Discovery Scanner - 20/09/2022

Greetings Commanders.

Thank you for joining us for a Tuesday edition of Discovery Scanner, following a public Bank Holiday yesterday. Here’s hoping your week has started as well as possible so far.

Game News


It was an exceptionally busy week in the Galaxy last week, with events such as:

  • The Console Copy Portal opened up for Console Commanders to at last join their PC Comrades within the Galaxy.

We’ve seen such an incredible response since the portal opened, as Commanders continue to fly on through and join us on their new platform.

Thank you all so much for stepping across. We’re so very happy to have you.

As a reminder, there is currently no fixed date set for the closure of the Console Copy Portal.

Please don’t worry, we won’t be closing the door without lengthy, prior warning. It’s still very early days with the launch of this process and we would like to give enough time as possible to allow our Console Commanders to travel across.

  • 4.0 Is Now Live.

In line with the launch of the Console Copy Process, the 4.0 update for Horizons released swiftly after.

Again, we thank all Commanders for their patience on the day with the extended downtime as this deployment took place and some stability issues were addressed.

It has been noticed that some issues may be being experienced with Commanders attempting to launch Horizons 4.0 via the Epic Store. We’re looking into this on development side but if any of you are continuing to face this problem, or it persists in line with Odyssey as oppose to singularly Horizons 4.0, then please do raise a direct Customer Service ticket here.

For the release thread and discussion, head over to the official Forum launch post here.


Last week launched our first Galnet News Roundup over in the Official Elite Dangerous Forum.

If a quick summary of the current state of the Galaxy, from the political whispers to ‘Bug Hunt Mayhem’ sounds like your kind of morning, afternoon or evening read then we’ve now got you covered.

Head on over to the official post here, to catch up.
