“Hyperspace Jump is Imminent.”
Elite Dangerous Fleet Carriers Update Available Now

The latest Elite Dangerous free update is out today for all PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 Players

Cambridge, UK – 9 June 2020. Frontier Developments plc (AIM: FDEV) announced today that, after two beta periods,  the Elite Dangerous Fleet Carriers free update is now available for PC, the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, and the Xbox One all-in-one games and entertainment system.

Fleet Carriers have arrived, and they bring all kinds of exciting possibilities for all Elite Dangerous Commanders. With a 500-light-year jump range, Fleet Carriers provide a new platform for deep-space exploration and long-range travel, equipped with every essential players could ever need. No matter where you are in space, you are home on a Fleet Carrier.

Check out the launch trailer, here:

Offering a range of on-board services, capabilities, and customisation options, Fleet Carriers are truly tailored to suit any play style, offering the ability to rearm, refuel, and repair on the go. They can be upgraded with a range of services, from Universal Cartographics and Outfitting, to your own personal Redemption Officer. Those extra amenities can make Fleet Carriers’ owners earn extra when visiting Commanders sell bonds, buy modules, and more.

Thanks to these mega ships’ 16 landing pads capacity, it has never been easier to organise a whole squadron of Commanders to explore the furthest reaches of space. Feet Carriers’ proprietors retain full landing clearance, having the last word about who has permission to come on-board. It is up to them to decide if they want to give refuge to wanted criminals or protect their good name.

Fleet Carriers, Elite Dangerous’ latest free update, is now available to all PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players.
