Want to fly among the 400 billion stars of the Elite: Dangerous universe but worried your PC or laptop isn’t up to it? You’re in luck. Developer Frontier just made an announcement over at the Games Developer Conference that the space opera will be coming to Xbox One sometime next year (you don’t have an Xbox One, don’t you?).
It looks like the game will be complete and in pretty much unexpurgated form, with all the features in the PC version – it’s not clear yet whether the two versions can connect to the same servers for cross-platform play, though, although Xbox boss Phil Spencer was talking about Windows 10’s ability to do “Cross Play” sessions with the PC at the time of the announcement.
Other details – like exact release date – aren’t being revealed yet. The big question for me will be whether or not current Elite players will be able to play on Xbox One using their existing account details, or will they have to buy a second copy of the game?
