Xbox One owners are in for a treat again because Elite Dangerous: Horizons is coming to Xbox One on June 3. The Engineers expansion lands on PC earlier, on May 26.

Elite Dangerous: Horizons for Xbox One features the first two Horizons expansions, Planetary Landings and The Engineers. This combo offers players a wide range of new features including 1:1 scale planets to explore, surface bases to raid, new missions, new crafting opportunities, and the high-speed SRV Surface Recon Vehicle.

The Engineers version will land for the first time on PC on May 26 and will bring many customization options that change the way you fly, trade, explore and fight in the Elite Dangerous galaxy. Each Engineer has a unique personality and history, each using unique weapons and specialized modules. They prefer to remain hidden on planet surfaces across the galaxy and are willing to help you if you pay the right price.

On the same day, the game’s developer will also release its biggest ever free update for all Elite Dangerous fans, introducing a new mission system alongside a plethora of gameplay additions and tweaks. Xbox One players will also enjoy extra features such as the Private Group play and fully customizable controls.

This is only the beginning as the game developer promises to roll out updates constantly:

Elite Dangerous: Horizons players on PC and Xbox One will receive further expansions as the season continues. Future gameplay updates will debut for PC and Xbox One simultaneously, enriching the Elite Dangerous experience with new activities and new ways to play on both platforms, including:

  • Multicrew, allowing teams of players to assume roles aboard the same ship.

  • Commander Creation, giving a unique appearance to players’ in-game avatars.

  • Ship-Launched Fighters, allowing larger spacecraft to carry their own short-range fighter craft for attack and defense.

Elite Dangerous: Horizons for Xbox One will be available as an upgrade to Elite Dangerous for $29.99/£19.99/€24.99, and packaged with Elite Dangerous as part of the Xbox One Commander Deluxe edition for $59.99/£39.99/€49.99/.
