Frontier Developments has released the first Elite: Dangerous teaser trailer and added a PayPal pledging option to its crowd-funding drive.

The project is two-thirds of the way to its target of £1.25 million with 15 days to go. The Elite: Dangerous Kickstarter needs £430,012 to succeed - that's about £30,000 a day from now until the end. It's going to be tight.

UK-based Kickstarter projects like Elite: Dangerous require those pledging to enter their credit cards details into the site, unlike US projects, Frontier explained.

“We have had many requests for PayPal pledging and donation,” said boss and Elite co-creator David Braben. “We're delighted to act based on that feedback from our enthusiastic community, and very thankful for their positivity and efforts in helping to get this game made.”
