Frontier has just announced Elite Dangerous’ next big update is launching on April 23rd. “As mentioned in the beginning of March, this year’s initial updates will focus on introducing quality of life improvements and improving the welcoming experience for beginners,” Frontier posted today. “This update brings with it two new modules to help get you out there, engaging in and exploring all that there is to discover – as well as ensure that you’re able to access in-game information and training from the seat of your cockpit!” Those modules would be the advanced docking computer and the supercruise assist. There’s also a new zone of planets for beginning players, extra module slots for all, navigation panel improvements, the Pilot’s Handbook, trading tweaks, and community events. The update should come as welcome news to the community; a month ago, the studio announced it’s working on what sounds like a massive 2020 expansion, with updates every three or four months in the meantime.
