    Well no point in waiting for that other game, you can do it all in this game. Minus cave poop.

    I would expect this to follow the lines of the three modes that E:D already has so far - Solo, Group (you can make a PVE group, like Mobius, with many thousands of players) or Open (PvP-enabled), with all three modes affecting the same Background Simulation (the single persistent state of the galaxy).

    After this, all that will be lacking will be a more meaningful player involvement/economy (like Eve's). This game rocks as is, and is only getting better.

    Amazing. I'm surprised noone posted this news before now.

    Differences between Elite Dangerous and Star Citizen:

    One is a game, one is a scam.

    I play both ED and SC. It's funny how people are comparing ED to SC with this teaser. Both companies have their issues. FDev's issue is under-delivering every patch. Their net code allows for 4 people in an instance currently...

    lol imagine using this game pre-rendered trailer:
    That shows features Star Citizen has available for years (FPS) while it's community easily does better looking trailers with ingame footage every week:

    SC is a completly broken bug infested, feature lacking, exploited shitfest that may never see the light of day , where as ED is actually a playable fun game ...

    Not sure how this will really play/look like in the end.

    Last time i was on the planets looking for minerals, it was rough looking. I do not think they could just have full world/planets where you could run around having fights or what not.

    Maybe they will have the bases be part of it? Interesting ideas i guess...just have to see how they can implement it.

    People watch SC streams to laugh at how bad the game is. ED is boring to watch, it just works. SC is hilarious: Spacejoe tries to get out of the cockpit of his fighter, goes floating off into space randomly, someone else comes along and spacejacks his ride, while half the textures of the space station just randomly start crawling across the station. It's like watching Kerbal Space Program, but SC pilots take themselves way too seriously.

    I guess if you sink thousands of dollars into Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing in Space you end up taking yourself seriously.

    The only thing those statistics (along with the amount of cash CIG has raised) prove is that P.T. Barnum was correct regarding his theory on the birthrate of suckers.

    I own Elite, but all I remember is I spent over half an hour trying to dock and failing over and over again. I really wanted to like it but I just am not good enough.
    Sig so that badges don't eat my posts.


  • alakramalakram Member UncommonPosts: 2,297
    First of all, awesome news. I hope they make a good expansion out of it becouse this could really offer a lot to a wide audience.
    I really don't understand that need of some people to fight over wich game is better. I own Elite, and I plan on buying this expansi´on as soon as it comes out. I own that other game, I tried it, I liked what they have, even if what they have is not a finished game and I don't feel like I need to be a fan of one or another I just play what I like.

    Don't be a blind fan, be a gamer.

    If you want to enjoy and play Elite, in my opinion, you need a flight joystick. Go to their forums and look for recomendations. When I first bought Elite I liked the game but it was not enjoyable until I bought one. It can't be played with mouse and keyboard, at least use a controller if not a joystick.

    I played just fine using keyboard and mouse. Saying it can't be played using those is a lie.

    E:D has an entire universe of planets to go explore. How many does SC have so far? 6?  :D

    There's auto-docking now. And keyboard and mouse is just fine, don't fall for the "ya gotta have expensive toys to play" bullshit. And if you really don't like k/m, any regular old controller works great too.

    I think SC will be out in five years time just when ED graphics will be looking a little dated. :)

    Then Elite wins hands down because Star Citizen is buggy and has a lot of stuff missing.

    Wins what exactly? If Star Citizen has stuff missing what about Elite?
    You do realise that Star Citizen already has all the features talked about in the [Elite's Future Video] from 2014?


    Their recent trailer showing walking on planets and engaging in FPS and estimated for 2021 has been available in Star Citizen for years already now...

    Mind you, I have nothing against Elite or Frontier but anyone who tries to use it to bash Star Citizen or any other game will be opening a can of worms. :D
