REVIEWS Dokuro (PC) Review
Dokuro makes the jump from handheld to PC, but does it help or hinder this unusual platformer?

About Love, Hate, and the other Review
Simple feelings. Complex puzzles.

Elite: Dangerous Screenshots



Play your way
Whether you want to trade for profit between systems, take part in multiplayer mission alliances, free-for-all group battles and team raids to bring down planetary economies. Tip the balance of power in the galaxy, or simply explore the wonders of the universe and face the unknown… it is up to you.
Your second-to-second actions could have you taking the roles of trader, pirate, bounty hunter, leader, team player, opportunistic assassin, grand schemer, and more. You are at the centre of the action any time, any place and any way you choose – each action has a consequence, and influences the galaxy around you.
Starting with a few credits and a basic starship, carve your own path through the richest, largest gaming sandbox ever created, set against a backdrop of raw anarchy, galactic powerplays and intrigue. Do whatever it takes to upgrade your ship’s hull, engines, weapons, defences, cargo hold; even the ship itself, constantly improve your capabilities and influence on your journey towards the most coveted rank in the history of gaming - 'Elite'.
Fight, trade, hunt your way across a giant galaxy of 100 billion star systems. You can make money from trading goods between the many star systems, by destroying pirate ships and collecting bounty, or even by attacking traders and collecting their cargo (which in turn will get a bounty on your head!). There are missions too, and exploration. Play one way or in a combination of ways. Upgrade your ship and specialise in one activity - have a trader with a huge cargo bay, or use the space for weapons and manoeuvrability.

Real Freedom
Go where you like, be what you like - pirate, bounty hunter, trader, assassin, or a mix of all of these.
Trade: Buy low, cross dangerous space lanes, evade or destroy pirates en route, then sell high, if you make the journey!
Fight: Take on the pirates or be one yourself.
Progress: Get your pilot rating all the way from "Harmless" to "Elite".
Explore: Head out to the far reaches of space and discover amazing sights.
Multiplayer: And the best part - you can do all this online with your friends, or other "Elite" pilots like yourself, or even alone. The choice is yours…

This is just the beginning
The first release of Elite: Dangerous will not mark the end of development.
We intend to continue expanding the game both with new content and new features. A good example of this is planetary landings. We have an ambitious goal for landings to include new gameplay and a rich variety of worlds to explore. To achieve our goal we want the planets to come to life. We also want to add the ability to leave the ships so you can explore space stations or board enemy vessels or even just to look around your own.
We intend to release small, free updates after launch, but major expansions including rich new features will be charged for, unless you have bought the expansion pass, or are one of the Kickstarter backers at the appropriate tier.
