Hi guys,

We’ve got a sleek new ship coming to Beyond – Chapter Four in the form of the high-end Mamba ship. Today we’re premiering the Mamba Reveal Trailer, it’s suitably sleek to perfectly capture the luxurious racecar feel of this ship.  

Full details and assets for the Mamba, as well as our second new ship the Krait Phantom, are below. Both ships will come to Elite Dangerous players as part of the Beyond – Chapter Four update, currently in open beta on PC.

Based on an unreleased racing prototype, the Mamba brings blistering speed combined with huge firepower to Elite Dangerous as part of the Beyond – Chapter Four update. Sporting one huge and two large hardpoints, the Mamba’s emphasis on power speed allows players to hit hard and vanish before a target has had time to react. Though comparable to fellow

Joining the Mamba in Beyond – Chapter Four is the Krait Phantom. Following on from its sister ship the Krait Mk II, the Phantom is a lighter, faster ship that features a spacious cargo hold and relatively generous quantity of hardpoints. Though it may not boast the same firepower as the Mk II, the Phantom can still hold its own against larger targets and has enough straight-line speed to outpace smaller ships.
