Why can’t we have the game now?!
The team behind the hugely ambitious and very interesting upcoming space sim, Elite Dangerous have announced their plans to introduce the new Elite Dangerous Mercenary Edition. So what does this mean?
Anyone that pre-orders the game from this point forwards, and anyone that has already pre-ordered the game will receive a £4.99 discount and a load of extra in game digital goodies at no extra cost. The Mercenary Edition is decked out with all the contents you need to expand your game just that little bit more, it includes:
1 additional ship, an eagle fighter specifically that will be docked in a secondary location in-game.
An exclusive pack of paint schemes for your ships that are only available with this exclusive offer.
A Day One decal for your ship.
A digital players guide book an a digital art book full of conceptual art.
This edition will also include any additional in-game benefits and digital goods that are to be announced in the next few weeks.
Frontier Developments proves to be one of the few developers that genuinely care about the consumer, their CEO, David Braben said “We are hugely appreciative of everyone who has demonstrated their support for the game by backing it through the early development phase or pre-ordering the game prior to release. Without those people, Elite: Dangerous would not be at the stage it is today. The Mercenary Pack is our way of rewarding them before we release the game.”
