You'll also be able to hop into the new Chieftain, an Alliance warship that packs a meaty punch, while the GalNet Audio feature allows you to keep up to date with all the latest goings on in the game without having to leave the action, 'bringing the ongoing narrative to the foreground at a unsafe moment for humanity's pilots'. Manufactured by Lakon Spaceways, the Chieftain is more maneuverable than ships of similar size and weight, and its combat profile means it can more than hold its own in a fight. This may prove more significant than it sounds, and could potentially help draw more focus to Elite's ongoing narrative elements and events, given that Galnet will no longer remain exclusively in the domain of those willing to park up and wade through pages of text, rather than playing the actual game.
Chapter One features a host of improvements across multiple gameplay mechanics, including a rejigged crime and punishment system, enhanced planet rendering technology, an overhaul of mission rewards, and tweaks to the engineering mechanics.
Advanced in-game Trading Data will empower traders to make better deals and smoother transactions.

In the meantime, you can get more information in some upcoming livestreams on Tuesday, January 16th at 7PM GMT, and Thursday, January 18th at 7PM GMT.
