Elite - Gold Edition

Arc Elite, this game by Hybrid is based on the classic  Ian Bell / David Braben game. It is regarded as the best version of the game, with full cell shaded graphics, and gameplay that no longer is focused on the player. Other ships will engage in their own fights, if the players ship is attacked, some may come to the rescue, if not, depending on the star system, the Police will come to help, and actually feel that they are there to keep order.

Elite is the classic space trading combat title, and an early example of a sandbox game, in that the player can decide how they want to play it. Some would concentrate on the trading of goods between planets, while others would divert funds to increase the shields and weapons on the craft to take on the Space Pirates for their bounty.

Complete with all manuals, ship identification cards, and unused merchandise price pad.
