Following its launch on PC and Xbox One, space game Elite: Dangerous is headed to PlayStation 4 and it will have PS4 Pro support.

Frontier Developments said today that the game will launch sometime between April and June in 2017. A new trailer has also been released:

PS4-specific features include touchpad functionality and optional, motion-based "headlook" controls via the DualShock 4 controller. Additionally, the PS4 version of Elite: Dangerous lets you designate four points on the touchpad as hotkeys, Frontier said in its announcement.

As for the PS4 Pro improvements, Frontier said only that people on that system will "further benefit from enhanced performance throughout" the game.

"We're thrilled to bring Elite: Dangerous to PlayStation 4," Frontier CEO and Elite co-creator David Braben said in a statement. "Elite Dangerous is unlike any other space game, with a rich multiplayer or single-player space, a true-to-life galaxy including our own entire night sky, real physics, unique ship handling characteristics, and a player-driven narrative that's really heating up. The galaxy has been stable for centuries, but all that is about to change. PlayStation 4 players will be joining our galaxy at a very exciting time."

Elite: Dangerous launched for PC in 2014 and came to Xbox One in 2015. For more, check out GameSpot's Elite: Dangerous review.
