You know what you find interesting in Elite: Dangerous. It’s not exploring, it’s not mining, it’s not missions, it’s just getting into close quarters with other spacecraft and dogfighting until one of you expires. So now you can play exactly that and nothing else with the new standalone Elite Dangerous: Arena, a spinoff of the game that’s all about the CQC dogfights without any extraneous elements whatsoever. It’s $7.50 by its lonesome.
Already own Elite: Dangerous? No need to buy this again, because you already have access to it for free. Want to upgrade to the full game at a later time? You’ll get a discount based on the price of Arena when you do so. It’s pretty much a uniform win for people who like dogfighting in space, and it coincides nicely with the game’s newest CQC Mayhem event for everyone.
