BTW-Elite Dangerous: Arena, not the original Elite Dangerous game.

Do not buy this if you already own Elite Dangerous.
Elite Dangerous: Arena is a standalone version of lite Dangerous's CQC mode. It is the competitive PVP mode in the full game of Elite Dangerous but without the full open world PVE content.
If you buy the full game you will get access to these modes anyway.
If you are solely looking for the constructed PVP content then this is well worth the price. You are contented to others that play these modes in the full game so the population of games is already pretty high so finding a game is quick.
You rank up after each game and slowly unlock access to new ships and upgrades such as weapons and shields.
Defiantly worth it if you are only interested in the comabt element of the game but if you want the full open world experience make sure to purchase the full title.

So this is pretty much useless to me. I want the open world or nothing.

Elite is the best damn space sim I've played, and also the most boring one (very little to do other than to marvel at the physics and planets). The CQC mode is pretty fun, but I would definitely not pay more than free.

At a glance, I thought the title said Ellen Degeneres...
