Elite Dangerous gets PS4 release date

Frontier Development's popular space exploration simulator, Elite Dangerous, will launch on the PS4 on June 27th, the company announced on Tuesday. PC and Xbox One will also receive a retail version, which launches on the same day. 

Elite Dangerous launched all the way back in 2014 on PC (after it was successfully Kickstarted in 2012), before coming to the Xbox One Game Preview Program in 2015. Along the way, the game received a sizable expansion pack named Horizons, which added planetary landing, looting, crafting, passenger missions, and more.

The PS4 version of the game will include the Horizons expansion, as well as 1,000 Frontier Points. When the port was announced in December, the developer confirmed that the game would make use of the PS4 Pro's power, include motion-based head controls via the Dual Shock 4, and will feature the option to map four hot keys to the controller's Touch Pad.
