It’s taken a long time, but finally Elite: Dangerous players have discovered an alien race known as the Thargoids.
Thargoids have appeared in Elite games since the series began, but have remained hidden in Elite: Dangerous until now. Xbox user “DP Sayre” uploaded a video of his first encounter with a Thargoid ship yesterday and sent the community into meltdown. The encounter has since been confirmed as real by developer Frontier Developments on Twitter.
