Frontier Developments has announced that the alpha phase of development for Elite: Dangerous has ended and that the premium closed beta is scheduled to begin today. Premium beta players will be able to download a single-player version of the game to play until the full multiplayer version of the game goes live on May 30th.
David Braben, CEO of Frontier, said:
“The Alpha process has worked well for us. We have gradually built out the key elements of the game, first locally, with single player combat, then with a few thousand players across the internet. On 30th May the Premium Beta extends this to many thousands of players worldwide, with an increasingly rich game.
I want to take this opportunity to thank all those who have played such an important role in Alpha testing, and I’m very happy that we will continue to benefit from their valuable input as they test Beta builds approximately 2 weeks in advance of release.
On 30th May we move into a new phase of Premium Beta testing, and I’m delighted to be able to welcome a significant numbers of new players to Elite: Dangerous today.”
