On Saturday, at the Lavecon Elite Dangerous fan event, Frontier unveiled a number of new features coming to the game later this year in the September and December updates, including a new in-game currency and the much-anticipated first look at the Fleet Carrier.
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.
Check out the teaser below.
