Elite: Dangerous Alpha Phase 2.0 Released


Hi everyone,

the latest phase in the Elite: Dangerous alpha process has been released, to accompany this we have posted a video with David and Michael going over some of the features for this new build:

The build itself contains the following key features:

  • 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. 

As with the previous phase your feedback is important to us, please make sure to report any issues through the link provided in the launcher and for more experiantial feedback please join in the discussion in the Alpha section of our forums:

As mentioned in the latest newsletter there will be two more phases after this one is finished before we move into the Premium Beta stage (this is the first beta phase in the Kickstarter rewards).

The Alpha program can be joined now via the Elite: Dangerous online store at

Until next time Commanders...

      Can we have an update on the new expected beta schedule. Originally private beta was estimated in January so we're somewhere around 4-6 weeks behind. That's fine, no issues with delay, but a new ETA would be appreciated. Thanks.

      It's Alpha, I understand that. When I CAN sneak on it's fantastic. A 1/10 hit rate though. Keep working at it, this is going to be one 'ell of a game when it works
