Play Elite online: the birth of space simulations


The very first Elite was the kind of game that starts a whole genre. Space sims - I'm talking about the trade-fight-explore kind of sims - started with the creation of David Braben and Ian Bell. Games like Freelancer and EVE Online owe Elite a great deal. The Elite series was so popular that Braben, decades later, gifted us with a new sequel to the very first masterpiece: Elite Dangerous.

You can play Elite directly in your browser.
