Elite Dangerous

Elite: Dangerous is the upcoming space sim game from Frontier Games, and it has now entered the final phase of its development. The game’s final beta has accordingly gone live, and it costs a staggering £50 if you want in on that, available directly from Frontier’s website. The final release is slated to cost £35, and it will be available before the end of this year.

“Beta 1 is yet another significant milestone for the development of Elite: Dangerous,” the developer said said.

“It further builds out the core gameplay with the addition of many important features. Beta 1 marks the beginning of the final phase of development.

“We want to again thank all the Alpha and Premium Beta players who have contributed so much to date. We are delighted to welcome a large number of new people to the Elite: Dangerous multiplayer experience, and are looking forward to everyone’s reaction to the great new features and increased scale.”

Of course, if you think that £50 is a lot, consider this- the DLC won’t be included with this purchase. You’re gonna have to buy it separately. Seriously.

I mean, damn. The game looks great, but that’s some serious price gouging right there.

“It’s the way we’re doing it,” the developer admits. “We’ve planned it this way for sound reasons, and part of that is going towards backing the game. We don’t have a publisher here. That backing helps financially.”Okay, I guess.
