Elite: Dangerous is coming to PlayStation 4 next year

Elite: Dangerous

Space-faring title Elite: Dangerous has been available on PC and Xbox One for a long while now, but PS4 users will be able to get in on the action next year.

Frontier Development has confirmed that the game will be coming to PS4 in Q2 2017 and will feature “every major expansion and the complete Elite Dangerous: Horizons season pass”.

The space-faring game has you travelling to over 400 billion star systems in the Milky Way, using NASA data to replicate many real star systems and planets. Players can choose to make cash by trading, exploring systems, engaging in combat or fulfilling contracts at various orbital outposts.

Although the base game doesn’t allow you to explore planets, the Horizons expansion brings support for orbiting and landing on rocky worlds, among other new features.

Elite: Dangerous will take advantage of the PS4 Pro hardware as well

What should players expect from the PS4 version then?

The PS4 touchpad will be used for quickly swiping through the Milky Way map, but players can add four customisable shortcuts to the touchpad as well.

Got a PS4 Pro? Then you can look forward to “enhanced performance” with Elite: Dangerous.

It’s unclear whether PlayStation VR support will be coming to the game though, especially when it already supports VR via the HTC Vive and other headsets.
