Elite: Dangerous is now available on Steam, for both the PC and Mac

Frontier Developments unleashes Elite: Dangerous onto Steam

By Anthony Garreffa from Apr 3, 2015 @ 1:00 CDT

Surprising gamers all across the world today, Frontier Developments made its space title Elite: Dangerous available on Steam. Now that Elite: Dangerous has reached Valve's digital distribution platform, we should expect sales to go to infinity, and beyond.

While it's good news for those who haven't purchased it yet, gamers who have already thrown money at the game are asking some very valid questions. If you've backed the game at any stage, or bought into the beta, will you receive a Steam key too? Alternatively, can you add Elite: Dangerous to your Steam library? As a backer of the game, I'd like to know too, as I don't think I should have to purchase it, again.

Executive Producer on Elite: Dangerous, Michael Brookes, answered a question on Elite's official forums on whether there would be Steam achievements and trading cards for those who didn't purchase it through Steam, where Brookes replied with "Not immediately, but we'll see". It would be nice to see a Steam key provided to those who purchased it before Elite: Dangerous reached the world's largest online games retailer, but let's hope its sooner, rather than later.
