No, Really. Elite IV "As Strong As Ever"


This is a lovely bit of a non-story, via Eurogamer, but it amused me to see it. Of all the UK development teams we'd like to see something concrete from, top of the list has to be David Braben's Frontier Developments. EG claim that Elite IV had been "put on hold", but Braben says "our commitment to the game is as strong as ever." Which is an interesting way of phrasing it. Of course Elite IV is actually second on the list after Frontier's The Outsider, a political thriller that was announced years ago and has subsequently gone into stealth mode. Just to remind myself what was going on with that I dug up the 2007 trailer and posted it below.

Anyway, as is traditional with such things, I must ask you lot what you'd like to see in Elite IV? Full sandbox with some co-op, I'm guessing? You probably don't want a planet-scanning mini-game... (And there are no prizes for saying "better graphics.")
