Frontier just dropped a short teaser announcement for the upcoming chapter of the Beyond series. The next chapter patch will be available on 28th of June!

In this new update, we’ll be able to get your hands on the Alliance’s newest Chieftain variant: the Alliance Challenger. Plus, we’ll get a selection of wing missions, installation interactions, new settlements to explore and a collection of new Guardian weapons and technology from the Tech Brokers to combat the growing Thargoid threat, who will be introducing new Scouts that will buff other Scouts and increase their combat efficiency.

This is the first of the two smaller instalments coming as part of the Elite Dangerous Beyond series of updates, with a larger coming in Q4 of this year, bringing Squadrons and improvements to Mining and Exploration, and much more!

The short teaser itself doesn't show much – a new type of weapon, a few Thargoid scouts in an orbit of, what it appears like, Earth – or at least an Earth-like planet.

Wherever they are – combat oriented pilots will certainly have more reasons to brush up on their piloting skills.
