Elite: Dangerous: Wings content update goes live
The Elite: Dangerous forum has been updated with the patch note for the Wings content expansion.
Wings brings some very nice multiplayer features on board with the Wings Beacon System that allows players to send signals to super cruiser environments. Beacon functionality allows other players and NPC ships accessing the signal to drop into the same location and is considered an enhancement for cooperative adventuring.
The new wings system also brings area-wide text communications broadcast to all nearby ships. Captains will be able to toggle whether or not to receive such communication.
Also of interest, the update features a debug camera that will allow players to take epic screenshots of their ships from the outside, though the caveat is mentioned that it is not a game play camera.
