Elite: Dangerous Alpha 3.0 Released

Frontier Developments has released the Elite: Dangerous Alpha 3.0 for all backers and purchasers of Elite: Dangerous, the latest prerelease installment in the upcoming space combat remake. As demonstrated in a new tutorial video, this adds docking to the game. Here's word: "After successfully proving out the moment to moment combat gameplay, and multiplayer technology in Alpha phases one and two respectively, phase three starts to move towards building out the game by adding docking, an early version of hyperspace jumps between multiple locations and ship outfitting within an iconic Coriolis space station. Once successfully docked in the station a notoriously difficult skill to master in the original Elite Elite: Dangerous Alpha phase three offers progression where players can use their honest profit or ill-gotten gains from their in-game actions to improve their ship."

Yeah, Star Citizen can suck it for now - all the real actual gameplay ED keeps showing looks great.

Not sure it's an either/or proposition. Both look great, and I'm sure both teams are looking at each other's stuff and inspiring each other with design and competitive spirit.

I can't argue with that reasonable stance; I guess I didn't feel much like reason tonight :). I'm a backer of both, but currently somewhat oversatiated on Star Citizen and was basically armchair ranting.

Yeah, I hear that. We get 10x the amount of SC news, pretty easy to get sick of it. The games are largely equivalent, so it's kind of annoying we don't hear about Elite more often. I guess C. Roberts just likes to toot his own horn a lot. I'm definitely looking forward to both games though.
