Elite: Dangerous – Alpha Phase 2.0 Multiplayer is now live for backers

The backers of Frontier Developments space trading  and combat sim Elite: Dangerous can now go all pew-pew on each other. The multiplayer component is live.

Glorious! It’s still possible to jump in the Elite Alpha on the official site, but be warned: it is pricy. Anyway, there are ‘two further major Alpha releases to roll out before Elite: Dangerous reaches Premium Beta stage’.  The game is expected to release on PC and Mac in March 2014. Oh space sim, how I missed thee. Some Elite: Dangerous Alpha Phase 2.0 Multiplayer features below:

Alpha Phase 2.0 – Multiplayer provides backers the opportunity to play against each other in four distinct multiplayer scenarios:

  • Free-for-all melee
  • Pick your side in a two-team melee
  • Co-operative defense of a crippled Federal battlecruiser
  • A more sophisticated ‘Pirates and Bounty Hunters’ mode which hints at the fluid choices and roles players will experience on a much greater scale in the final game
