Simulation 27 June 2017

A special edition of Elite: Dangerous - a game which casts the player in the role of a pilot aboard a spaceship, who traverses distant regions of the galaxy, completing various assignments, fighting enemies or getting rich through trading. The game came out in the form of a Blu-ray disc. Apart from the base version of the game - created by Frontier Developments, a team led by the legendary Chris Sawyer, who had produced all the previous installments - this Legendary Edition includes all the gameplay improvements introduced since the original release, and the Horizons expansion pack. The latter introduced an opportunity to land on the planets without atmosphere, in order to explore the surfaces using an on-board rover. Moreover, Horizons enriches the game with a character creation system and gives an opportunity to invite others to explore space together, aboard one starship.

Simulation 16 February 2016

A space combat sim focused on online PvP, which is actually a standalone version of the multiplayer mode taken from Elite: Dangerous, a game by Frontier Developments. This title allows up to 8 people to play together in such game modes as Free-for-All, Team Deathmatch, or Capture the Flag. The players have four types of ships at their disposal: Federal and Imperial Fighters, which offer high speed and maneuverability at the expense of weak armor and weapons, the powerful but fragile Eagle, and the slow and heavy but also tough Sidewinder. You can play on four diverse maps, including ice-bound asteroid belt, space station with a maze of corridors, mining facility, and arena with a space elevator in the center. In terms of gameplay and visuals Elite: Dangerous Arena does not stray far from the 2014's original.

The fourth installment in the Elite series. The game is a space simulator created again by David Braben and the Frontier studio. Elite: Dangerous is set in the far future; after humanity had colonized countless star systems, the Universe is dominated by three superpowers: the Empire, the Federation, and the Alliance. Brave pilots seek easy money working beyond the territories controlled by these entities. The open-world game structure offers the players large amounts of freedom when it comes to exploration, trading or completing military assignments. Instead of the classic division into the solo and multiplayer modes, the creators of Elite: Dangerous allow the player to join their friends or return to single-player experience at any time.
