Thursday, 6th February 2014 09:33 GMT By Dave Cook

Elite: Dangerous has entered its second alpha phase, and Frontier Developments has added multiplayer to the mix. There’s even a new dev diary trailer to show PvP in action.

The clip above features insight from David Braben and some gameplay footage.

The Elite: Dangerous alpha now includes free-for-all battles, two-team fights, a co-op event that sees players defending a damaged Federal battlecruiser and improvements to the ‘Pirates and Bounty Hunters’ mode, giving players a more accurate picture of what to expect in the full game.

To gain access to the Elite: Dangerous alpha you’ll need to back the game by buying it. Go here if you want to do so.

    That seems to get better and better … i´m really looking forward to it. I hope it can recreate the feeling i had with the C64 Version back in the 80s :D At least a little bit.

    I’m also amused that they’re adding more stuff all the time; they actually have a game there to show off. And all the while they’re not making nearly as much money as Star Citizen.

    Which goes to show that the best way to make money in this world is to con and manipulate people, because the average person (which represents the majority) isn’t nearly self aware enough to question whether they’re being manipulated, and barely ever do unless they’ve been put through years of suffering.

    I’m just reminded of the Candy Crush Saga supporters, here, too. One that even got kind of violent when I suggested that it might be a very exploitative practise under the guise of a difficult game, one created to weave the illusion of getting harder to the point where the user could receive ‘just a little more help’ from the IAP store.

    Sometimes I wonder just how uncommon awareness and the ability to question something is. I think questions are important, especially when it comes to spending money.
