Elite Dangerous game has been out for PC for and then on Xbox One for some years now but fans are totally hyped because this vast and truly, complex space fighter game is coming out for PS4 this year. This version of the game has been enhanced with much better political strategies, space combat, and empire business that are distinguished with some light years. You can play the game in single player mode for starters or you can play it online in open play mode. The first mode is pretty simple but while you are playing online, you have to compete with other online players called commanders without interacting them—because the game doesn’t allow much interaction—or with least of it. You can make groups for completing missions, trades, and exploring the universe but piracy and bounty are the only ways to interact here.
Elite Dangerous Storyline:
The level of freedom that this game has to offer is usually for open world games but you can completely feel the excitement running down your spine. You can be a trader by working on trade routes between different stations and earn millions of credits on each trip. If you like to be a pirate, you can attack the ships of different pilots, steal their cargo, and then make money by selling the belongings to some dealer but there is a risk of bounty hunters in that. You can also switch between modes if you get bored by constant traveling or just keep changing the style of your gameplay depending on your mode because you are free to do anything you want in the game.
The main campaign of the game isn’t long but there are plenty of small storylines and political milestones for you to shape any way you want. Later on, the gameplay of the game becomes really satisfying because there is no wasting of anything between the trade campaigns—you get the trade data any money on every route you take. There is a lot of action in the game but the beauty of the game itself leaves you in awe of the places you travel. The ships in the game vary in the performance but you have to learn how to fly those space even in the worst of the situations because that is the key to survival in the long run.
Combat and Everything Else:
The combat in the Elite Dangerous isn’t just to point and shoot but the winning or getting lost in the space depends on the decisions you make during the combat. You also have to look for the upgrades during a fight because against bigger ships, fast shield recharging and better throttle engagement can end the fight very easily. Then there is an arena mode to keep you entertained after you are tired of making travels from system to system and planet to planet. This PS4 mode allows you to take part in deathmatches by making teams or in free for all mode.
There is also capture the flag mode where the action is constant. What makes it more interesting is that you have to work your way by winning combats in the arena from the start as you are not allowed to bring your own ships here. There is plenty of action for you to keep coming back here.
