I pre ordered this ages ago, something I rarely do these days. This one however looks very good indeed and may finally be a replacement to my trusty old copy of RCT3.

I thought this was Alpha access only and expires when the full version is launched. you then have to buy the full game?

Various tiers were available: The Standard pre-order only included beta access (Oct). Early Bird+ were more expensive and provided access to the alpha builds too. They all include a full Steam copy of the final game in Nov.
There may have been a low-cost supporter option but that was basically a donation towards development.

The official Steam page is now live but I don't think it includes beta access for pre-orders.

This game gets a lot of hate, but while improvements could certainly be made, it doesn't deserve most of it. It's a lovely game that creates a great atmosphere and really pulls you in to the immersive experience it offers. It also lets you do whatever you want rather than spoon feeding you. Some people don't like that which is perfectly fine, this isn't the game for you. For everybody else, give it a try and make your own mind up at this price. I paid the full RRP for Elite and then had to buy Horizons also, I begrudge paying more of course, but the game is great none the less.
Side note, make sure you play with a flight stick or you'll be missing out, if you have the ability to use a head tracker such as Trackir 5, it will improve the games impressiveness no end.

There is nothing to do, that's the problem.
If (when :D) I get a VR device, this is definitely going to be a game I pick up. In my head it will be awesome, if it's even half as good as I hope it will be it's going to be money well spent.

You don't like it, we get it.
Why do Elite fanboys get so butthurt when the game is criticised? It's a boring, repetitive game that becomes tedious after 20 hours, deal with it. I was a huge fan of the old games but the new one has all substance of the one I played on the Amiga 500 in 1993, not acceptable for a modern game.


Even if we accept your aggressive views on it (I don't) £13 for 20hrs of fun seems like a fairly good deal surely... And there is more content coming of course.

I haven't even played it, post your childish drivel elsewhere.

I'm probably going to enjoy playing this more than Elite Dangerous.... Oh the nostalgia...
Give them my Steam login details? I think not!

I could never dock my craft. Had to get a friend to do it once and buy an autopilot.
Aye that was a right pain in the rear, I had to get my brother to do it

I found it was quite easy with the Acorn analogue joy sticks as they were non-centering so you could fine tune the roll to match the space station spin, then leave it and just vary the trust. I did buy an autopilot but on more than one occasion that failed and crashed me into the space station.

Google for "elite TNK" for a fantastic pc port of Elite
I find it crashes on hyperspace. Had the same problem several years ago when I tried this emulator on my old pc.

Cold, they are trying to sell you a tech demo before they release the actual game. This is a shell of a game, impressive for about 10 minutes until you realise how empty it is. I'm sure they will flesh it out over the next year with their first season pass, but asking people who shelled out 40 quid for nothing to pay an extra 30 quid for it is a joke. I for one won't be giving them any more money. I'm sure I'll get blasted by fan boys for this post. Will just go to show their buyers remorse :)

Have you tried joining a player group? Elite is best played multi-player with others. Have a look at the Mobius PvE group. They are really good. Or Dead Men Walking (www.deadmen.co.uk) - we play Elite and Star Citizen as well as GTA V and ARMA among others.


​Yes I have friends who bought the game, it was not possible for us to play together as you were dropped into separate instances. I understand this is now fixed but I'm afraid it's not enough to bring me back to it.

you won't get blasted, I mean why would anyone have a problem with your completely valid perspective just because it's different to theirs
;)
I bought Elite last night and started playing, there is a learning curve, it's worth doing the training missions and watching the YouTube videos. Flying is a little tricky with the mouse, back in the day, the BBC only used keyboard and it worked well. Took me a while to work out how to request landing permission for a space station. Managed to do 2 missions last night before realising it was 2am!

This or star citizens, which would people recommend?

Elite now, Star Citizen later. Both good games, but quite different in approach. Star Citizen is in a rough-and-ready state right now (it's in Alpha) and while it needs good spec. hardware to run, it shows a lot of promise. If you have the specs for it, then definitely jump in with one of the basic ships. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Elite is a fully released game with two updates and a major expansion due before the end of the year. It has a massive galaxy to explore and various career paths, ranks, factions and a wide selection of ships. The next (free) update (1.4) due early next month adds player factions and a mini-game called "Close Quarters Combat Championship" which is a multi-player arena combat game in ships outside the main Elite game. The 1.4 update is in open Beta now and playable for all, if you buy the game.

There are loads of videos of both games on YouTube and I'd recommend watching them as both games have a learning curve. As for "which" I'd say "why choose?". Get both.
