The team at Frontier Developments have announced that beginning on October 23, a staged beta for “Beyond – Chapter Four” will be available to all PC Elite Dangerous and Elite Dangerous: Horizons players – giving the chance to get “hands on” with all the key aspects of the update.

The final chapter in the Beyond season, and the largest Elite Dangerous update of the year, arrives in 2018 with new, significant additions to exploration, mining, multiplayer and more. Elite Dangerous: Beyond – Chapter Four provides all-new features and upgrades for every Commander, all completely free to every Elite Dangerous and Elite Dangerous: Horizons player on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

For those who can not wait and want a first glimpse at Beyond – Chapter Four, then the latest trailer should sate at least some of those urges – lets watch the announcement trailer, shall we…
