Powerplay Update Launches

Posted by Suzie Ford on Jun 05, 2015  | Comments

Powerplay Update Launches - MMORPG.com

The Elite: Dangerous servers have been updated with the massive content patch called "Powerplay". Powerplay includes new ships, new game mechanics and a new strategic component and is considered the largest update thusfar in the game's history.

Players will be able to align with one of three intergalactic powers in an effort to dominate and control space. Once aligned, players will be able to help accomplish group goals, earn reputation and to advance the shared cause.

Power organizations may be more warlike or more pacifistic. Players can opt for the one that best suits their style and participation is fully optional via a special tab on the galaxy map. The map will further give information about the balance of control overall and which Power is currently exerting the most influence on human controlled space.

  • An enhanced mission system with new objectives and new ways to play.
  • Three new ships: the Lakon Diamondback Scout, Lakon Diamondback Explorer and the Imperial Courier.
  • Drones for cargo collection, fuel trading and prospecting.
  • A new illustrated GalNet newsfeed, accessible directly in players’ ship UI.
  • High and low intensity mining sites, adding risk to mining and increasing potential rewards.
  • New minable commodities.
  • An updated bounty system.
  • Upgraded UI and animated emblems for ranking up.
  • Numerous other improvements to gameplay and performance.

Read the full changelog on the Elite: Dangerous forum.
