Multiplayer space epic Elite Dangerous is coming to PS4 and PS4 Pro in the 2nd quarter of 2017.

The space adventure, trading, and combat simulation from developer Frontier Developments will make full use of PS4 and PS4 Pro and will come with exclusive features tailored to the PS4 DualShock 4 controller.

The news was announced by Frontier Developments’ CEO, David Braben, on the official PlayStation blog yesterday.

“I’m thrilled to announce today that Elite Dangerous is coming to PlayStation 4”, Braben wrote. “In Elite Dangerous, every star in our night sky – the whole Milky Way – is there for you to explore how you choose. Fight, bounty-hunt, trade, assassinate, mine, explore your way across human space and out into the immense galaxy beyond, flying with your friends or travelling alone.”

Elite Dangerous has been a wonderful project to be involved with, made by a great team here at Frontier. Its roots go all the way back to my first commercial game, Elite, first released in 1984 with Ian Bell, while we were both at university. Two sequels followed. Over thirty years later, Elite Dangerous is a huge step forwards from those games, but the principles are the same – do what you like and live life in an immense galaxy – and today you can play with (or against!) friends and our amazing community as you travel the galaxy alone, together in a ‘wing’ or even fly aboard the same ship.

We’ve worked hard to make Elite Dangerous the richest space simulation ever. From our love of science and astronomy, the galaxy is as real as we can make it. You’ll look up at the night sky in our own Solar system and you’ll recognise familiar constellations, then see them change as you travel away from Earth. Visit real white dwarfs, neutron stars, even black holes that exist in our real night sky.

Elite Dangerous was originally released for PC back in 2014 and an Xbox One version was released earlier this year. As said, the PS4/Pro version will be released in the 2nd quarter of 2017.
