What is Elite: Dangerous?

Elite: Dangerous is an action and adventure space game that gives players the opportunity to explore the entire galaxy from the control of a spaceship. Once players find themselves in the game’s vast world with a cheap ship and few resources, players must work their way through the ranks, earning their place in the harsh abyss of space.

During your in-game journey, you can look forward to a wide range of activities, from cargo hauling and trade deals to intense interplanetary dogfights. However, be sure to keep an eye on your back for scammers to roam the persistent game world. With truly open-ended gameplay, Elite: Dangerous is one of the most addictive simulation games available today.
