The second update for the Horizons season of Elite: Dangerous has now launched. Let the customizations begin.
The 2.1 update, called The Engineers, gives players a loot and crafting mechanic, while allowing them the opportunity to build modules for their ships, and add new experimental effects to weapons. If you have not joined in for the Horizons season, update 1.6 is also live, which brings a bunch of changes to the PC version of the game.
If you haven't gotten into the game at all, developer Frontier recently lowered the price of the game and the season pass. The season pass is now $29.99, and the Commander pack, which has the base game and the pass, is $59.99.
