Frontier Developments has announced the Horizons update for Elite Dangerous will be folded into the base game.

The Horizons expansion will be added to Elite Dangerous on October 27 as a free update.

Players will receive the complete Horizons experience on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. If you previously purchased Horizons, you will receive an exclusive Azure paint job compatible with all 41 ships currently in the game.

The expansion will remain on sale on all platforms until October 26 to allow players a last chance to obtain owner rewards and access to the Azure paint jobs.

Horizons brings planetary landings to the Elite Dangerous galaxy, together with weapon crafting, ship-launched fighters, and multi-crew co-op. You can also explore land using the SRV Scarab ground vehicle, and have access to many surface starports and other locations.

The next large update to the game will be Odyssey, which will see players able to combine space flight with first-person on foot gameplay in early 2021.
