Elite: Dangerous Beta 2.05 Due Imminently

Today sees the developer launch yet another update for the experience, bringing with it a number of new tweaks to refine the experience.

Beta 2.05 will mainly focus on improving Elite: Dangerous‘ loading times. According to the developer, loading in hyperspace, starting the videogame up and coming out of supercruise should all be reduced. These appear to be the only improvements made as the developer doesn’t mention any additional features in its Twitter post revealing the incoming patch. The update is expected to go live at 11:50 BST today for all Beta players.

Elite: Dangerous features full support for the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD). Players will sit in the cockpit of a space craft and pilot it around a number of different areas of space, taking part in multiplayer battles and more. The title is yet to receive a solid release date on PC. VRFocus will continue to follow the title’s progress as it heads towards launch, reporting back with any further updates.
