Elite Dangerous’ long-delayed Fleet Carriers finally due in June, PC beta starts next month

Elite Dangerous’ long-awaited 16-person Fleet Carriers, which have seen plentiful delays since their unveiling back in 2017, are finally almost ready to launch and will be entering a period of beta testing for PC players later this month.

Fleet Carriers – which were initially set to arrive as part of 2018’s Beyond update before they were “reprioritised” by developer Frontier – are capital ships designed to act as a base of operations for large, organised Squadrons
