Elite: Dangerous Pegged For December 16 Launch

By   /   Nov 7, 2014

Elite: Dangerous will officially launch on PC on December 16 this year, Frontier Developments has announced.

Following in their waves of alpha and beta event, the game is finally ready to be deployed to the masses and will be available digitally from EliteDangerous.com for £35. The game will however be free for those who pledged £20 or more to the game’s Kickstarter campaign.

In a statement, studio boss David Braben said that the release of the game does not mean the development has ended. There are still many more features to be added and a new video pushed out today teases some of them.

Titled “The Future of Elite: Dangerous,” the video indicates that Frontier is looking to include the ability to land on and explore planets, walk around your ship in first-person mode and more.

Elite: Dangerous was successfully crowdfunded on Kickstarter in January 2013. It managed to raise £1.5 million from a total of 25,000 backers. Frontier originally had chalked out an £8 million figure for their game but had to do without it in the end.

According to Braben, the studio had to also involve much of its own money into development and with time the budget has grown. The release of the game later this year will hopefully help them in the financial sector.
