Elite: Dangerous Video Game
- genre: Simulation
- developer: Frontier Developments/Chris Sawyer
- publisher: Frontier Developments
- platform: PC
In Elite: Dangerous the player assumes control of a remote interstellar ship and travels to the far reaches of the universe, performing various tasks, and getting rich thanks to the trade.
The action takes place in the distant future, in a time when humanity had colonized countless planetary systems. In the universe created by the developers, the dominant role is played by the three superpowers - the Empire, the Federation, and the Independent.
The essence of the game is simple - at the start we get a small ship and a hundred credits, then we are thrown into the Milky Way with 100 billion stars, and it depends only on us what we will do next. We decide whether to become a stellar merchant, a pirate, a bounty hunter, an assassin, an explorer, a miner, or we can also freely combine these activities. The game features a dynamic combat system which takes into account the principles of physics of the space.
In Elite: Dangerous, solo and multiplayer modes are not separate. Instead, the participants themselves decide whether they want to play alone, or initiate a game for a group of friends, or those who are willing to join in.
