arx FAQ. Here's word on the new starter experience:
A whole new starting experience right from the cockpit of a Commander's first ship. With clearer instructions and guidance during the beginning of Elite Dangerous, the new starting flow should provide a more engaging way to learn the basics on their way to becoming fully-fledged pilots.

At the start of the experience, commanders will be guided through essential pilot training by a flight instructor from the Pilots Federation. During this training, a number of lessons will be taught to commanders, from space flight to combat.

  • Basic flight controls and scanning.
  • Supercruise and navigation.
  • A combat exercise around a megaship.
  • Culminating with the final lesson: completing a first Hyperspace Jump and docking at a Starport.

All of the training will include VO across supported languages. Veteran Commanders out there who wish to experience the training will also be able to access it in the 'Training Section' via the right-hand panel of their cockpit.

My biggest gripe is that FDevs constantly take back seat, ppl just flown to the end of the galaxy to find nothing but dirt. There were no lore bread crumbs, no answers to any of the lore questions, bah, there was no participation from the devs at any levels whatsoever.

Hats off to the DW2 organizers, they did an amazing job making this journey happen.

They really need better in-game community planning.. they are trying right now somewhat but my god they suck at it.

They can't even design a satisfying reward loop outside of piloting.. you think they should try crafting community events? Honestly be happy they don't get involved more.

Let us know when Sandro has been fired, then it might be worth another look. Until then enjoy the RNG pretending to be a game.
