According to a short and sweet post on the Elite: Dangerous site, the alpha test for the multiplayer component of the game has officially kicked off for early adopters. Players interested in joining in can still purchase access to the alpha.
Alpha Phase 2.0 - Multiplayer
Alpha 2.0 - Multiplayer is out now and provides backers the opportunity to play against each other in four distinct multiplayer scenarios:
- Free-for-all melee
- Pick your side in a two-team melee
- Co-operative defense of a crippled Federal battlecruiser
- A more sophisticated ‘Pirates and Bounty Hunters’ mode which hints at the fluid choices and roles players will experience on a much greater scale in the final game.
Credits can be earned in each scenario and used to purchase new ship loadouts.
