Elite: Dangerous Sells 1.4M

Frontier Developments announces Elite: Dangerous has sold 1.4 million copies just over a year since launch of the space combat sequel. The announcement has more on the success of this release:

Frontier Developments plc (AIM: FDEV) today announced it has sold 1.4 million units of Elite Dangerous across PC, Mac and Xbox One.

Elite Dangerous launched for PC in December 2014 following a successful crowdfunding campaign. Mac and Xbox One releases followed in May and October of 2015, and regular gameplay updates were released throughout the year.

Elite Dangerous has been a flagship title for virtual reality since its first alpha test in December 2013, and in December 2015 Elite Dangerous became the first triple A game to offer full native SteamVR support.

“We have an amazing player community,” Frontier CEO David Braben said. “The average play time among our 1.4 million players is 60 hours – that’s a massive 84 million player hours and counting.

With the community’s feedback, we’re constantly making Elite Dangerous better than ever. We have incredible long-term ambition and we will continue to deliver on those ambitions. We will detail more exciting developments for Horizons very soon.”

Today Elite Dangerous is heading into its second year with the Elite Dangerous: Horizons season pass granting access to major gameplay expansions including Planetary Landings, ship-launched fighters, Multicrew cooperative play and more.

Elite Dangerous: Horizons is available for all existing Elite Dangerous players for £29.99 ($44.99, €40.49, 2,992 Rubles) at FrontierStore.net and on Steam. New players can purchase Elite Dangerous: Horizons with full access to Elite Dangerous for £39.99 ($59.99, €49.99, 3,990 Rubles).

If you do PVP then you'll wants a HOTAS and learn to fly without flight assist so you can keep up to the pro fighters.
But for PVE you can use an XBox controller with the advanced layout and almost never have to touch the keyboard. Instead the ABXY buttons become modifier keys for the DPAD. So hold X and you get one set of commands on the DPAD, hold Y and you get another set.
Also, pick up Voice Attack ($8) and either configure it yourself or spend the money on one of the HCS Voicepacks and get a fully configured voice control profile. The voice packs are absolutely worth it. Not only do they give you a ton of voice controls, they're professionally produced to feel like their part of the ship.
Gameplay-wise ED is still mostly a large sandbox, but they're creating an amazing framework as they go. Check out the Fuel Rats website before you go out and run out of gas on a trip. Knowing about them will save your life
