First Aliens Found (In Elite: Dangerous)
Elite: Dangerous is an enormous, galaxy-spanning space combat marvel, but players have always suspected that we are not alone. Now, thanks to Xbox player DP Sayre, we have proof.
Video proof of the extraterrestrial encounter has been uploaded to YouTube and can be seen below:
Developer Frontier Games have confirmed the validity of the encounter and subsequent video with a Tweet, sharing an image of the alien spaceship with the text: “A report just coming through that a CMDR has experienced something… strange.”

This is the first evidence that aliens (called Thargoids in Elite: Dangerous) exist. While this video evidence proves the theorists right, it also poses further questions. How many different species are there? Do they all want war? Can I get me a sweet alien spaceship?
Time will tell.
