Elite: Dangerous offers its Arena as a standalone product

It's been quiet.

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.

btw, how’s the moddable single player game coming along they promised to Kickstarter backers? 

Where is it? Guess they won’t hand out code that would actually give you the opportunity to mod in those cash store exclusive skins, right?

Played it and it is fun even though i havent played elite since Beta and DK2 – Def all in favor of more cockpit VR games and combat oriented ones are all good! Like he seperate rank and unlocks progression system – they needed some way to make it so veteran Elite players didnt come through and drop the OP ship pain hammer on noobs.
+1 ^ from me for Elite Arena

@TheCheifTurtle Could it be that LordOfBread  was finally dumped. In any case: that company is incredibly shameless and this is just one of countless shady incidents. They have pulled off so much shit I’ve lost count. I’m fed up since they took money for a single player game on Kickstarter and shamelessly turned it into a lackluster forced online game with a cash shop. Only shareholders or employees can defend that kind of crap.What game are you talking about?

Lethality GoJammit I keep hearing about this H1Z1 comparison. Convince me.

GoJammit It could very well hurt the game for core players. i.e. see the focus of H1Z1. There’s a fine line between seizing an opportunity and losing the focus of the bigger vision.

That’s great for you, Tron, but they have mouths to feed and they can’t just hope they’ll run into convenient glowing rivers of sustenance. They could very well be doing this thinking it is the right thing to do. And at the end of the day they need money and this does not hurt the game at all, so why not.

GoJammit Because that’s not always int he best interest of the customer. And I choose to fight for the users.

There’s a lot of space between here and there. How about grab all the money you can while doing what could be best for the game and company?
