Elite: Dangerous players discovered an alien life-form

Planets and space rocks are not the only thing Elite: Dangerous can offer.


Noise-emitting Space Barnacles have been discovered in Elite: Dangerous, after developer Frontier teased last year that Elite is hiding something no one has discovered yet. This week, Commander Octo discovered the alien life-form on Merope 5C.

The coordinates are exactly -026.3496°, -156.4044°. YouTube user Semtexzv uploaded a sound clip of the noise they make, with an image showing what they look.

Thanks, PCGamesN.
