Elite IV will be here March 2014


I just wanted to make anyone aware that may not be that Elite is making a definite come back.... as long as it can raise the money to do so.

The game will be written by Frontier Developments, the studio owned by David Braben, co-creator of the original Elite.

Please help out - it's on Kickstarter and requires funding by January 4th 2013. Please spread the word, some of us have waited 20 years for a new Elite....!

Technically, Star Citizen is like it.

Elite was the grand daddy of space sims - it came out in 1984, it was the first true 3D game on a home computer, and the first open world game, along with a few other firsts. It fit into 22k of memory.

Frontier (Elite II) in the 1990s was the first and still the only space sim (that I know of at least) that allowed seamless landing on planet surfaces, aside from the third in the series; First Encounters. It also had hundreds of thousands of realistically modeled solar systems, bigger even than EVE Online is today - and it fit on 2 floppy disks.

All of these games have innovated in some way and the early signs are that this one will as well.
