'Elite' sequel seeks Kickstarter funding

By
Elite: Dangerous has been announced as a new sequel to the 1980 space trading classic.

Game designer David Braben has turned to Kickstarter to fund the project, and is seeking £1,250,000 to help Frontier Developments get it off the ground.

Elite: Dangerous is being billed as a natural successor to the original Elite and its sequel frontier, with 3D graphics and multiplayer support.

Players will start out with a small craft and modest resources, but can trade, pirate and bounty hunt their way to wealth and power in a procedurally-generated, open-world.

"Up to now Elite has been worked upon by a small team as a 'skunk-works' activity in the background as availability permits," said Braben.

"Nevertheless, we have been preparing; laying the technology and design foundations for when the time is right. And that time is now."

Elite: Dangerous is targeted for release on PC in 2014.
