 As console transfers are on the horizon there will be those who are already on their Xbox/PS engineering path and want to progress on PC and those who may want a fresh start. Either way the East India Company (EIC) would like to be there for everyone by offering free commodities to unlock Horizons engineers in the Bubble and Colonia for one month following the official FDev transfer date for ALL CMDRs, whether they are transferring from consoles or not..

 All you need to do is mention Operation: Consolation when you place your order and there will be no charge for it.

 Any CMDR who wishes to help EIC from now until one month after the official FDev transfer date by carrying out trades, partaking in loading parties, or supplying any goods to EIC will receive the tag “Operation: Consolation”.

 The East India Company – *Despite our history, we’re actually quite nice now….*
