Phase one of the Elite: Dangerous alpha is now live! Alpha backers can now download and play Phase One – Single Player Combat.
Once installed you will be able to take to the cockpit of your Sidewinder , with varying weapon loadouts and progress through 8 single player scenarios – initially designed to familiarize players with the controls, gradually increasing in difficulty and complexity.
In your first taster of Elite: Dangerous you will be testing aspects of ship control and combat.
If you are an existing backer then you will have been sent details explaining how you can access and download this first phase of the Alpha process using your previous login details from the Backer’s Web App- if you are a gift recipient then using the ‘forgotten password’ option will send you instructions to get access to your new account.
Thank you again to everyone who has supported us to this point. We hope all of you involved with the alpha stage onwards enjoy the ride, and that together we can make Elite Dangerous the game we have all been waiting for!
Carry on Commanders!
