Departure from Polo Harbour marks the end of Stage 1.
Stage 2: Building the Galactic Core Starport and discovering secrets at the heart of the galaxy. Stage 2 will offer new challenges as we begin to leave the last human outposts far behind, in addition some of the optional points of interest along the Stage 2 route may be in locations requiring large jump ranges, and/or the use of neutron boosts if you want to visit them!
The main goal of this stage though will be to complete the 2nd phase of the community goal at the very heart of the galaxy when we arrive at WP7 in a couple of weeks time. After which the fleet will continue to explore the core, and gradually make its way out toward the far side.
Fleet attrition will most likely begin to bite during this stage, as was the case with DW1, many commanders see Sagittarius A as an adequate goal in which to call it a day – and this is perfectly fine – DW2 will be no different!
Anti-Xeno Initiative – the thargoids have upped the stakes at the moment. We have 5 systems in Incursion and 5 systems with an infestations. Defenders are stretched to the limit, with the AXI only able to defend one system last week.

To take part all you need to do tell us your fondest memory about Frontier games, events or moments on any one of the below social media posts – or here on the forums. So, whether that’s a memory of docking for the first time in the very original Elite, releasing your first raptor in Jurassic World Evolution, or hearing Peter Sallis reprising his role in Wallace & Gromit in Project Zoo.
Frontier expects to report revenue of approximately £64 million for the period compared to £19 million recorded in the interim results last year.
Based on trading performance in the first six months of the financial year, combined with sales over the Christmas holiday period, the Board remain comfortable with the analyst revenue projections of £75 million to £88 million for FY19 (the year ending 31 May 2019) and anticipate that revenue should exceed the mid-point of this range.
Elite Dangerous has exceeded 3 million base game units. Previously the Company has reported “franchise units” for Elite Dangerous whereby the Elite Dangerous: Horizons expansion, sold at the same price as the base game, was also counted as one unit. The Company has now simplified unit reporting to state gross unit sales of the base game only. For comparative purposes cumulative franchise units for Elite Dangerous are now over 4.3 million.
The development of Frontier’s fourth game franchise is on track, with release targeted for FY20 (between 1 June 2019 and 31 May 2020).

Official policy from the DW2 organisers is that we do not endorse any form of PVP within the DW2 PGs, even for protection. Any combat within the DW2 PGs is strictly limited to PVE combat against NPCs. We cannot control anything that happens outside of the DW2 PGs, so we advise that you use the official PGs if you want to avoid PVP combat:
If attacked by a player, please contact a PG Admin privately and directly with any evidence like screenshots, videos, or player logs if on PC, etc. Please do not do this in public in any form.
In the event of destruction within one of the PGs, DO NOT click on rebuy. Instead, submit a support ticket with Frontier Support and state in your ticket that you are a DW2 participant and don’t want moving back to the bubble, and wait for a response. If you chose the rebuy option then FDev will be unable to move you back to where you died.
In your ticket also cite the information about Harassment Rules in Private Groups, as well as name the player(s) that attacked you.
Please do keep in mind that any support handled by FDev is done on a case by case basis at their discretion.
Fleet Defence Force and escorts against NPCs
Escorts will officially be handled by Iridum Wing on PC and Xbox, and a separate PS4 escort wing. These will be used for escorting truckers and during the mining CGs near civilised space.
The Fleet Defence Force is roleplayed with a story entwined in a mystical and interactive adventure that you can join as part of the Distant Worlds 2 expedition. Rumours are circulating of a bandit raider group spread across the route to Beagle Point. The Primary role of the FDF will be to scupper the plans of the bandits based on five interwoven scenarios as part of an EDRPG story arc.
The bandit scenarios will be the only sanctioned PvP events taking place within the expedition and will be carried out using SLF’s and SRV’s under strict guidelines in a controlled instance in a separate FDF PG.
You will require a ship capable of carrying an SLF.
The first Bandit vs FDF scenario will take place on Saturday 26th January 3305, location and times will follow within the FleetComm discord.
Fleet Mechanics in-game practice runs from the 8th-12th JAN on all platforms. For more info visit the Fleet Mechanics channel within the FleetComm discord.
Anti-Xeno Initiative – The Thargoids attacked Electra placing the system in the Inclusion State. Commanders managed to fend off the Thargoids within 4 days.
Operation IDA – They had a Holiday Charity Drive and managed to repair Asami Orbital, in addition to raising $1100+ for the Direct Aid Charity.
Zarek Null Ran the Live Player event of Operation TinMan :- This video presents the final outcome: https://youtu.be/_drbSmJTqe8 – Because Pilots Federation commanders failed to stop Operation:Tinman, there is now a sentient, artificially intelligent cosmic vampire named CMDR SAI-4 inhabiting open-mode. In order to survive, SAI-4 must continually feed on signals emanated from the exploding frameshift drives of Pilots Federation commanders. So if you see this Commander in Open – RUN!!! He/She/It will Attack!
