After the discovery of alien artifacts in Elite: Dangerous back in May 2015, many players thought that the aggressive alien race Thargoid would be added to the game soon. However, this never happened and the mystery behind this went on increasing with EMP-discharging probes being found hiding in a map-like thing with some strange alien voices.
Now, there are reports that a discovery even bigger than the previous ones in the game has been made and it is an alien space ship.
According to a Reddit post by Cmdr Noctrach, players went to a moon in the Pleiades Sector after clues from Gamescom. They then administered the moon in search of the ship and finally succeeded in finding it. Since then, several other pilots are now visiting the location and coming up with more theories on it.
The ship is speculated to be a Thargoid ship. Thargoids are the hostile aliens who were a part of the previous game of the series. According to one pilot, the barnacles that were discovered previously were also actually alien ships because they resemble the build of the latest crashed ship.
The players are now confused about whether the discovery of the crashed alien ship could mean the end of this particular storyline, or this could be a sign to bring back the Thargoids once again. Most of the pilots are actually excited with this find and they are now waiting for the next big expansion pack to release.
Here’s a video showing the speculated crash site. Thanks Riva Rivelus.
