Welcome to Elite Dangerous Newsletter #76.
This week we're looking ahead to Powerplay and to E3. Powerplay will be available to beta players on Tuesday, May 26 and Executive Producer Mike Brookes has more details in his Developer Update below.
The beta galaxy will have the usual cut-price ships and equipment for testing purposes, and to thoroughly test the update we're accelerating Powerplay's phases of action. You'll find the Powers acting more quickly than they will in the final game, so we're encouraging backers with beta access to dive in and start reshaping the temporary beta galaxy as soon as it's available.
Read on for more about E3, the winner of our Ctrl+Alt+Space film competition and an exclusive peek at the Lakon Diamondback in game.
As always, you can hear the latest news and updates directly from the development team on our Forums, Twitter, Facebook and right here in the newsletter every week, and we're always eager to hear your feedback. Have a great weekend!
