Description from the packaging.

The original computer game Elite, shook the computer games industry to its foundations as the first 3-D polygon space simulation back in the mid 1980's. The game was an unprecedented success and grew to such cult status that games' players formed their Elite Fan Club. A feat yet to be repeated, the standard was set and gave rise to a multitude of sci-fi simulation 'wannabees.'

Now as popular as ever, this unique style of game has been taken to the limit with the astonishing Frontier- Elite II.

The most eagerly awaited sequel to date, Frontier pitches you far, far into the future to the year 3200. Civilizations have spread through the galaxy hundreds of light years from Earth in all directions. Vast areas of the galaxy remain unexplored and with many thousands of worlds now settled in the cosmos, a rich and varied life of adventure awaits.

Take on the role of a space trader known to moonlight as an intergalactic mercenary and watch the Universe unfold before your very eyes.

Frontier features:

  • Beautifully animated introduction sequence.
  • A choice of classical music compositions to accompany your missions.
  • Due to the author's interest in astronomy, all of the planets and moons of our own star system and others, (around 100,000,000,000) are generated in accordance with current theories of planet formation.
  • Play the game in a variety of ways including manning your spacecraft through a massive 82 basic missions, or play without risking the missions at all.
