Elite Dangerous Overview
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.
Starting with only a small starship and a few credits, players do whatever it takes to earn the skill, knowledge, wealth and power to survive in a futuristic cutthroat galaxy and to stand among the ranks of the iconic Elite. In an age of galactic superpowers and interstellar war, every player’s story influences the unique connected gaming experience and handcrafted evolving narrative. Governments fall, battles are lost and won, and humanity’s frontier is reshaped, all by players’ actions.
The Elite Dangerous: Odyssey DLC launched on May 19, 2021. This new expansion to Elite Dangerous allows players to disembark from their ships and explore planet surfaces in first-person.

Elite Dangerous: Odyssey invites you to become a true pioneer.
See the galaxy like never before. Touch down on breathtaking planets powered by stunning new tech, soak in suns rising over unforgettable vistas, discover outposts and settlements, and explore with unrestricted freedom.
