Shame its not as cheap on Xbox :-(
Fair price for the game, sadly it has no more depth than the original Elite games, which at the time where amazing but by modern standards it's not enough to keep me engaged, too much of a grind. Very pretty game tho. A £5 anyone should get good value out of this.
My lad has put hours and hours in on this game in VR and for this price it’s a must !.
Great game recommend you get the commander pack which includes horizons for the extra content. Beware there is a learning curve to new players make sure you play the tutorials.

Nowhere to buy it on dvd for us with poor broadband?



The game changes and gets updated too frequently - the only DVD ever issued was as a "collectors edition" and requires the latest game version to be downloaded. You even have to download the current downloader too!

You can play it on a 3G dongle - someone recently reported playing it for two weeks on a tethered phone without issue.

dont play if you get motion sickness, played for 15 mins felt like i was going to be sick
ED has been my GOTY every year since release.... (i am an Elite fanboy and have been since the 1st game on the speccy so just putting my bias out there).

Its funny... there is so much wrong with ED (imo) and compared to the KSer/DDF pitch there is loads missing (and not just the future DLC either, i am talking basics like npc wingmates or crew and basic persistence in the game rather than stuff being magically created and destroyed in your instance which is what we have.)

but even so, imo what it does well, it does so so well that it does not really matter imo.

for a 5er it is a no brainer..... but that said, you really need horizons too (so may as well get the CMDR deluxe edition)

and if you have a VR hmd, then what were you thinking not getting ED at the same time? it is STILL the shining example of VR done well.

(small print... ED is not an MMO in the generic sense of the world, so if you are expecting massive space battles with other players all the time then look elsewhere - or at least check out youtube videos.. ED is more a space opera than COD in space)
Game is far too big, literally flying for hours doing nothing at all, kinda boring, too big.

You're right. I must have played it on the C64 before getting an Amiga because I just looked up footage of the Amiga version and I don't remember it being so colourful. I forgot this was back in the day when every platform got a different version. I first played The Secret of Monkey Island on the Amiga and was a bit confused when I later played it on PC and it didn't look or sound the way I remembered it.

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.
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...

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.

Edited by: "neosalad" 22nd Dec 2017
Top tip is to run data trade missions to begin with (no cargo space required). Also choose a station as your main base, always return to it, run missions in and out of it. This will increase your reputation with the local factions ... which will in turn give you better paying missions. I wouldn’t touch combat until you can buy a kit out a Vulture ... and remember the 10% rebut cost if your ship gets blown up ... so have a Vulture and some cash in the bank first, then go after some wanted craft, smaller craft. But return to trade or mining for more cash per hour ... when you can, get an Asp Explorer, stick a first class cabin in it and do some sight seeing passenger runs - that’s where the real money is
I currently run passenger missions in one of the top ships, an Anaconda, but it will be a while before you can afford and kit that out.
All that said, play it how you want, that’s the beauty of this game. I play other games, but always return to Elite.

Yes the controls take a while to get used to but it's a simulation, or an arcade game.

Invested way too many hours on the pc version.

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

its a space game set within a galaxy sim if that makes sense.

it is a steep learning curve, partly due to rubbish in game help. however there is a "fan" made manual online as well as get a lot of help off the forums. I do not claim to understand everything in the game (even after >1500 hrs) the intricacies of the background sim still elude me ... but it does not take long to get a basic feel for the game, and you can learn enough to do the basics within a few hrs.

once you get used to it, most of the game is fairly easy... to be honest i think the game is lacking in complexity in many areas. i would much rather more complex stuff in the game BUT with better in game explanations on how things work and WHY they work.

for speccing ships it can be kind of clunky. If you are happy to get online "help i suggest bookmarking and having to hand on a tablet... of course some if you use ALL their features may be considered cheating, that is up to you.

Great game but I am a long time fan as I played it on Amiga years ago and still remember all the ships.Quick question for anybody who has horizons. Is it worth me paying the extra?. I also have No Man's Sky so is it worth buying just to land on a few planets.


I bought it in the sale too. I have since bought the physical version with the dlc but I've only landed on one planet so far. It really depends how much you like the game I guess. I'm sure a lot more opens up with the dlc I just haven't stumbled across it yet.

NMS has atospheric planets and a lot more life
it has base building

ED has a FAR better "flight" model
and is set in a fairly scientific sound recreation of our milkyway. (hover above your home town above earth and look up and you will recognise the star constelations, and these are accurate and change correctly as you jump from system to system.

for "geek value" alone ED is worth it imo.

its far from perfect, i could list everything i dislike about the game (and if you read the design decision archives (forums.frontier.co.uk/for…=36 ) and see what is missing its enough to make a grown man cry


but even so, its a fantastic game and is getting better with every update.

I would say both games scratch a different itch.. for me, its ED all the way because i play in VR (PC).... for you, you may have a different conclusion.... imo this is one of those examples where no one can tell you, you need to do a bit of homework.

obsidian ant does a lot of short videos on youtube on both games, and maybe can help.

I cannot decide between this or No Man's Sky. Any recommendations?Thank you


I haven't played no man's sky. But this game is so good. I have however looked up a lot comparing the two and this wins by miles every time.

My experience. Elite Dangerous £12 base game Steam sale 2 years ago. Loved it. DIY IR tracker and IR clip £30. Amazing. Voice Attack software and new usb mic headphone set £30. I am the commander. 3d TV £200. Im almost there. Second hand DK2 £250. Now I am there. It's the most expensive game I've ever played, but I have to say nothing else has ever drawn me in and made me spend my money. And I haven't bought the season pass yet but I've spent many hundreds of hours in space already!

Everything takes so much time in game, jumping in for anything less than a few hours at a time is not worthwhile.It does look great in VR apparently, but given many people do other stuff whilst travelling from place to place (Netflix etc..) I don't know what you'd do in VR. Once you've seem one super cruise 'cut scene' you've seen them all .....


I was thinking that but seeing as the base game is £13 that seems cheap enough if it will give me most of the VR wows. Apparently you can inject a virtual screen into your cockpit which might be a fun way to watch netflix at least haha

All half cocked and DOA.The game is a grindfest, the whole engineers update was a joke as is grinding for that whole customisation.It's a hollow game with very little story driven gameplay or interesting set of missions.Cargo and space tourism is EXACTLY the same thing and both are full as dishwater. Exploring? Good luck with that.There's like 2 trades you can do that will make enough to justify the time spent, utter imbalance.5/10.

The atmosphere that it builds in game in excellent especially the sound. Lot of young players wont get it to be honest because of all the FPS games and the trailers to over "actionise" the gameplay buy you can do a lot of different things and swap between them and leave the game for months, come back and it still feels fresh and nice to be back in the seat again. Does take a lot of time to play but play it well and you get a lot of enjoyment out of it.
