Is the game any good. I played the original years ago and enjoyed it.

I found it incredibly frustrating...good concept but didn't grip me

Very steep learning curve, but one of my favourite games on the PS4

If you liked any of the older versions you will like this one. Docking computer as always makes the game easier just don't pick a fight with a ship that's been heavily upgraded by engineers.

ZX Spectrum Elite player here. How they crammed so much into 48x is unbelievable, including the Blue Danube soundtrack! I bet this version uses a bit more than 48k.

Elite was my fave game in the 80s. Was playing Alite on android which was very hard until I bought this for my PS4. I agree that its an incredibly steep learning curve and I was not enjoying it at first. Once you figure it out and learn to pick the right fights in the extraction zones and get assists from the local feds you'll soon make enough money to progress. Currently loving it

Echo what others have said - it’s a great game once you’ve learned what to do. Lots of guides on YouTube. Recommend you get the full version with all the extras. There are a few graphical tweets over the BBC version..

Games to complicated gave up trying to learn how to fly the ship warp jump etc

The DLC IS £20 on its own so the Deluxe version is definitely worth the extra.

I’ve already got the disc Deluxe Edition and I’ve redeemed the code but if I bought the standard ed would the DLC upgrade it?

I have it on PC. Been playing it on and off since launch. It's not the most exciting game in the world but if you're just looking for a chill-out game then this is probably the one. There is a lot more to do in it than in the original. Currently, I'm in the middle of nowhere just exploring. Outside the "bubble", there are only a handful of stations so it's a very lonely place to be.

If the Deluxe edition includes the Horizons expansion then go for that. Otherwise you won't have the ability to land on planets.

It should do as long as it is the same region (ie UK/EU, US etc..)
If you use this link if it says redeemed/download then you are golden....

Excellent concept , I have it on the PC , but it sure requires a lot of time and dedication to get gud !!! that much is for sure , I must of put like 35 hours into the game and I am still only a little bit wiser from hour zero....and I consider my self fairly good at games !

Thanks op

I thought it was a decent game.

Then I tried it with the Vive and a proper joystick.

It's spectacular.

Yep looks like I’m good to go, this would be my 4th dip after the Xbox pre-release and £95 for the Kickstarter

No where near as good as the original.

I bought this and got rid of it. It was was to difficult and laborious than it needed to be playing this was like pulling teeth. I know its not perfect but No Mans Sky was like a breath of fresh air compared to this (with the updates )

Wasn't around for the original, but I love it. Fantastic game. Feels amazing to play. Well worth a punt at a tenner. And you can get a decent joystick for £35.

If you liked the original Elite, then you will not be disappointed. The current game is a big improvement over the original, but it is not perfect and does have its quirks. The developers are keen to build on the foundations and add improvements to gameplay over time.

I was looking to buy this game but not sure if it worth it. Is this game pretty popular? I just don't want to buy it and be alone in the milky way

I have it on Xbox one but can't even get out of the space garage so gave up

Yeah, that was the problem I had. Every key on the keyboard does something, press ctrl and every key does something else. It was all a bit overwhelming.

After playing on and mostly off I'm finally getting somewhere, earning some money, managed to complete an assassination mission, it took a long time but i am finally getting some enjoyment out of it.

How does this compare to something like X3 Reunion? Really enjoyed that game (although it took hundreds of hours to make meaningful progress) and Elite Dangerous looks like its successor in a way.

Its pretty amazing how they've managed to take a keyboard worth of controls and squeeze into the ps4 controller. Last night I spent a quick hour bounty hunting around the Dahan 3 extraction rings. Had killed 200k worth and about to frame shift to the outpost and a target popped into the scanner....wanted.... one more kill as I've 78% hull....I died. Hours work wasted and £120k insurance cost as punishment for cockiness.

Not got PSN after sub expired - can I still access and would I be able to play without a sub?
Or is it unrelated? Confused as I always buy media games!

I played it for the first time last night since using with my dk2. Reason being got 3 kids now and it's huge time investment.

My god though, running it in a CV1, VR Ultra at 1.5 HMD with a 1080TI, I was in there until 3am. Possibly best experience in gaming after Lone Echo for decades.

Cannot wait for December when the Rift update allows hardware level virtual monitors pinned anywhere within games, then can have video and chrome running as though part of the ship's ui

You can still play without PlayStation+ account but you have to play in single mode against NPC’s so no real players, with a ps+ account you can play multiplayer so can encounter real players.

Great thanks

I already have this on pc after the kickstarter but would get it on PS4 too if I could use my USB hori flight stick. Anyone know if you can or is it controller only?

I use an Xbox controller on my PS4 with this

Thanks OP, ordered the £25 pack which appears to have everything. Looking forward to an 80s revival weekend playing it :

is this better than No Mans Sky? i used to love this type of game but i feel tainted after my experiences with that game (found it tedious and dull)... is there atleast a point to playing this, No mans sky seemed to be "play for playings' sake"?

I have and love both no mans sky and ED, but they are different style games, no mans sky you can simply pick up and play but ED has a very steep learning curve with all the controls and ED is more a space flight sim. I would suggest checking out some of the you tube videos before you commit - but definitely worth buying the Horizons seasons pass as it expands the game with planetary landings etc and much more to come through 2018.

Play the training missions, watch a few youtube videos and read the odd online beginners guide. The game does not hold you by the hand but its not that difficult to get the hang of the basics. The only hard thing to do when you first start out is docking your ship.

I was tempted to buy this but after reading online this game is only worth it if you can play it with a VR headset like the Vive or oculus rift. They haven't enabled VR for the PS4 yet, the game developers aren't happy with the frame rate, the PS4 isn't powerful enough for it.

Show off i only had a humble Acorn Electron

Just got the game. Going to get a joystick in a coupe of weeks for my birthday. Should I start playing now or wait for the joystick.

Perfect. Thanks for posting
