Elite: Dangerous will cost $ 60 when it’s released on PC, but you can preorder the game’s Mercenary Edition right now for $ 50 and some extra rewards, developer Frontier Developments has announced.
If you preorder the Mercenary Edition, you’ll get a digital download of the game, an Eagle fighter ship docked in a secondary location in the game, and an exclusive pack of ship paint jobs. You’ll also get a digital players guide, a “day one” ship decal, a digital concept art book, and more digital rewards to be announced over the coming weeks. If you’ve already preordered the game, don’t worry. You’ll receive everything that’s included in the Mercenary Edition too.
Frontier Developments have yet to announce when exactly it will release this year, but you can start playing the game right now by buying your way into the beta for $ 75, which will get you the Mercenary edition as well. Frontier Developments CEO David Braben also recently said that the game could come to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. For more on Elite: Dangerous, check out GameSpot’s previous coverage.
