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.
