Space can be lonely, bring some friends. Elite: Dangerous just released a free update allowing groups of 4 players called wings to be formed.
The new update will allow for 4 player cooperative play. Do missions together, hunt bounties and do general space stuff with your friends. The cool thing you can do is that a group can set an auto-follow on a group leader and travel in formation together. It looks neat.
Elite: Dangerous out now on PC and was announced to come out on Xbox one and PS4 at some point.
