A terrifyingly powerful race from the classic Elite games, the Thargoid were long thought to have disappeared from the galaxy in Elite Dangerous. That is until Frontier started teasing their ardent community and intrepid explorers found what seemed to be a dormant husk on the edges of known space at the beginning of 2017. It wasn’t that dormant, though.
Coming out on 26th September Elite Dangerous 2.4 The Return heralds, well, the return of the Thargoid and the start of new narrative threads in the game. Frontier are promoting the moment with the release of a cinematic video Commander Chronicles: Retaliation.
