The official trailer from Frontier Developments. Elite Dangerous is soon to be released on the Mac and will also be available on the Xbox one at a later date.
With Elite Dangerous reaching its release date, FD (frontier Developments) have released the launch trailer below. This has caused quite a reaction from backers of the game as it is not actual in-game footage. FD did state at the start of the Kickstarter project that some features like “walking on stations” and “walking on space ships” would be added as a DLC after the main game had been released.
Its a great video and I think shows the spirit of what FD would like Elite Dangerous to be. I think they still need to fix a few things on the released version, like mining and fleet groups with players. but, the game itself is a big step forward from the Beta release I was playtesting before launch.
The Elite: Dangerous Beta 3 Trailer showcases a number of the recent changes in the game, released as part of the Beta 3.0 expansion.
Some of these include:
- 2400 systems currently available.
- Mining as an occupation.
- Fuel scooping.
- New ships in the for of the ASP, Federal Dropship and Imperial Clipper.
- Players can own more than one ship.
- The station interface has also changes a great deal.
In the video below is the official docking tutorial released during Alpha 3.0.

The Elite Dangerous E3 trailer, released in 2014, was very well received at the E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) exhibition hosted in Los Angeles.
The Anaconda is currently the most expensive ship a player can own [in Premium Beta 2.02]. From the free sidewinder, the ship costs a whopping 3,863,907 CR and can be purchased from a few places including Freeport in LP 98-132.
While the Lakon type 9 has a larger cargo hold and is cheaper, the Anaconda fulfills the role of a multi-role gunship. It has a fixed mount for a class 8 plasma cannon and enough class 6 hard points for turret mounts to be added.
In the Elite: Dangerous Capital Ship Battle Video, a sidewinder pilot received a distress call from a damaged Federal battlecruiser and agrees to work as a mercenary to attack Imperial fighters.
