– Multicrew, allowing teams of players to assume roles aboard the same ship.
– Commander Creation, giving a unique appearance to players’ in-game avatars.
– Ship-Launched Fighters, allowing larger spacecraft to carry their own short-range fighter ships for attack and defense.

The Beta for Elite Dangerous: Horizons hits PC today. Expect a full launch soon.
