Elite: Dangerous' beta 3 update is cosmically massive

Elite: Dangerous

Elite: Dangerous’ beta 3 update is a big ‘un, tossing brand new ships, the Imperial Clipper and Federal Dropshop, asteroid mining and philanthropy missions into the already meaty galactic sandbox, while also expanding the galaxy itself. It’s 350 light years long, which is mind bogglingly large. 


Servers went down at 19:30 GMT, but the update can now be downloaded and the servers are back up. And since you can own multiple ships now, why not hunt down an Imperial Clipper? 

Some players are reporting server issues, but Frontier says it’s aware of the problems and is looking into it at the moment. 

The developer expects the release to be similar to the last big update, with further updates occurring over the next few days to iron out any problems that might crop up in the middle of space. 

Take a gander at the next page for the full patch notes.

i backed Star Citizen then found Elite the same day and just had to back them as well. Loving Elite and the developer team are amazing. They are quick to fix things and really do listen to us with feedback. Game looks and play amazing. I use Voice commands and head tracking. Just need a joystick and throttle now. (wife do you hear me)

Every time they release a new patch for this, it makes me wish I had backed them instead of Star Citizen.

I'm a terrible person and backed both.

I had originally backed Star Citizen, but got it refunded. Whilst it looks good, it's development too slow (and stuff keeps getting pushed back) and I'm impatient.

So now I got Elite instead :)

I have no doubt I'll get Star Citizen if/when it comes out, it looks to be amazing.
