Elite Dangerous Beta Now Cheaper
Filed under: ELITE DANGEROUS

To all you space exploration and space shooter fans, the upcoming title Elite: Dangerous has been in Premium Beta for some time, allowing players to try out the game for considerably high price. However, as of July 29, participation in the beta costs $75 - as opposed to the $150 you had to pay for before that. Who would pay 150... never mind. Forget I asked. 

The developers have released some screenshots, fresh from the beta:

Here are the changes that were made since Premium Beta:

  • 55 star systems covering 38,000 cubic light-years
  • Initial online mission system functionality (to be further developed through Beta)
  • Player-to-player communication by text and voice Friends management and matchmaking
  • Private Group play option
  • On-line single player option
  • Overview trade route mapping
  • The concept of fuel consumption
  • Docking computers to automate safe star port landings
  • Additional Viper heavy fighter and Lakon Type 6 medium trader ships

I loved Elite back in the day, but $75 is Way Too Much for a remake. I can only laugh about $150 and wonder if those people that shelled out for that also buy $20 microwave burritos for lunch.
