Elite Dangerous is the latest generation of space trading and combat simulator games based on the Elite video game series launched back in 1984, and is the fourth instalment. The latest Elite: Dangerous game is being set roughly 50 years after the events of Frontier: First Encounters, The game will also enjoy a return of the Thargoids, the insectoid aliens from the original game.
“Elite: Dangerous retains the basic premise of previous games – players start with a spaceship and a small amount of money and make their own way in an open galaxy, furthering themselves either legally or illegally, through trading, bounty-hunting, piracy and assassination.
David Braben has described the game as a mix of the original Elite and Frontier, describing it as closer to Frontier in terms of the way that the galaxy works, but with the “visceral and seat-of-the-pants” combat of the original Elite.”
