Elite: Dangerous Release Date Announced

VRFocus - Fans of Elite: Dangerous have been enjoying the title's extensive Beta testing period for the past few months now. The early version of the virtual reality (VR) compatible space simulation experience has been subject to constant updates from the team at Frontier Developments. But the time of patches and updates is soon to draw to a close as the developer has at last announced the launch date for the full version of Elite: Dangerous on PC where the title features full support for the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD).

The story is too old to be commented.

Gonna have to put some games on the back burner because the beta was great and I can only imagine just how great the full version will be.

Will take about a month off to let the full release get patched and let all the day one crap get ironed out as servers get flooded with gamers.

Elite Dangerous is the real deal and will such all your free time away.

Wow. Just WOW. This game with OC Rift will be freaking amazing. A game changer.

I have been playing since premium beta, and the game is getting better and better really fast! Recorded new stuff yesterday just to test YouTube's new 60 FPS feature, and I must say Elite: Dangerous finally looks nice in YouTube too. :)

Around the halfway in the video I hunt newbie A.I.'s.

Which specs has your machine to achieve 60 fps?

Petro1538d ago (Edited 1538d ago )

Processor: i7-3930K (overclocked)
GPU: GTX 780 Ti (overclocked)
RAM: 32GB 2400Mhz (10 GB as a RAM cache for SSD)

Also resolution is at 2560 x 1440, for some reason the uploaded video did not come out at that resolution in YouTube.

You have to admit, it's a great problem to have! :)

i really wanted to buy into the beta, and i still want to buy the mercenary package... but i just dont have the money for $50+ games anymore.

Petro1537d ago

It will get cheaper once it's released. :) I have given them all the support I simply can, bought premium beta myself, bought beta for a friend and bought some paint jobs for ships.
