Discovery Scanner | Happy Holidays, 3308!

Greetings Commanders,

Wow, another year set to conclude in the Galaxy as we face 3309, fast on the approach, we'd like to take a moment now, ahead of the imminent Holidays, to reflect a little on the week just passed and wish you well into the weeks ahead until we meet again in the new year.

Game News

As mentioned last week, the teams have acknowledged a core selection of known issues present since the deployment of Update 14, with a view to tackle these in an interim update early next year.

For full information on the known issues list under internal investigation and more information on plans in general for the update, head to the official Forum post here.

To clarify, there is no set date for the interim update as yet but when we're back in the new year we'll have more information on the specifics and logistics then.


Corrs Toy Emporium Calls For Help

Despite the current status of urgency within the galaxy at present, with the Thargoid invasion efforts, Commanders are keeping the festive spirit alive for those who need it most (good for you!!) in our special seasonal in game event.

Rewards as part of completing efforts throughout this venture include a number of exclusive paint jobs and more!

Stellar Screenshots 3308

Each week of 3308 never failed to astound and astonish us with efforts from the Commander Community being top tier with entries into our weekly Stellar Screenshots competition.

As part of the Festive Livestream last week, we shortlisted 10 of the best (this was exceptionally difficult) screenshots from throughout the year and set it to the public vote as to which lucky entry would come out on top as the best of 3308.

Carrying the most votes, we were proud to announce Commander Tumama as the overall winner for the year with this beautiful submission below. A huge congratulations to them.


Featured Commander | The High Wake

We were absolutely overjoyed this morning to see that over the weekend, The High Wake released another fantastic animated short, titled 'When you have high access level'.

"Elite Dangerous: When you have a high access level: Living with a high access level has its benefits. Every door is open to you in your settlement. Every guard respects you. Every skimmer sentry squeaks a welcome when you appear. There is only one problem - saboteurs with a profile analyzer."

We love how this one features so many known Commanders from the community! Amazing work o7


'Krait on a Plate' Forum Fun

We've been gifting out our seasonal prize paint job bundle throughout the course of the month, as part of the Festive Livestream just passed and via little challenges across our official social channels.

Over in the Elite Dangerous Forum right now, there's a few days left to think up and submit your own Elite Dangerous version of 'Elf on a shelf'/'Krait on a plate' to win!


A selection of witty minded Commanders will be chosen to win the above paint job prize early this week - the 'Snowfall Icicle' pack.
