Earlier in the week Commanders discovered a missing mega ship that forms part of the Formadine Rift mystery. Scanning the ship reveals some data logs, which as a welcome change have been very nicely voice-acted. These clips have been beautifully put together in the below video. Today Obsidian Ant will be running a Q&A with Drew Wager regarding the upcoming Premonition in-game event. The recording of it will be released at some point today. You can find out more about that, here.
The 1.9 & 2.4 update will be the final release in the Horizons season. Details are still a little sketchy on the content although from details announced by Frontier on the 24th May 2017 it would appear that certain outstanding story-lines are due to be tied up and revealed throughout the course of the release.
“Back at EGX in 2015 we showcased the headline features that would be coming to Horizons. However, there’s always been an extra little update, a mystery if you will, that has yet to be revealed.
“We’ll be providing a little more information about the update to the community and the press during E3 on June 13th and 14th. We’ll be hosting special community live streams and activity so stay tuned for more news and updates as we get closer to the date.
“I can, however, tell you that this update will be slightly different to previous ones – content will be revealed over time rather than all being available on day one. Additional pieces of exciting content will surface over the coming months as the narrative progresses. “
This page will be updated when further information is known.
