After first launching on Kickstarter last year, Elite Dangerous has today been launched on Valve’s Steam network, available for £39.99 on the PC, and is currently in beta testing for a Mac version, which is expected to launch soon.
Here’s a description of the game:
Take control of your own starship in a cutthroat galaxy. Elite: Dangerous brings gaming’s original open world adventure into the modern generation with a connected galaxy, evolving narrative and the entirety of the Milky Way re-created at its full galactic proportions.
A Galaxy Of Wonders : The 400 billion star systems of the Milky Way are the stage for Elite: Dangerous’ open-ended gameplay. The real stars, planets, moons, asteroid fields and black holes of our own galaxy are built to their true epic proportions in the largest designed playspace in videogame history.
A Unique Connected Game Experience : Governments fall, battles are lost and won, and humanity’s frontier is reshaped, all by players’ actions. In an age of galactic superpowers and interstellar war, every player’s personal story influences the connected galaxy and handcrafted evolving narrative.
Blaze Your Own Trail : Upgrade your ship and customize every component as you hunt, explore, fight, mine, smuggle, trade and survive in the cutthroat galaxy of the year 3301. Do whatever it takes to earn the skill, knowledge, wealth and power to stand among the ranks of the Elite.
