Here is a new trailer for the Kickstarted Elite: Dangerous, it’s a mixture of real engine footage and some post processing after it was shot. The cockpit has been mocked up as they are currently working on the real version. The developer also mentions that ship destruction is sped up for the cinematic effect, the real game ships will be a little more durable.

Looks very impressive, have to say I prefer to see large ship battles over the smaller dogfighters, they feel more powerful and weighty to me. Elite: Dangerous is due out sometime in 2014. I think it could well be a worthy competitor to Star Citizen.
