New game just came out today. Elite: Dangerous which is the 4th game of the Elite series which started in 1984. The game takes place in the Milky Way in the year 3300 with real time and dates. It is a 1:1 replica (YES 1:1 replica) of the galaxy with 400 billion star systems and 150,000 of the star systems are taken from real-world astronomical data. It is a really cool game and has a great community. Soon a player will be able to land on planets and study the planet for extra money. You can now find new systems and sell the maps to multiple governments or companies.
The game also has a real time economic system where buying good in one system can allow you to sell goods in another system for a profit. Also there are a lot of new upgrades that can be put onto the many ships that are in the game. The game is still early in development and many things are to come with the game like new ships and better overall performances.
I hope that you can enjoy the game as I am right now. Space is pretty cool too!
Check it out!
