..and I look forward to it. I never played much of the original. It was too early in my cognitive development, bedecked in details and structure and mechanics that I wouldn’t be able to grasp for nearly 10 years. By then it was too late. But I remembered the level of detail like scraps of legend about Manticores dwelling along a mountain road.
Procedural map, changing trade lanes and a detailed first person control schema. It was hard.
I haven’t read into it heavily now that they’re rebuilding it using new computers and bringing us a quality successor to the classic game. But i have my hopes.
Elite: Dangerous is to be a first person game with multiplayer where you can fly the galaxy, see strange new stars and get shot at by pirates while hauling precious alien brandies.
