elite dangerous cobra

Even saving up for one of these is going to take a while.

Honestly, I look away for a moment and two Elite: Dangerous Gamma updates come out at once. 1.04 (released earlier today) isn’t massively extensive, but when combined with yesterday’s 1.03 release it adds up to quite a few changes.

As always, the Elite: Dangerous launcher will invite you to download these updates. You can see the changes for each version below. It’s good to see stuff like “Don’t include systems we are not permitted to enter in the route planning” on the list. Hopefully there’ll be something like “not quite so impossible to find ship upgrades for sale” in future logs.

Before we get to the change logs, here’s a new video put out by Frontier with some useful combat tips in it. In fact, it’s actually a lot more useful than the in-game tutorial.
