Frontier Developments has announced that the Elite: Dangerous Alpha 4 has kicked off and gives players a much-expanded game to explore with more scale, scope and depth. Also included are new ships, trading and much more. Lastly, for those who are premium members, the beta will be available beginning May 30th.
Two additional methods of travel make their full debut in Alpha 4; super-cruise for accelerated within-system travel and hyperspace jumps for travel between systems. There are also new ships available to pilots, including the Anaconda.
The five Alpha 4 star systems are themselves set within 400,000,000 star systems of the Milky Way galaxy, all of which are moving correctly; spinning and orbiting in an incredible ballet. Whilst exploration is currently limited to the five Alpha 4 systems, the ‘night sky’ is accurate wherever you travel.
