Elite Dangerous is the definitive massively multiplayer space epic, bringing gaming’s original open world adventure to the modern generation with a connected galaxy, evolving narrative and the entirety of the Milky Way re-created at its full galactic proportions.

Starting with only a small starship and a few credits, players do whatever it takes to earn the skill, knowledge, wealth and power to survive in a futuristic cutthroat galaxy and to stand among the ranks of the iconic Elite. In an age of galactic superpowers and interstellar war, every player’s story influences the unique connected gaming experience and handcrafted evolving narrative. Governments fall, battles are lost and won, and humanity’s frontier is reshaped, all by players’ actions.

400 Billion Star Systems. Infinite Freedom. Blaze Your Own Trail.

Indeed i bought this for the xbox and could not figure out controls thinking about getting it for pc and a decent flight stick good deal none the less

Get the full version which includes horizons for £25.99. Planetary landings add a lot to the game. Yes the controls take a while to get used to but it's a simulation, or an arcade game. Put the time in, watch some videos (or even better, get someone to talk you through it), and you'll find it a rewarding experience.

I tried the tutorials and still got lost its needs better ones the learning curve is this game is straight up lol

I assume there is zero chance of getting PSVR support for this?

It seems like a game that's perfectly suited to VR; lots of floating about, not doing very much...in my experience, VR makes walking about and sitting in menu screens interesting again!

I think I've put around 25 hours into the PC version, I used a xbox controller and managed just fine, but I was still left confused as to some of the mechanics of the game.

Elite dangerous is designed as a real space sim, great game if you have the time and the patience to fully enjoy the whole experience.

It was in testing but the quality isn't up to either Frontier or Sony's desired levels I believe, never say never but its a big ask I feel

It is at first but once you get your head round it they are fine. Tutorials are rubbish so a lot is just trial and error.

Failing that you could just buy the PS4 HOTUS

The controls are completely customisable, which includes being able to change them to a 'docking controls' version when deploying the landing gear. So much easier to line up the landing pad when you effectively change the joystick to hovering, give it a Google.

Been waiting for this to get to the £20ish.
Invested way too many hours on the pc version.

Any advice on where the cheapest Horizons version for the Ps4 can be obtained?

Is this the cheapest its been? I'm tempted by this one, but have plenty of other games to play, and not as much time as I would like. I'm a bit worried I won't have time to get into this game properly, if its as techy as people claim.

Presumably the controls are easier to master if you have one of the Hotas Thrustmaster controllers or similar?

It's cheap because it doesn't have the same content as the disc version.
