Some of you may remember playing Elite back in the day, or maybe you have played Eve, freelancer, star trek, pretty much any free roam space game.
Well on the 16th Elite Dangerous get's released & it's awesome.
I was a kickstarter backer & paid extra to get Beta access so I have been playing it a bit, logged 82 hours so far according to RAPTR but it's more than that.
This game has almost everything, you can pick your own path, be a trader, explorer, miner, bounty hunter, pirate or soldier. It's completely open & you could do all if you so wish.
The Galaxy contains 400 billion start systems. Accurately modelled (although not 100%) on the milky way. You can recognise constellations, star systems & the like, you can travel to them, explore distant worlds, all that good stuff.
It's multiplayer but due to the size of the game area you won't see that many players kicking around although there are plenty of NPC's to interact with.
The game is a buy once thing although there will be future expansions that you can buy, planetary landing & other such things.
So are you going to enlist & become a commander of your own ship?
