Elite IV coming to this generation gaming hardware

‘This generation gaming hardware’ is a bit vague to say the least, but David Braben of Frontier Development and one of the co-developers of the original ‘Elite’, a hugely successful space-trading game originally on the BBC Micro computer (and then many other 8 bit machines), has said that it is penciled in for a release.

It will be interesting to see how it translates to the current hardware and whether it still retains the compelling game play that the original had back in the 1980s. Elite is definitely up there as an all time gaming classic, having spent many many hours playing it on my 48k ZX Spectrum in the ’80s.
