A lot of people are eagerly awaiting the release of Elite Dangerous' upcoming Horizon's expansion, adding planetary explorations among many other things.

Below is a video showcasing just a little of what  we can expect to find when we explore planets with our surface recon vehicle the Scarab. Remember that this footage is some very early footage, so expect things to improve before release. 

 

 This is a quick-and-dirty un-edited capture from Horizons from a debug build on one of our dev machines, using the debug camera on an SRV and just zooming out ever faster from a crash site on the surface of a rocky potato-shaped planetoid, not unlike Vesta in our solar system. There are tons of little details we plan to tweak or fix, but I thought it would be great for you guys to see where we’re up to with this.

 

 

When you go planetside you will be able to find crashed ships, mineral deposits, and even hostile outposts and fortresses. 

If you need to catch up on what exactly Elite's Horizon's expansion is please read the quote below for the game's official website

  

Elite Dangerous: Horizons launches this Holiday. The first expansion, Planetary Landings introduces players to planet surfaces and the first all-new Surface Recon Vehicle (SRV) the ‘Scarab’. Scanning airless planets and moons brings new gameplay as players detect signals, crashed ships, mineral deposits, outposts and fortresses. Alone or with friends players will explore, mine and engage hostile forces as they attempt to infiltrate strongholds guarding valuable rewards. Players will explore new worlds, coasting over mountaintops, diving into canyons, landing on the surface and rolling out onto the surface in your SRV, all without loading times or breaks in gameplay.

Elite Dangerous: Horizons will continue to introduce new features and gameplay as the season continues into 2016, enriching the Elite Dangerous experience with new activities and new ways to play.

Elite Dangerous: Horizons includes all Elite Dangerous content to date, and all players will continue to fly together in the same galaxy. Existing Elite Dangerous players receive a £10 loyalty discount off the price of Elite Dangerous: Horizons, retaining their progress and unlocking the exclusive ‘Cobra Mk IV’ in-game spacecraft.

Order now and be among the first to land, Holiday 2015.

If I like the game enough after playing it for a while I might make that kind of investment but I'll need to wait until I have funds spare to even try the game first Quote
