Early Footage Warps In From Space
In Elite: Dangerous you will be piloting ships in space, and combat will be a focus of the game. This is the first of many development diaries, and David Braben outlines some of the mechanics that are in the game. It is nothing spectacular right now, but it is just early footage to illustrate things we will see in the game later on. Many details are kept hidden, and will be revealed later in development.
During multiplayer you can play with friends, create groups, or just mix it up and play free for all. Braben goes into detail about other concepts that will be important in multiplayer including the damage models of the ships, salvaging the ships, etc. If you would like to check out more information about Elite: Dangerous, just check out the new Development diary.
