Greetings Commanders.

Bringing you a Tuesday edition of Discovery Scanner this week due to the bank holiday here on this side of The Galaxy.

Game News.

Following your thoughts regarding Elite Dangerous '4.0' access on PC, we released our latest response FAQ which we hope will help add more clarity to key questions that arose from the initial announcement.  
You can find the official post here.
As always, thank you for your feedback and please ask any further questions you may have over in the official Elite Dangerous forums.

Communications Pending...

In light of our expansion on further details regarding access to 4.0, we're happy to confirm that we aim execute the plan to roll this out to all Commanders next month, September 2022.

Our plan also remains in place for the Console migration to PC strategy, to also take place this coming September.

A busy month ahead, for sure.

We will of course issue specific information for both events ahead of their roll out, which naturally include specifics on the dates and what to expect of both release schedules and how they affect your day, so do watch out for that as we communicate out across the site, Forum, and official social channels.
