Developer Frontier Developments has released their newest Alpha 4 version for successfully kickstarted space sci-fi simulator title Elite: Dangerous, bringing with it hyperspace jumping.
"Alpha 4 vastly expands scale, scope and depth over the previous Alpha versions," notes the official website
on the new version. "Set within a 200 cubic light-year volume containing five star systems in contested space with spectacular sights such as an unusual quaternary star system and ringed gas giants."
"The five Alpha 4 star systems are themselves set within 400,000,000 star systems of the Milky Way galaxy, all of which are moving correctly; spinning and orbiting in an incredible ballet. Whilst exploration is currently limited to the five Alpha 4 systems, the ‘night sky’ is accurate wherever you travel."
