Elite: Dangerous release date announced

Elite Dangerous - 28

As promised, Frontier Developments have revealed the release date for Elite: Dangerous.

If you want to pilot a spaceship around a big open sandbox-y universe, then 16 December is the day you want to mark on your calendar, because that’s when Elite: Dangerous will be hitting digital store shelves.

This also means that you don’t have too much longer either to pre-order the game for bonus content and a discount, and even less time to become a beta backer. You’ve got 15 days left to back the game if you want to do that, or 39 days to pre-order the game for the Mercenary Edition content and a £4.99 discount.

If I’m understanding correctly, the Mercenary Edition is basically the pre-order edition. It offers the game, an Eagle fighter docked somewhere in the game, an exclusive set of ship paint jobs, a ship decal, a digital players guide, a digital concept art book, and “loads of other goodies.”

Anyway. Elite: Dangerous. 16 December. Not very long.

      I need a good space game to play and Elite Dangerous looks good :D. So I’ll most likely pick this up next month.
