Mission System to be Significantly Revamped in Next Update

Mission System to be Significantly Revamped in Next Update - MMORPG.com

The Elite: Dangerous team has gone onto the game's official forums with an update that is packed with interesting tidbits of information.

First off the bat is the news that E:D is the number one selling game on Steam at the moment and that Frontier is looking into ways for players with desktop clients to be able to add the game to their Steam library rather than to have a separate client. There is no news about when this may happen.

In addition, the Mac client is underway and Frontier has indicated that there has been some valuable feedback from players that is being taken into account.

Lastly, the next update is to be called "Powerplay" and will be detailed in a couple of weeks. However, the main component of the update is the overhaul of the missions system.

One of the limitations of the current system is that missions tended to be a good option for starting players, but not so much for later on in the game. The overhaul will address this issue by making missions available for more experienced players as well as specific missions for higher ranks or status – such as being a Founder level member. The system will also expand the influence of reputation on missions to reward players who build a high reputation with minor factions.

Read the full update on the Elite: Dangerous forum.
