Elite Dangerous £8.99, Planet Coaster £13.49 (55% off) + more Frontier games upto 75% off @ Humble Store

Ends at 6pm on Monday 23rd July. Extra 10% off if you're a Humble Monthly Subscriber.

I'm super bored so I might buy Horizons, got fed up with Elite after about 60 hours play but it will be interesting to see what's changed in the last few years.


I've got JW and have definitely got more than my money's worth out of the game so far. Frontier have confirmed they will continue to support and enhance the game as they have done with PC and ED. Doubt it'll be reduced much if at all this year.


Surprised JW hasn’t dropped in price since it got released at a higher price than PC but yet has very little content from the reviews


I keep hoping Planet Coaster will be in the Humble Monthly... stopping myself from buying it. :p

My 4 year old bought this inadvertently through my xbox live account for 54 quid. I had to beg them to cancel it. Good story.


Can anyone vouch for the condition of games from boomerang? Always been a bit wary of ex-rentals as you have no idea how many people have touched the game or what condition it will be in.


Keep them coming mixi. Voted hot as usual.


No mate, but thanks for the heads up :D


Thats pretty much what I'm prepared to pay for Recore, thanks OP.

Deal ended now :(


They gave out keys, heck you can probably still claim it in your account somewhere.


Worth getting the extras over base game?


I paid £50 for the base game towards the end of beta so wasn't eligible for any new content. Can't bring myself to give them any more of my money.


Found too hard to get going even using tutorials.

Elite Dangerous: Commander Deluxe Edition (Steam) - £21.19 @ HumbleBundle

Current deal on Elite Dangerous Commander Edition, was £39.99 now £21.19 (-47%) Also standard edition is £8.99 was £19.99 (55%) Horizons season pass is £11.99 was £19.99 (40%)

Damn, has this just gone up ? Looked at work and it was £21... now it's back to nearly full price


Still £39.99 on the Oculus store so better to buy it here and then get the Oculus key from frontier.

However... Please note: The keys you generate will add your games to any Steam library but WILL NOT GRANT ACCESS TO ELITE: DANGEROUS/HORIZONS. For this reason, please do not give your Steam key away to a friend! They won’t be able to play without having already bought the game from Steam or from the Frontier Store.


So because you don't like it, nobody else will. Okay, got it. And this will come with a Steam key when buying through the Frontier store, follow this https://support.frontier.co.uk/kb/faq.php?id=200


Or you could buy it via Steam (same price currently) and gift it?


Seeing that you need Steam AND a Frontier account to play, there is a chance that the purchase will get linked to your Frontier account. I'm only guessing, but I imagine they then also give you a Steam code for it to appear in Steam.


Will you get a key from them ? Or its some kind of link that is tied with your account ? I want to buy and send this to my family in usa, so would buy it if its a code what you get. Thanks for answer.

Back to the price match on Prime - ordered mine when they still had stock this morning, arriving tomorrow CJ


Right, 3 days of watching youtube and reading articles, I feel ready for the damn thing to arrive at some point now!


Cool, I wasn't aware of this game (but am old enough to have been an addict of the original)! Looks great, just the sort of thing I can get stuck in to. Ordered (couldn't find it this cheap on Amazon despite having Prime BTW). HEAT!


DLC is a code. It's not included in the disc.


Great game, but dont buy if you havent got 40 hours to spare learning the ropes.

I don't think they work on Xbox One :)


this was £5.99 /£16.99 deluxe on steam last week


Or more accurately, later today would be a good time to start - since the servers are down for the upgrade. What's the point of working from home if Elite Dangerous won't run? (I'm on PC - guess it's possible the XBox servers aren't down).


The major update is being deployed today, so now would be a good time to start.

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. Its the only only game I really play now. See you in the black o

Good price for this game. Looks particularly good in VR, although VR hardware isn't required to play it.

Thanks the last time i did all the tutorails that was over a year ago will give it another go


The tutorials supplied in game should be played. The launcher also links you to a raft of instructional videos and the manual. Those should get you on your way. You can also have a read of some of my beginners guides: Tips for Beginners


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.


Well if your BB is that poor then you really would not want to play this game as it requires a constant online connection.


Indeed can anyone recommend some youtube guide for this i found the game really hard to play just for the basic controls

Showing £19.99 now for me.


dont play if you get motion sickness, played for 15 mins felt like i was going to be sick :D


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.

My wife wants to know why she hasn't seen me since this was posted, and why our bank account is £400 lighter (the box marked 'Oculus Rift' might give a clue).


Another game for the collection, thanks jcrider.


Having your throttle in the blue zone gives you the best turning rate, you're not gonna turn well at max throttle.


Only £4.49 if you've bought the monthly Civ VI bundle (including Owlboy).


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.

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 ..


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.


Cheers for the explanation (y)


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.

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.


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...


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


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.


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.

Finally ordered horizons. Went to play, shows as dlc on steam, but says I needed to link or redeem my code. Did that but still get the copy and redeem dialogue. Restarted steam and still no difference... Tired and off to bed now.

any idea how long this sale is on for? My son just bought the main game with existing credit.

Please can someone confirm if you need the commander deluxe edition or if basic game is enough? Thanks.


I'd say that if you know it'll run better on the Xbox, plus you have friends who'll also be playing it, then get it for the Xbox. A HOTAS isn't necessary, it plays fine with a controller.


Cheers now i have the dilema.. of.. do i get this for the xbox one (playing on an X) or for my PC in the steam sale?! (only a R9 280 3gb, intel i5 4670K @ 3.4ghz, 8GB RAM. as i believe the pc version has better mods, but i tend to play with friends more on my xbox co op etc.. but i think it might run better on my Xbox than my PC


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 :D 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.


Yep, the Horizons update is included with the Commander Deluxe edition. Base game is pretty much crippled, you need the Horizons update so you can land on planets, have the 'Story' missions etc. The only other 'upgrade' that comes with the Commander Deluxe edition is basically some paint jobs for ships.

Thanks. The full list is sinking the deal potential for sure.


Agree with the comments, most if not all of these games have been under £15 at some point


heat based just on fallout and elite, nice to see the full list even if their is pretty much nothing on it, thanks


Is it though? I do love it when people post these ridiculous things with no proof. You cannot get a new physical copy for £12.99 at the moment and time machines do not exist. They are all around the £20 mark. Sure you can buy a digital copy for a US account at that price point, but not everyone wants to faff around with that. Not to mention the deal you are commenting on its for physical copies... (annoyed)


Feel free to post that. Would get really hot to get it physical for £12.99.

The learning curve is not that bad, you just take it in chunks. Do the first few training missions then start by doing a few simple cargo or courier jobs. Its not for the casual gamer but it's not real rocket science either.

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


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


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.


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?


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.
