Lunchtime I was doodling - I've always loved mashups, so I drew a mashup of Elite and the NASA logo (referred to as the meatball) to create an Elite Dangerous meatball; EliteBall? Anyway this might make an amusing patch for the next LaveCon.
From 27 October Elite Dangerous: Horizons will be available for all Elite Dangerous owners as part of the base game.
Everyone who purchased Horizons prior to 27 October will be receiving an exclusive Azure ship paint job compatible with ALL ships currently in the game as a thank you.
Frontier have posted on the forums (here) the following announcement:
We are happy to announce that Elite Dangerous: Horizons will become a free update for the base game on the 27 October 2020 for PC, PlayStation, and Xbox users.
After the fold down, anyone who owns Elite Dangerous will get access to Horizons content and features free of charge, and all future purchases of Elite Dangerous will include this content.

Elite Dangerous: Horizons brings planetary landings to the Elite Dangerous galaxy, together with weapon crafting, ship-launched fighters and exhilarating multicrew co-op action.
