The British space trading game Elite: Dangerous has been dated for the PC. There’s to be a launch party and premiere at The Imperial War Museum in the UK on 22nd November, which will be livecast to the Web by Twitch.tv. Followed by the sale of the retail game from 16th December 2014 onwards. Pre-orders are currently running at $50 (£35 UK) from the game’s website, for a bundle (‘Mercenary Pack‘) that will include a digital book of the game’s concept art and digital player’s guide. Sadly I couldn’t get to find out if they accept PayPal or not, as the checkout process was blocked by a demand to register before I got that far. First rule of ecommerce: sites should never let a user-registration demand block an in-process sale.
