Elite: Dangerous trailer shows off multiplayer alpha action

Chris Roberts's Star Citizen may be the big crowdfunded multiplayer space bonanza grabbing everyone's attention and money but hey, let's not forget about Elite: Dangerous. The long, long-awaited new space sim from Frontier Developments has rolled out the first version of its multiplayer to backers, and a new trailer details an early taste of what we'll be able to get up to with our chums in cold, unforgiving space space.

Now it's finally ready to give a new Elite a proper go and has turned to Kickstarter (where else?) for $2 million, but the pitch is remarkably barebones, hoping that tugging at your nostalgia gland will be sufficient.
