'Elite: Dangerous' finally beams onto PS4 in Q2 2017

Space adventure Elite: Dangerous is coming to the Playstation 4 in the second quarter next year, completing its gaming platform sweep. The trading and combat sim will have all the latest Horizon expansions, letting you tear around the surface of planets at up to 100mph using a Surface Recon Vehicle. The game is available on VR for the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, but the Elite team unfortunately didn't mention Playstation VR support for the PS4 version -- at least, not yet.

The trading, combat and exploration sim offers multi- and single-player modes, and lets you explore the Milky Way galaxy at your own speed, either as a sandbox or part of a mission. The team has also accurately recreated our solar system and parts of the galaxy, letting you see "familiar constellations" and visit "white dwarfs, neutron stars and even black holes that exist in our real night sky."

The team did leave the door open a crack for Playstation VR support, saying "we're looking forward to telling you more about how we're supporting PS4 in the coming months." There's no specific date other than Q2 2017, or a price, but the Xbox One version starts at $29.99.
