With upcoming virtual reality (VR) compatible videogame Elite: Dangerous still hoping to release in 2014, creator Frontier Developments is running out of days to actually launch the title. The developer remains dedicated to updating the already-available Beta version of the title, which currently sits at version 3.01, but there’s no word on when the full launch might happen. That could change next month as Frontier Developments has teased the ‘Elite: Dangerous Premiere Event’.
There is currently little information about the event itself, other than it will be taking place on 22nd November 2014. The developer has also released a Vine clip to add to the tease as seen below, showcasing eight different silhouettes of various craft. Interestingly, not every ship looks like an actual space craft, though it’s impossible to tell with these basic outlines. What could the Premiere Event be? Will the full launch date finally be revealed? Will it be a live event or something else? Hopefully these questions and more will all be answered.
