An extra ship? Sure, that sounds good
While there’s no firm release date, you can pre-purchase a copy of Elite: Dangerous from Frontier Developments. To sweeten the deal, if you order now you’ll get some digital goodies like an extra Eagle Fighter ship which sounds like a handy thing to have lying around. There’s also a Day One skin, digital art book, and players guide.
If you decide you want to put your money where your mouth is, it’ll cost you $50/£35/€40 which will save you a little bit on the final price of $59.99/£39.99/€49.99. t’s worth nothing that buying early won’t get you into the beta right now but considering there’s still no firm release date, you’re just as well waiting.
