Frontier Developments has launched phase one of the Elite Dangerous beta.
The Elite Dangerous premium beta is priced at £100. An early access single player combat build is available now, ahead of a full release on May 30.
Premium beta customers get:
- Immediate access to download a Single Player Combat build to develop your Sidewinder skills before the first Premium Beta build is released
- Automatic access all the Beta development stages
- Automatic access to all major downloadable expansion packs as they are released
- A download copy of the released game
Frontier raised more than £1.5 million on Kickstarter to fund development of Elite Dangerous.
In December 2013, the studio launched phase one of the Elite Dangerous alpha, offering consumers the first public hands-on access to the game for an upfront payment of £200. The alpha is only available on PC and runs until April 25.
Access to the Elite Dangerous standard beta costs £50, while the final game is priced at £35 ahead of its release later this year. The title will be available on PC first and Mac three months later.
