I’ve not been keeping up with Elite Dangerous’ ongoing introduction of the Thargoids, but it seems like diplomacy is out of the window. A new trailer (below) suggests the war isn’t going all that well for humanity.
Thargoids, it seems, are now able to attack space ports. And they’re pretty good at it. The Oracle port is under heavy attack, and appealing to any and all available pilots to show up in defense.
This is all part of the ongoing Thargoid narrative in Elite Dangerous 2.4. Which is, in itself, part of the Season Two ‘Horizons’ expansion. Here’s the video. Do stop by the Oracle if you’re able to help, it really looks like they need a hand.
