This will be the next expansion to ED which is due to arrive in early 2021

 

Slowly it looks like ED is implementing SC style features into this game, will be interesting to see what exactly will be in this game. Still have yet to grab this one, will pick it up eventually during a steam sale at some point.

Took Frontier long enough!

<chortles>

I dreamed I saw the silver spaceships flying, in the yellow haze of the sun
There were children crying and colors flying, all around the chosen ones
All in a dream, all in a dream, the loading had begun
Flying Mother Nature's silver seed to a new home...

IIRC was this mentioned in the kickstarter and this feature should have been in the game years ago as in any of bigger budgets space sims, boots on the ground is now a required feature.

Wonder if they will allow this to be done on every planet like in NMS or if it will only be selected handcrafted planets. Now even though ED has been a little slow with implementing this more advanced features that were promised, they do have a solid base to work from. It seems from all the videos I have watched the space aspect of the game is solid and flushed out for the most part. So now working on more immersion is in order. I think SC should have done some of that instead of working on everything at the same time.

But with FD background with the Jurassic Park game they should be able to put together some first person style of gameplay and environments, but only time will tell. I am sure we will get a better trailer closer to xmas.

That would surprise me, but you never know!

Given that ED is more realistic you might see it on the odd planet in the goldilocks zone but I don't think they will be doing anything like the stuff you find in NMS.

I wonder if they Will be adding station interiors and city's to the game or will it just be outpost for teams to battle around.

They are definitely copying SC here, but they are doing it quicker with a smaller team heh

From what I have I read it's more NMS than SC as there's no in ship part you just land and then teleported out side of your ship like NMS and the base or station acts as a hub again like NMS.

Some gameplay footage of the FPS from the pre Alpha, looks very average and maybe a desert planet is not the best setting to showcase your game.

Ugh average is right .... but its alpha footage too but definitely looks like this won't be ready to the end of the year ... the ground combat has a lot of work to do to get that right.

New video of a station tour, still looking very generic, the footage looks like it could have come from any game made in the last ten years and for some odd reason I kept thinking X Rebirth.

Think they have charged that with all their expansions, best to wait 2 years then pick it up for a fiver after all their not at exactly doing anything that others have not done before.

It's a shame ED never grabbed me, as I had the lifetime expansion pass.

Looks like they have added in some Plants and did they pinch that scanner from Mass Effect?.
