Terry Pratchett tribute added to Elite: Dangerous

Elite: Dangerous now contains a little nod to the late, great Terry Pratchett.


Elite developer Frontier Developments has added a starport called Pratchett’s Disc to the space sim.

This is, of course, a tribute to the late author, whose Discworld books are beloved by millions.

“At Frontier we have a great many Pratchett fans on staff and we were all saddened to learn of his passing,” executive producer Michael Brookes told Eurogamer.

“The sentiment was reflected by our community so we felt it would be right to remember him in Elite: Dangerous.”

Pratchett passed away last week at the age of 66, to the great sadness of fans. Our thoughts are with his friends and family, including daughter Rhianna Pratchett, a well-known games writer responsible for the new Tomb Raider games.

Elite: Dangerous is currently available on PC and coming to PS4 and Xbox One.
