Elite: Dangerous Players Have Finally Found Aliens

By Luke Plunkett on at

After years of teases and winks and hints throughout the Elite: Dangerous universe, players are today reporting that they’ve finally made “first contact” with aliens in the game. And they are big.

DP Sayre, a player on Xbox One, made the discovery earlier today, when he was wrenched out of hyperspace then treated to a tense little cutscene before the UFO makes its first appearance.

Developers Frontier seemingly confirmed the event with this tweet:

That thing is huge.

He encountered it jumping to “ARIES DARK REGION XU-O B6-3" if you’re in the game and want to try it yourself.
