While Elite Dangerous, a fantastic space simulation title, is available on the PC and recently the Xbox One, the PS4 crowd has been left watching from the sidelines. Well, would be the case for much longer as Frontier Developments is bringing Elite Dangerous to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro sometime during Q2 2017.
‘We’re thrilled to bring Elite Dangerous to PlayStation 4,’ said Frontier CEO and Elite co-creator David Braben. ‘Elite Dangerous is unlike any other space game, with a rich multiplayer or single-player space, a true-to-life galaxy including our own entire night sky, real physics, unique ship handling characteristics and a player-driven narrative that’s really heating up. The galaxy has been stable for centuries, but all that is about to change. PlayStation 4 players will be joining our galaxy at a very exciting time.’
When Elite Dangerous arrives on the PlayStation 4, it will include all of the content currently available, including the Horizon Season Pass. The game will also include some specific PlayStation 4 feature such as Touch Navigation – which lets you use the DualShock 4 touch to navigate your path, Fast Headlook – lets you look onto an enemy much faster during combat and Extra Control – a feature that lets you add hotkeys to the DualShock 4 touch pad.
PlayStation4 Pro players will further benefit from enhanced performance throughout Elite Dangerous. No word if it will support the PlayStation VR as of yet.
