      Apologies if this is not news to everyone, but it was to me.

      I was under the assumption that by the end of the Horizons “season” we would be able to touch down on Earth-Like planets to visit grandma. Well, apparently there will be no flying our Ships through the streets of New New York or touching down in an angry farmers paddock. That will be coming in a later season apparently.

      Never the less I’m still looking forward to boosting around icy glaciers and dusty ridges in my buggy as well as soaring through canyons in my Clipper trying not to break the damn wings off!

      I didn’t know officially but I suspected that would be the case. I think that ‘no atmo’ landings are a very good start. I also think that the development of games such as ‘No Man’s Sky’ and other advances in procedural generation (as well as Frontier’s own advancements) will make landing in New New York a reality in the not too distant future.

      Yeah I do recall they said atmospheric landings are still a way off.  Either way, that still leaves a lot of exploring to do 🙂

      I see this being amazing, planetary bases, land battles, discovering all kinds of different things.  I can’t wait.

      A galactic sandbox. This has the potential to be truly profound.

      Ohh.  Good idea DaMorgs.  Lets all have a race in our brand new SRVs once Horizons launches.  I would love to see the ensuing comedy.

      I’m thinking a canyon somewhere, start at one end, finish at the other, no rules, only alcoholic drinks allowed. 🙂
