Elite Dangerous to Add a Carrie Fisher Memorial in Next Update

on December 29, 2016 5:23 PM

Players and developers alike are mourning the death of actress, writer, and activist Carrie Fisher, known best for her work on the Star Wars series.

After being devastated by Fisher’s death earlier this week, players of FPS Elite Dangerous took to the game’s forums to request some sort of tribute or memorial to the actress be added to the game. The request was heard, as Executive Producer Michael Brookes quickly confirmed the addition on the forums:

Sad news indeed – a ‘Fisher’s Rest’ outpost will be added to the game in the 2.3 release.

The 2.3 update to Elite Dangerous is due out sometime next year.

Elite Dangerous isn’t the only game to which fans have requested some sort of memorial for Fisher be added; many are asking on the forums for Star Wars: The Old Republic.
