The moment a lot of players have been looking for, it seems that the alien species from ages old Elite titles, the Thargoids have returned.
Xbox user DP Sayre has recorded what seems to be the first contact with the species, and as yet nobody knows how either humans or Thargoids will react
It’s a good quality video, straight from Xbox DVR and the team from Frontier seem to be confirming on twitter that this is certainly first contact. After our very recent tweet on the subject, we’re excited to see what happens in the future

Thargoids were known in previous Elite titles for pulling players out of “witch space” for their own evil ends. It could be that a blossoming new relationship will form between the two, but for the moment at least, we’re in the dark
