Frontier Developments the developers of the recently launched Elite Dangerous that was successfully crowdfunded over on the Kickstarter website and has rebuilt the iconic Elite game from the 1980’s for today’s PC systems.
Has announced a new prize of £10,000 for the first Elite Dangerous player to reach the rank of Triple Elite status with other prizes available along the way for reaching the ranks of Elite in either combat, exploration or trading.
To take part Elite Dangerous players must start from a fresh save on the release version of Elite: Dangerous, starting with the Sidewinder and 1,000 CR, and use ‘Open Play’ multiplayer mode only, explains Frontier Developments.
Elite Dangerous players can use the slight advantage of the Eagle starship offered as part of Elite: Dangerous’ Mercenary Edition, but otherwise it should be a level playing field, the developers explains. The development team will also be on the lookout for any cheating and there is no time limit.
Requires include :
a. Start on or after release of the full game (for some this will mean you will have to voluntarily clear you save on or after the release)
b. Start with the Sidewinder start position and 1000 CR.
c. Not cheat. We will manually look at the save files of the potential winners to verify this. The winners will be determined in our sole opinion and our decision is final.
d. If you choose to claim one or more of the £1,000 prizes you are ineligible for the £10,000 prize.
e. Play wholly in Open Play mode (not solo or friends groups)
f. Participation is subject to the payment of any prize not being prohibited under or contrary to applicable law in your country.
f. Not be an employee of Frontier Developments, or family members or direct associates. Ambassadors are OK.
