Elite Dangerous: Horizons goes free for all players today

Last month, Elite Dangerous developer Frontier Developments announced an incoming treat for the space game's fans - its existing Horizons content would become a free update in October. Well, that day is here - Horizons, which added a batch of new gameplay features and mechanics to Elite’s universe, is now available to all players for the low, low cost of not a thing. Elite Dangerous: Horizons, which launched around five years back, ushered in features such as planetary landings to the simulation game, allowing players to "travel seamlessly from space to any point on the surface of accurately simulated planets and moons throughout Elite Dangerous' full-scale Milky Way galaxy, and drive new SRV ground vehicles". Additionally, the season brought on board weapon crafting, ship-launched fighters, and multi-crew co-op, which lets players take on one of several roles to team up with other commanders and fly the same ship. Plus, looting and crafting updates in Horizons let players "smuggle materials to the outposts of the elusive Engineers and earn their respect to unlock powerful module upgrades".
