Elite Dangerous Update - Wings

Frontier Developments launched the second major update for Elite: Dangerous, free to all players.

Wings allows players to form a 4 person group using the Comms panel on their in-cockpit user interface. Players flying with wingmen share ship data with the wing. All wingmen that participate in a successful attack on a Wanted Player or NPC will share the bounty.

Two new playable ships (The Zorgon Peterson Fer De Lance and the Core Dynamics’ Vulture) have also been added.

The content update also included a new 3rd person camera option that allows players to view their spacecraft from any angle and take screenshots at up to 16K resolution. The third major update (PowerPlay) is anticipated to launch in the spring.
