Elite Dangerous: Beyond - Chapter 4 has officially left its beta phase behind and is ready to roll starting December 11th. The announcement from Frontier Developments came along with a brand new trailer to show off some of the big features that will be part of the content update.
Players will find a pair of new ships, "a new discovery system for exploration, advanced mining techniques, additional multiplayer options" and more.
A new Analysis Mode, with the improved Exploration Discovery Scanner and Detailed Discovery Scanner, is a game-changing new way for all Commanders to explore the galaxy. After an initial scan of the system, players will then be able to tune their scanners to find stellar bodies and other phenomena. Not only is this new system a more realistic, satisfying and engaging exploration experience, but also provides players with the freedom to make more informed decisions on where to look next, and be ultimately better rewarded for time spent exploring. Additionally, Commanders will have probes that can be arced onto planetary surfaces, and planetary rings, to map them in detail, locate points of interest and leave their mark on the galaxy in a new way.
