Elite: Dangerous developed by Frontier Developments is a first person spaceship MMORPG. The galaxy is yours to explore with billions of star systems, planets, moons, and more awaiting your exploration. The three superpowers, the Empire, Federation and Independents rule the galaxy, whom you side with is up to you. Regardless of who you side with you'll be able to become a trader, assassin, pirate, bounty hunter, and overall make space your playground.
Frontier has announced that the stand-alone version of Elite Dangerous: Arena has been pulled from the Frontier Store, Steam and the XBox Store. The decision was made after looking at metrics and discovering that most players play directly from the Elite: Dangerous in-game client. Though originally released as a stand-alone, the number of additional players in Arena did not increase.
SpiderMind Games has started its KickStarter project to bring a robust tabletop RPG based on Elite: Dangerous to the world. KickStarter funds will be used to fund production and publication of a core manual and four supplements to get players started on galactic domination. Elite: Dangerous RPG will use a D10 skill based system with players starting with a basic ship that can progress throughout the campaign.
Executive Producer Michael Brookes has taken to the Elite: Dangerous forum to let players know that the late Carrie Fisher, best known for her portrayal of Leia Organa in the Star Wars movies, will be memorialized in the next update. A new outpost called "Fisher's Rest" will be added in patch 2.3 when it is released.
Frontier Developments has announced that Elite: Dangerous will be heading to PlayStation 4 in Q2 2017. The PS4 version will come complete with the Horizons season pass and custom PS4 features including touch navigation, extra hotkey controls, fast headlook' and will also come with PlayStation 4 Pro support.
No one should go gently into the dark night alone as one Elite: Dangerous player found out recently. CMDR Macedonica traveled to the far reaches of space, finding out too late that he did not have enough fuel to make return journey. He believed that self-destruct was the only way out of the situation, but decided to post on the game's official forums to see if anyone had any other ideas.
