Elite Dangerous: Arena launched today

Elite Dangerous: Arena thrusts players into first-person dogfights against the galaxy’s greatest pilots in stunning 3D space arenas. With easy to pick-up controls that reveal incredible depth, Elite Dangerous: Arena is a new way to engage in fast-paced PVP action against players from around the world.

Elite Dangerous: Arena brings Elite Dangerous’ Close Quarter Combat (CQC) PVP game to players as a standalone release, featuring full cross-compatibility with the large and growing Elite Dangerous player community.

CQC is the ultimate 34th century gladiatorial contest between starship pilots, featuring:

  • ​Four agile, combat-honed space ships. Choose from the fast and aggressive Federal and Imperial Fighters, the damage-dealing Eagle or the heavyweight Sidewinder.
  • Multiple tactical options with custom loadouts unlocked by ranking up.
  • Four Arenas: Elevate’s towering view over a planet surface, Cluster Compound’s mining facility, Asteria Point’s cavernous space station and Ice Field’s frozen asteroid belt.
  • Eight-player Free for All, Team Deathmatch and Capture the Flag game modes.
  • Realistic, agile starship handling powered by Elite Dangerous’ advanced simulation technology.

Elite Dangerous: Arena is a different kind of multi-player shooter, offering competitive gamers the chance to jump into thrilling space combat and challenge the world.

Frontier CEO David Braben said.

We showcase CQC to players at events around the world, and it’s a hit wherever it’s played.

All Elite Dangerous: Arena and Elite Dangerous CQC players are eligible to enter the $100,000 Close Quarter Combat Championships tournament. Selection will take place over a series of heats in the spring and summer, and heat winners will receive an invite to the grand final to be held at a secret location and livestreamed online later this year.

Elite Dangerous: Arena is available today for £4.99 ($7.49, €6.75, 375 RUB) at Frontierstore.net and Steam.
