Description of Frontier: First Encounters

Despite being recalled from the shelves due to numerous bugs, this last incarnation of Elite still got a large following of very dedicated followers. FFE (also known as Elite 3) sports new ships, items, missions, and a host of new features. My favorite addition is the overall plotline: particular events happen at specific times in the universe rather than all missions being randomly generated as before, and you could take part in them by taking on “hand-coded” missions. The aliens also make their first appearance in this game to complicate things. Highly recommended, but don’t forget to download the patch. Great news for fans! David Braben’s website, The Elite Club, has released the game and Frontier II, the prequel, as shareware 🙂 Now is your chance to legitimate experience what is one of the most underrated games ever made! Fully patched, of course 🙂
