Today's the day many of you have been waiting for. We're going to be updating Elite Dangerous with The Engineers (2.1) and 1.6. However, to do so we will need to bring the servers down for a long period of time while we apply the updates.
The servers will be down for potentially 10+ hours. It could be significantly shorter or longer and we wont be able to give a firm timeframe but we'll keep you informed on this thread as we get more information.
While you're waiting for the servers we have a few things going on to keep you entertained.
- We have a 1 hour AMA with David Braben on the Elite Dangerous subreddit at 11am. The thread will be going live on the subreddit closer to the time.
- We have the launch livestream from 1pm where Ed Lewis will be joined by David Braben, Mike Brookes, Sandro Sammarco and many more developers for some Q&As and giveaways. You'll find that on our official YouTube channel.
- We will be attempting to keep the beta servers online to allow players to continue playing.
We will update the thread with the full patch notes once we have them.
Thank you for your patience.
