Elite: Dangerous is here! Well, nearly. At the time of writing you can “pre-order” (or as a cynic may say you can buy your way into the beta) to have a bit of a play with things to see how the game is shaping up. When I first heard that David Braben was launching a Kickstarter to bring us a new version of Elite I was both excited and nervous. Hope for the best, prepare for the worst. The premise was simple; to do exactly what Elite has always done but with modern hardware. No flashy bells and whistles that we really don’t need, just the same breathtaking core gameplay brought kicking and screaming into the 21st century. So, how is it shaping up so far?
