The designers of Elite: Dangerous went to great lengths to ensure the game’s portrayal of space travel is as authentic as possible. That includes adding the location of where the Voyager 2 would be in the game’s timeline.
Elite: Dangerous’ latest patch notes contained a hidden “secret”. That secret was revealed today by Redditor Goldenvale.
The secret is the Voyager 2. Elite: Dangerous has a replica of the Milky Way, and the game itself takes place in 3300 AD. So one talented tehcnical artist on the team decided to add the Voyager 2 probe to the game. Not only that, but it’s located where it should be with respect to the game’s timeline. That’s 2.1 million seconds away from Sol.
Take a look.
The math used to predict its future location all checks out apparently, according to smart people on Reddit. The one in the game apparently plays the recording as well.
