That's a lot of game for a fiver. Not a game for everyone but as it's Elite you know what you're in for.
and there's me just blown about £20 quid on something i didn't particularly need. nuts. i would have gone for this
How much content do you actually get with this? Will I regret not getting a pricier version?

And then budget for a joystick, and a VR headset, and wave bye to the real world for the next 6 months.
Elite is no game, it is a way of life
Tried this for quite a while, but it seemed to largely consist of very long voyages where you meet nobody at all, followed by the occasional fight where you get blown out of the sky by a ship about 10 levels higher than you. The trading was quite cool, but the fighting seemed very unbalanced. Has it improved it all?

Would love to try it with VR, mind.

Nah, I put a few bets on at the bookies
Ok good deal but 1) I've heard you really need expansions to play multi (and this is a multi game) 2) you need HOTAS + VR probably 3) you're well behind
Honestly likely still worth this.

You don't need expansions for multiplayer. But remember there are millions of systems, and although there are usually between 5000 and 7000 players online at the same time, they won't all be on the same server instance. In fact, there used to be a 32 player limit, this may be up to 64 or 128 now. For multicrew then yes, but more fun starting off by yourself anyway.

So yeah, the liklihood of running into another human player outside of the famous systems is near 0. In 18 months, playing on and off, I've probably met 3 or 4. Its lonely out there.
Purchased... Thanks OP!
And remember the Fuel Rats if you find yourself with an empty gas tank.
This sale should last until monday when I get paid again so i'll grab it then,

i should be ok with minimum specs as well - i've got an i3 processor but plenty of ram

So if I've got the original release of the game, can I just add Horizons Season Pass to that, or do I need some intermediate version as well?
If you have VR and you haven't picked this up yet this is the one of the best VR experiences there is. Even the simple act of flying out of your bay and leaving a space station is amazing.

If you don't have VR it's a great space trucking simulator anyway. Most people get bored after 100-200hrs but that's a lot of entertainment for a fiver. Ignore the season pass and just get the base game.

It is absolutely possible to fly well with mouse and keyboard. It is in my opinion a lot more fun to fly with dual sticks though.

I have covered over 200k light years outside the bubble and meeting a real person is rare
It is like to animals meeting in the wild unsure what each others intentions are but have met some amazing people who want to help and travel with you you learn so much
Multiplayer where you just sit in someone else's ship and see stuff which you not normally see in your travels while talking to them is great
But.... and this is the but like real life there are others and only met 5 in the years I have played that are out to ruin your day and hard earned effort
1.do the training until comfortable
2.Always travel with enough credit to rebuy
3. Travel in solo or private group to start off with. look up mobius elite dangerous in Google and join them
It is a way of life and a great way to pass the time if you have nothing better to do

Don't give up it isn't for everyone but it is one heck of a game
And now beyond is on its way it can only get better
Or wait for star citizen

You're making me tempted to look at Occulus Rift again. So I spend £10 on a bargain game upgrade, then £400 on a VR kit to run it on (not to mention another £250 shortly after to upgrade my graphics card).
I have been playing this for years....
It can be played with a mouse and keyboard, or gamepad and that will certainly give you a good idea of what is involved. I do recommend an eventual upgrade to HOTAS and while I do have a vive, it's just as good without the headset as with. Vive is awesome for combat, but for trading and exploring, I wouldn't' recommend it. It's probably the best fleshed out game to use with a Vive that I have.
Without Horizons, you don't get: planetary landing, engineers, and a few other essential components. Depends how far you want to go really.
Do you think to start the game now would be ok, or would it be a bit pointless seeing as it's been going for so long?
Well there is always something to do, even if you just play CQC (an arena fight)
You have to invest time and lots of it, its a beautiful game and there is plenty to explore. I probably have over a thousand hours played and I am elite ranking for exploration, combat and trading. It is a major time investment, but at that price is an absolute bargain. The game has a long pathway ahead with more expansions to come.
I've had a vive since it launched and always had this game in mind. I also had a HOTAS in mind to go with it. Have barely touched the Vive though in months.

I’ve never visited the real world. Am I missing anything?
If anyone has VR just buy this, worth every penny. Bit of a learning curve but playable using an Xbox controller. It’s absolutely (inter)stellar in VR!!!

I fired up the Rift with this and the first time I appeared in the cockpit was one of those 'wow' moments. Unfortunately I found myself standing behind my pilots chair and as I peered over the top I saw my headless disembodied avatar sitting in it - most odd feeling! I would like to know if the Horizons expansion is worth the money??

Oh and I have been using it with the Steam Controller which seems to cover most of the functions needed and works pretty well.

I know nothing about VR I thought games were one or the other headset so does this game work with both the Vive and Rift?

Pause using Xbox Button, reset view .. Press A - Problem solved!

There are exclusive titles on both platforms - Vive uses Steam and Oculus Rift uses Oculus Home, but most if not all VR games that are redeemed on Steam (bar a few exceptions like LA Noire / Fallout 4) are tailored more towards The Vive so while you can get them working, they're a bit of a faff to play. With Oculus-exclusives like Robo Recall you can use a piece of software called ReVive to get that stuff working on Vive (i believe, im an oculus owner myself)

Steam uses SteamVR which is usable on both Vive and Oculus, so most stuff that works on that is generally cross compatible.

Cheers for the explanation
Nearly bought a Rift today. Amazon had one 'as new' in their warehouse deals section for £335. But when I clicked on 'buy' it had gone. Shame - I could almost have justified spending that much.
Not that I waited up until after 12:30am to ensure that as soon as my wages went in i could jump right on this and pick it up or anything

Looking forward to giving it a go. I go as far back as being one of the few kids in my class who actually mastered the lenslok on the original spectrum version ..
holy crap flying is hard on this !!
