Elite Dangerous: Horizons, Frontier's next set of expansions for its deep space pilot sim, will roll out today from 6pm UK time.

Chief among the additions is the ability to explore planetary surfaces in vehicles. A raft of other changes are also on the way, with more details and support to follow through 2016.

Existing players can make the jump to Horizons with a 10 discount.

Horizons has been available in beta for a while - Johnny posted his somewhat disastrous first steps exploring just recently.
