Game Overview

Elite: Dangerous is a space trading and combat simulation video game developed by Frontier Developments through Kickstarter for Mac OS and Microsoft Windows. Set around 50 years after the events of Frontier: First Encounters, the settled regions of the galaxy, run by the Federation and Independents, constantly skirmish to outmaneouver one another on their frontiers. Meanwhile, in the regions outside their influence, a vast majority of the galaxy, anarchy reigns supreme.

Although very little is known of the story, it has been implied that the Thargoids will, in some way, threaten humanity, despite apparently making peace at the end of the previous game.
