Elite Dangerous Improves the Starter Experience with Exciting September Update

If you've always found that Elite Dangerous is a bit difficult to get into, well, this update is basically designed for you!

In addition, the September update will also include a reworking and rebranding of Frontier Points, introducing them as Arx. These Arx will be purchasable and used to buy Game Extras such as Paint Jobs, Ship Kits, Bobbleheads and more. As announced earlier this year, Arx will also be earnable via in-game activities.
