Great price, hugely ambitious game, but learning curve is steep and much of the game involves ALOT of tedium travelling from planet to planet doing virtually nothing. They really need to add some major storylines, better missions etc.
Space sim style game isn't it.

Also best true VR game.

Best played with HOTAS.

Yeah, very good price, but I personally find it a very boring game. Once did a trade run that involved me flying in a straight line through space for 40+ minutes. No turning, no combat, no getting pulled over, nothing...

It takes about 100 hours to get into the good stuff, but by then you may be bored of the actual content (or lack there of).

Again, I was so excited to play it in VR, but it's the only game I have ever played where I felt I needed to play another game at the same time, say on my mobile phone. Too much flying in a straight line.

When I put on my Vive, yeah, it was really amazing to look at while I was flying around a space station, but when it came time for me to fly through space it immediately became dull. I wanted to play something on my phone to keep my mind occupied, but was suddenly painfully aware that I couldn't. All I could do was stare at the blackness.

Played many many vr games that I would consider massively superior.

Dunno, I just use the VR for when I'm doing combat stuff or out exploring planets, like when I have something specific and active to do in game. Go into an asteroid field and shoot stuff up with a co-pilot or something.

For hauling stuff around or the slower stuff I do desktop, for those activities it's one of those games where it's good to have the telly on too.

It certainly has sim leanings, and sim games tend to have slower more realistic aspects, it's an accurate representation of our galaxy (well as much as technically possible at this time), space is big.

Still the best true VR experience out there IMHO, like a legit game rather than one of the many many shooting experiences and similar that VR tends to be.

Is the season pass time limited in any way? I'm tempted but its likely to be a while before I get around to playing more than a quick look at the game
I kinda lost my patience with this game when I set coordinates to a specific planet, and the estimated travel time was 1.74 lightyears in real time...

After 2,481 hours I've never been bored. There's always something to do.

If you have Horizons, you'll get the coming years content "Beyond" free.

Obsidian Ant - a YouTube'r who does a lot of Elite, Kerbal and Star Citizen videos has summarised the latest Beyond announcements here. He has posted a number of informative videos on all these games.

The whole "have to fly for 40 minutes" thing is a classic trick played on new commanders. There's a station called Hutton Orbital which is .2ly away and other players tell new players to go there for a free Anaconda. There isn't one, obviously.

You can get credits fairly easily. The current game has far more options that Elite had at release.

I would recommend a joystick to play. You can use an XBOX controller or you can buy a basic HOTAS for £39.
