Now Playing: Elite Dangerous: Arena - Launch Trailer

No Caption Provided

If you already own Elite Dangerous or its follow-up, Elite Dangerous: Horizons, you already have access to Arena. The version being given away is a standalone release that doesn't require you to own anything else, but it's otherwise identical to what Elite Dangerous owners have.
