Elite: Dangerous enters last Alpha phase, multiplayer Beta starts May 30
Hyperspace jumps and multiplayer come Elite: Dangerous.
Elite: Dangerous has launched its fourth and final Alpha phase and is preparing to enter Beta on May 30, developer Frontier Developments has announced.
Alpha 4 significantly expands the single player portion of the game. It’s set within a “200 cubic light-year volume” containing five star systems in contested space centred around “the Boötes constellation,” with “spectacular sights such as an unusual quaternary star system and ringed gas giants.”
Alpha 4 also allows you to choose between five ships, different weaponry, and introduces trading to the game for the first time.
