Elite: Dangerous


Elite: Dangerous is the sequel to popular space trading and combat simulator, Elite. In the game, you pilot a spacecraft in an open-world galaxy that’s similar to the Milky Way and built using a 1:1 scale.

Like previous versions, you start with a small amount of money and are free to make your way in the world through a variety of legal and illegal choices. You can become a trader, a pirate, a bounty hunter, an assassin, or a combination of some or all of these.

The game universe is so large – there are roughly 400 billion procedurally generated solar systems – that you’ll never truly explore it all, meaning that there will always be something new for you to discover.

Due to Elite: Dangerous being an MMORPG, you’ll meet plenty of other players in game, and the actions that you all collectively take will affect the universe as a whole. However, should you choose to do illegal things in-game, the actions you take against other players will not go unpunished. This is because in the game you can develop a criminal record and will become hunted by the authorities in those solar systems that are rich enough to afford law enforcement.
