    Its called Star Citizen now.
    He wants a version that will get released.
    Elite Dangerous? Even I dunno if I'm serious or not now, I'm currently fitting a ship for exploration because other players are asshats.
    I play quite a bit of No Man’s Sky but it’s lacking on the space combat.

    ED is the reverse Star Citizen and not in a good way.

    It's released and working, but has absolutely fuck all to it except exploring for its own sake to look at pretty things.

    Frankly calling the development pace on that glacial is overestimating it slightly.

    Yeah, it's more than a bit aggravating that I bought the lifetime season pass when this was about to release & they only did one DLC.

    Is ED expected to develop? I thought it was finalised. I hope it does more, the potential is there.

    A glance at the site shows they're still doing regular updates

    In theory. The impression I got back when they were both kickstarters was that while SC was gonna wait a while & spring forth fully developed, ED was gonna release a basic game & upgrade via DLCs & patches.
    The ED guys say there's a large DLC later this year but as they've delayed before I'm not getting my hopes up.

    I am gonna get pretty interested in it when they introduce player-driver economy and split online from solo. So probably never.

    Yeah there's regular new stuff and fleet carriers are due Soon(TM), presumably once they work out what the different ones actually do...

    The next paid expansion is currently aimed at the end of this year but I'm fairly confident it'll end up being next year and with less stuff; it sounds ridiculously ambitious right now.

    (Fandom wiki, so an adblock highly recommended - but it was the first place I found that had things laid out in one place.)


    You either play ED as a single player game, dipping in and out as flying spaceships appeals, or you get involved with some powerplay/background sim group.
    Either works but it's never going to fill the same niche that EVE of a decade ago did and isn't trying to.

    Plenty of groups in ED that aren't really (or primarily) involved in the BSG.

    "regular updates"

    Regular is not frequent, they do release new stuff each year.

    ED is reasonably cheap to pick up, there isnt much to it, beyond looking around and some reasonable combat, and then some dull grinding for materials- but as a cost per fun hours I think ED comes out positive.

    It's certainly a must-have for VR owners.

    They absolutely have, you're just not paying attention.
    I wont say MS Games has always been good guys, in particular when Games For Windows Live (iirc) came out it was a bloated piece of malware.

    BUT on Windows PC gaming, they always seemed to leave creative freedom to the studios, and were generally hands off the actual content. Publishing games on PC under the Microsoft brand was a PR exercise, not their core business, and you could tell in a good way.
