Head for the stars, take a ship and trade, bounty-hunt, pirate and assassinate your way across the Milky Way galaxy.
It's an awe inspiring, beautiful, vast place; with 400 billion star systems, planets, moons and asteroid fields just waiting to be explored and exploited.
Frontier's David Braben OBE honoured in Queen's Birthday Honours List
Frontier's founder and CEO David Braben has been awarded an OBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours List announced today.
Congratulations from all at Frontier!
It is a great honour, and much appreciated. I have a great team behind me, and I consider the award is for all of us.
I've just got back from an excellent E3 show where our "Elite: Dangerous" game was being shown. It was the first time Frontier has been an exhibitor in our own right at E3 - all previous occasions have been exhibiting our games with a partner like Microsoft, Atari or Sony. We got "Game of the Show" from Escapist Magazine, and together with getting the OBE has been fantastic.
It is really great, and I look forward to getting the honour in person.
