What Is Powerplay?

Powerplay is a new way to play Elite: Dangerous.

In Powerplay, you can participate in an ongoing battle for interstellar conquest and control that enhances every aspect of the Elite: Dangerous experience.

When Powerplay launches, you'll be able to ally yourself with any one of a number of galactic Powers, earning valuable perks, reputation bonuses and credits for your allegiance.

As a trusted ally of your chosen Power, you will be able to guide their strategy, take on special objectives to advance your shared cause, and dominate human space. Your choices and actions will have a direct and visible impact on the balance of galactic power.

And of course, Powerplay is a FREE content update for all Elite: Dangerous players and will be part of Elite: Dangerous for Mac and Xbox One at launch.


Image

"If you choose to participate in Powerplay, it will add a whole new dimension to Elite: Dangerous," Lead Designer Sandro Sammarco says. "These powers have their own ethos and methods. How they take control of systems varies depending on whether they favour warlike or more pacifist methods. Some will conquer systems with economics, others by just sending in the troops. Either way, you can be part of that."

Combat-focused players may choose to side with warlike Powers for combat missions and perks, while trade-focused players may prefer to side with a Power looking to expand their trade monopoly.

"You could choose a Power for any number of reasons," Sammarco continues. "Maybe you'll pick one who dominates a regular trade route you like or one that offers the kinds of missions you like to fly. Maybe you'll pick one whose politics you favour or maybe you'll just side with one who's about to go to war with your best friend's faction!"

"These characters offer us a chance to get deeper into the fabric of the Elite: Dangerous galaxy," Art Director Chris Gregory says. "Some of these Powers are new, and some will be familiar. You'll see fresh faces alongside names like Aisling Duval, Torval and Denton Patreus. Fans may already have a picture in their heads of what these people look like, but in some cases I think they'll be intrigued when they see those faces for the first time."

"We want players to love or hate these Powers," Gregory continues. "Because it's the players who will choose their actions on the galaxy map each week."


Image

We're rebalancing roles, opening new opportunities and making the Elite: Dangerous galaxy more surprising than ever before. Here's a quick overview of some of the features and upgrades you'll find as part of Powerplay:
A new GalNet feed accessible directly from the ship User Interface, and a better player inbox to track options in branching missions.
An overhauled mission system to support Powerplay's new objectives and to give players dedicated missions based on rank and status.
New drones for collecting cargo, prospecting, mining and transferring fuel to empower you whether you favour trading, combat or exploration, whether you prefer to fly with friends or alone.
Two new player-piloted ships: the Lakon Diamondback and the Imperial Courier.


Image

Higher-yield mining spots and high and low intensity extraction sites, adding risk to mining and dramatically increasing the potential rewards.
A bigger cash insurance safety net from the Pilots Federation for higher-ranked pilots so you can fly more expensive ships with reduced risk. We want pilots to be daring.
A number of improvements to the background simulation. You might not notice them, but they're all making the galaxy more credible and richer in every way.
A number of under-the-hood tweaks to balance the different ways players choose to play.
And finally, a gold Founder's ship decal for Kickstarter backers who backed Elite: Dangerous at £150 or more.
