Frontier Developments today announces that after two beta phases, the free update Fleet Carriers from Elite Dangerous is now available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
The Fleet Carriers have arrived, and with them opens a wide range of possibilities for all Elite Dangerous commanders. With a jump range of 500 light-years, the Fleet Carriers provide players with a new way to explore deep space and take trips to more distant destinations. The Fleet Carriers are equipped with everything that players might need on their long journeys. No matter where in the space you are, in a Fleet Carrier you will feel at home.
Fleet Carriers offer a wide range of services and customization options. These ships have been created to fit all play styles. They will offer you the option to rearm, refuel, and repair your ship wherever you are. You can improve your mega-ship by adding a lot of services such as Universal Cartography and various Equipment. These extra services will make Fleet Carrier owners generate more income when visited by other commanders, who will be able to buy and sell modules, goods, and much more.
Thanks to the 16 hangars of these mega-ships, it has never been easier to explore the depths of space in squadrons. Fleet Carrier owners will have the last word on who can land and who can’t. They will be the ones who grant permission to the rest of the commanders to get on board. It is also up to you to decide whether you want to shelter criminals or protect your good reputation.
