December 16, 2014. After a long test that has lasted more than a year and has gone through alpha, beta and gamma phases, today is the day that the Elite Dangerous universe gets underway. Good luck, commanders!
The galaxy of Elite Dangerous awaits thousands of players from all over the world. From this moment, the persistent universe begins to work and the three great factions, Empire, Alliance and Federation, will fight to win the favor of the players, who will be able to choose whom they favor and with whom they feud… or they can even play two-way.
To celebrate the launch, Frontier has organized a contest in which the first player to reach the Elite rank in Combat, Exploration or Trade will win €1200, and the first to obtain the Elite rank in all three, will win €12000. To do this, you will have to start from scratch, on a Sidewinder ship and with 1000 credits. Those who have participated in the gamma have the option to delete their game from the game options if they want to qualify for the contest. The interesting thing is that, if you are the first to reach the Elite rank in any of the three “races” and you want to collect it, you will not be eligible to win the Elite rank competition in all three. In addition, you have to play in open mode, and Frontier will monitor the steps taken by the winner to ensure that he has not cheated.
