See how trading works in Elite: Dangerous in our video walkthrough

Andy's been getting stuck into the recently launched Elite: Dangerous beta. Armed with a huge metal flight stick and an Oculus Rift, he's been ferrying goods between star systems on a quest for generous profit margins. He's recorded a video showing how it all works, from docking, to hyperspace, to interdiction. It's an eight minute slice of Elite action that shows much of what you'll be doing moment-to-moment when the final game is released.


Andy grew up with PC games, losing countless hours of his youth to Quake and Baldur’s Gate. Today his love for PC gaming is just as strong, and now he loses countless hours of his adult life to them. He loves horror, RPGs, sims, anything set in space, anything set in rainy cyberpunk cities, adventure games, and you.
