Elite: Dangerous Challenge #2 Begins, Race To Elite Ends, and Mac Beta On The Way.

The winners of the first Elite: Dangerous challenge have been announced, a new challenge has been issued and the Mac Beta is almost here.

Incoming orders to all commanders tuned to this frequency. Frontier Developments has issued a bounty on some new prototype cargo. Starting at at 5PM GMT today, this prototype - codenamed Nvidia GeForce Titan - Black will be in stock at an unknown starport in the galaxy. You are to collect and sell the Titan Black prototypes at Godel Ring in the Ededleen system.(You know for science and such.) The first 5 commanders to successfully complete this task will be rewarded with their very own Nvidia GeForce Titan Black.

The Elite: Dangerous Beta will be warping its way to Mac on Tuesday, March 31st, 2015. All commanders who are already combating, exploring, or trading their way through the PC beta have access to the Mac beta. You can gain access to the launcher on your Elite: Dangerous account. Frontier Developments forums will have information about availability times for the Mac beta. It was also announced that Elite: Dangerous will be making its way to Xbox One, and (somewhere down the road) to PlayStation as well.

    The guy who won the first competition said he played for around 20 hours a day. I don't think I'm in the same league :)
