Kickstarter-funded Elite: Dangerous is the latest installment of a long series of epic space games starting with Elite, one of the most successful games of the 1980s.

Take a ship and 100 credits to make money legally or illegally. Carve your own path through the richest, largest gaming sandbox ever created set against a backdrop of anarchy, power-plays and intrigue.

What you do is up to you. Trade for profit between systems. Participate in co-op missions, free-for-all group battles and team raids. Or simply explore the wonders of the galaxy.

Oculus Rift, designed for immersive gaming, is a perfect way to intensify the Elite: Dangerous experience.

According to David Braben, CEO of Frontier: “We’ve been playing with the Oculus Rift dev kits and are excited about the potential – just glancing around your cockpit or being totally immersed in a space battle. Many of our backers have made it clear that they would like Oculus Rift support – and so do we! We’re very pleased with the results so far.”

Elite: Dangerous will be released in 2014.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
