The popular space adventure has been available on other platforms since as far back as 2014 and has been a slowly developing project.
Frontier have been slowly building to a major update for the game, with the first alien species being released as part of the 2.4 patch.
It will safely fall in with the Elite Dangerous PS4 release date, which has been confirmed for June 27.
The new update won’t arrive until at least July and could take until September to actually deploy.
Until then, Frontier have provided a long list of the most important details you should know before Elite Dangerous goes live on PS4.
First of all, Elite Dangerous will be available as both a digital and physical release.
Digital pre-orders of Elite Dangerous or the Elite Dangerous: Commander Deluxe edition on PS4 come with a pre-order incentive: a Gold Sidewinder bonus paint job.
The physical version will be known as the Elite Dangerous: Legendary Edition and will be the complete Elite Dangerous experience available as an alternative to the digital-only version on the PS4.
This will be available from the 27th of June as well and includes Elite Dangerous, the Elite Dangerous: Horizons Season Pass and 1,000 Frontier Points for use for purchasing game extras via the online store.
For digital pre-order, Elite Dangerous will start at [£19.99/€24.99/$29.99] and the Elite Dangerous: Commander Deluxe Edition will be [£39.99/€49.99/$59.99]. Further pricing will be available closer to launch.
Frontier have also confirmed that Elite Dangerous will be supported on the PS4 Pro and may also be made available as PlayStation VR title.
However, the development team have cautioned that they have nothing to announce at this time on the subject of PS VR.
Solo Play will not require PlayStation Plus, however, anything that requires direct multi-player interaction, such as Open Play, CQC, Private Groups will require a subscription, while Frontier have also confirmed Remote Play Compatibility.
