Following an extensive Beta testing period that has spanned much of the last year it appears that Frontier Developments is finally preparing to launch its anticipated virtual reality (VR) compatible space simulation title, Elite: Dangerous. The studio recently revealed that it will be hosting an Elite: Dangerous Premiere Event later this month and has now released a new video documenting the making of the upcoming experience. That video can now be seen below.
At just under 15 minutes in length, the video goes into good detail about the creation of Elite: Dangerous with members of the Frontier Developments staff on hand to talk viewers through it. As the start of the video reveals, this is the 30-year anniversary of the franchise, which started back in 1984 as Elite. This is the first entry in the series to include full support for the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD).
Beta testing for the title remains ongoing, although it is hoped that a full release date will arrive soon. VRFocus will continue to follow Elite: Dangerous, reporting back with any further updates on its progress.
