Elite: Dangerous Newsletters

Screen capture from Elite: Dangerous of an Imperial Clipper ship close to the I Bootis star.

I’ve never posted anything in here about games, though I do rather enjoy them from time to time. The darker evenings of autumn and winter lend themselves more to this kind of activity than any other time, and there’s one upcoming release I’m very much looking forward to. Elite: Dangerous.

People have a lot of history with this game; I for one remember being terrible at it when I was little, trying to dock into a spinning rectangle on my Dad’s BBC Micro. The sound effects from that computer still have the ability to make me jump out of my skin even today.

So what is the purpose of this post, you may ask? Well, the release date for Elite is 16th December and there’s a bit of kerfuffle about what’s going to gave made it into the game by that date. Will all the ships be there? Will there be aliens? Will that stuttering bug be sorted?

I can’t answer any of those questions, but what I can do is point people to the fantastic Newsletters, which have been released throughout the development process. They’re an insight into the game that people seem to forget about, so I thought I would provide a handy list, as the official archive list doesn’t contain them all.

If I’ve messed up a link, please let me know. A tweet is probably the best way, as I’ve been known to miss things in the comments.

Gah, as I finish this, I realise that someone’s already made a list in the Elite: Dangerous Forums.

This list will probably become horribly out of date, so I’d check that link above if I were you.
