Elite Dangerous: Horizons Patch



Greetings Commanders,

We will be taking the servers offline soon to apply update 2.0.03. The downtime for this update should take no more than 30 minutes. As always, we hope to come in under that time. The servers will go offline at 11AM UK, 6AM Eastern US time.

Sit back, relax, read the patch notes, and think about the socks.
