ELITE DANGEROUS 2.3 THE COMMANDERS

4 posts in this topic

The Commanders Update 2.3 will be going live today! The Elite Dangerous servers will be unavailable from around 9.30am BST until the new updates are live. We expect the downtime to last until around 6PM BST. In the meantime, we will have a livestream starting at 2PM BST, so join us there!

The beta servers will be available until at least when the main servers go live.

The Commanders includes these amazing new features:

  • Commander Creator: with the new in-game Holo-Me feature lets you create your own commander using a variety of customization options!
  • Multi-Crew has been added with three new roles: Gunner, Fighter, or Helm. Matchmaking has been added for different session types and there are also separate stats included.
  • Welcome the new passenger ship called the Dolphin.
  • With the all-new Camera Suite you can view your commander and ship from a variety of interior and exterior angles, using a range of new camera controls. Perfect for all the video makers out there… can’t wait to see what you make with the new tools!
  • Aside from bug and stability fixes, we’ve also added a host of new mysterious things, asteroid bases, 100 new tourist beacons, and more!

Interested? These are just a taste of the update notes - the full changelog can be seen here.

Looks interesting.

So, other folks can ride in your spacecraft while you fly at the helm?

New roles: Gunner and Fighter

That would be pretty cool to have multiple gunner stations on the same spacecraft.  Like on the Millennium Falcon on the gunner stations shooting down tie-fighters.

Is the above description of gunner correct?

Are the 'Fighters' infantry dismounts?

There is no infantry battles, just ship battles. They've just implemented the co-pilot/gunner now which was needed for a long time!
