The beta period for Elite: Dangerous has now closed and the Gamma phase has begun. The launch of the game is three weeks away, but there's still plenty of work to be done.
Right now, I'm installing the Gamma build of the game. Restrictions to areas that you want to go have now been lifted. Kickstarter ships are now in place. The Python and the Orca are now flyable. Of course, a few bug fixes have been thrown in there.
Oh and the big thing? Players can now visit Sol. Yes, take a trip to Earth if you like. Should be a fun place to visit don't you think?
Elite: Dangerous will hit PCs on December 16th.
