Yes, folks, Elite Dangerous Arena is free this weekend until 11th July 2016 (On PC)
Remember Elite Dangerous is not the full Elite game with trading and ability to save money to purchase and customize your spacecraft. Instead, Elite Dangerous Arena focuses on straight hard and fast space combat.
Fly agile fighters and go head-to-head against the galaxy’s greatest pilots in PVP dogfights - easy to pick up controls reward your developing skills with more to master for that ultimate combat edge. Choose your ship, customise your load out and prepare for instant Arena-based action to earn the right to become Elite.
Elite Dangerous: Arena brings Elite Dangerous’ Close Quarter Combat (CQC) PVP game to players as a standalone release, featuring full cross-compatibility with the large and growing Elite Dangerous player community.
