WIS and landing will be a separate expansion, but the list of things being put into the game on release is miles long, ofc I cant find the post anymore but it was impressive, more missions, better exploring, improved trading, better mining and a balance of rewards for said activities. They will also add some more ships so the total of flyable ships at launch will be 15, with an additional 10 being released on a later date.

The Frontier forums is currently in a state of uproar since most people seem to be confused about what and who gets gamma access so good posts just vanish in the process.

So, to clarify, if you bought BETA access or supported the kickstarter you get gamma, if you ONLY bought the merc edition you dont get gamma.


Personally I am looking forward to planetary landings and some spellunking

Nah, Gamma is pre-release. Anyone who bought into the Alpha or Beta has access to it from 22nd Nov til the launch date. You won't be able to buy access to it beyond the 22nd.

Elite have not over charged in my opinion Lugs, the alpha access was a lot but it covers you for life and all the expansions. For a game like this it is just money put up front.

As a X lover you would love this.

We are talking 50 quid now, 35 when released.

You paid what 200 Freedom?, I hope the game and expansions don't cost that combined!

To be fair they do seem to have dropped the "Gamma" term in their newsletter and do just refer to it as pre-release.

And it is released:

Patching now....

Mixed feelings about the game from playing Alpha, Beta, Gamma. Lets see if things make more impact now that the game world is "real" so to speak with other players and no wipes.
