Get a load of this capital ship combat in Elite Dangerous


7:00 PM on 09.13.2013



Typical, you wait for a great space sim to arrive, then two get successfully crowdfunded. Elite: Dangerous (which is still a funny title) didn't manage to pull in the $20 million that Chris Robert's Star Citizen crowdfunding campaign did but if this trailer is anything to go by, the game is looking pretty good.

This trailer is showing off combat between capital ships whilst fighters swarm over each vessel. It doesn't appear this footage is in-game, however the description on the YouTube page says that making the video has informed things like GUI, ship materials, and special effects.

Let's hope the game plays just like this trailer as I've been wanting to fly through a big capital ship again, just like you could in X-Wing vs. Tie Fighter.

David Braben hopes Elite: Dangerous will be 'future proof'

You can now buy into the Elite Dangerous beta

Paying for early access to a game now seems the norm, and whilst I've no objection to the concept, I've rarely put money down for a game that's still in alpha. Especially not when that alpha access costs £200. Elite Da...more

Watching Elite be named as one of the 25 most important games of all time on Charlie Brooker's How Videogames Changed the World, and seeing the first trailer for No Man's Sky reminded me of why I love spaceship games. While ...more

As someone who would really like to see the space-combat genre revitalized, it's been neat to see people like Chris Roberts of Star Citizen and now David Braben of Elite: Dangerous find success on Kickstarter. If anyone can p...more

Mighty Tactical Shooter is a rad looking turn-based shmup

Usually when one thinks about shmups, precision motor skill and quick reaction are what come to mind. Mighty Tactical Shooter turns that completely on its head. Though precision movement and shot placement is still required,...more

The Deer God funded, now coming to Wii U and Xbox One too

Did you get your pledge in for The Deer God? I didn't, because these days I try to severely limit the number of projects I back on Kickstarter, but damn did it look neat -- visually and conceptually. Crescent Moon Games ende...more

Platformer Freedom Planet borrows from the Sega Genesis greats

Freedom Planet looks like a lost Sega Genesis gem, but it's actually a brand new action-platform game created by GalaxyTrail. I remember hearing about it a while back from Tony Ponce -- first in 2012 and again last year when...more
