Do whatever it takes to upgrade your ship’s hull, engines, weapons, defences, cargo hold; constantly improve your capabilities and influence on your journey towards the most coveted rank in the history of gaming
Elite: Dangerous starts you off in a small Sidewinder-class multirole ship with 100 credits to your name. There’s not so much a “learning curve” as there is a “learning vertical wall”—there’s a manual you can download and tutorial missions you can access from the game’s main menu, but unlike many games there isn’t anything resembling a tutorial built into the actual mainline game. Once you start a new game, you’re thrown into the deep end—just like the 1984 game after which this one is modeled.
