Elite Dangerous picks back up this year with a third season, Beyond, and PC/Mac players will soon be able to test out its first chunk of content. Frontier Developments is holding an open beta on January 25 for Beyond - Chapter One before its full launch on PC, PS4, and Xbox One in Q1 2018. These quests bring challenging team-based objectives for players to complete with friends and community members around the world. Commanders will share their adventures - and rewards - with allies while working together to overcome unsafe obstacles.

Whereas "Horizons" focused on paid downloadable content (DLC) that added some new features to "Elite Dangerous", "Beyond" will be a series of free updates that aim to improve overall gameplay aspects of the open-universe game.

We're also promised a smoother trading experience for gamers, with Frontier stating that info on the 'galactic economy is now more freely available, allowing every commander to become a master merchant as they journey among the stars'.

Chapter One also features a number of improvements: gameplay mechanics, the crime and punishment system, enhanced planet rendering, an overhaul to mission rewards and tweaks to engineering. That said, some of the upcoming improvements are only accessible to Elite Dangerous: Horizons owners. It's the first of these, known simply as Chapter One, that will enter open beta on Thursday, January 25th.

With the introduction of GalNet Audio, you will be able to catch up on the latest news from across the galaxy without ever leaving the action.

Elite Dangerous is now available on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Some may know you as an ally; others will call you a pirate, a bounty hunter, a smuggler, an explorer, an assassin, a hero...

Start with a small starship and a handful of credits, and do whatever it takes to earn the skill, knowledge, wealth and power to stand among the ranks of the Elite.

"Elite Dangerous" is the highly-lauded modern version of the classic spacefaring game. The seasons coincide with the development of the game, where Frontier Developments builds large sections of the game in pieces and releases them with bigger grandeur than just an update.

Elite: Dangerous is a surprisingly popular space simulator given its complexity and learning curve.
