Frontier Developments has announced that the launch day for Elite: Dangerous has finally arrived after months of successful alpha and beta testing. Players can grab a copy of the game, begin playing and make a difference in the outcome of the story.
In addition, players can participate in the Race to Elite:
Race to Elite
Since 1984, players have aspired to be called Elite. In 1984 only the greatest combat pilots were known by the prestigious title.
Today in Elite: Dangerous, Elite status is awarded as recognition for total mastery in either combat, trading or exploration, with the best of the best aspiring to become Elite in all three.
For most, the journey to Elite will be a long one. For some, it will become a race.
Frontier Developments is offering a separate £1,000 cash prize to the first player who attains Elite status for each of combat, trading and exploration, and a further £10,000 prize for the first player to attain the coveted Triple Elite status for total mastery of all three. Player’s choosing to claim one of the £1,000 cash prizes will make them ineligible for the ‘triple’ prize, though one player could get more than one of the £1,000 prizes.
