From the latest newsletter on Elite Dangerous development news, some words from David Braben.

But what really captured my imagination was these:

These are in game screen-shots from the cockpit of Lakon Type 9, a bulky freighter class ship. The developers aim to make the player able to walk around both ships and docking stations, but for now, those screen alone make me wish I had a Oculus Rift unit to play this thing.

In other news, a familiar hull design also showed up:

I would recognise an Eagle anywhere. I spend many hours and many adventures on a heavily customized one during my days as a pirate assassin mercenarie freelancer back in Frontier.

That's all for now, but do say hello to my new wallpaper.

They should just go ahead and rename the game to "Elite Gorgeous".
