Join the Elite in the $100,000 CQC Tournament

We’re delighted to announce that today we see the full launch of Elite Dangerous on Xbox One! 

Elite Dangerous has been the first game to come through the Xbox Game Preview Program (GPP) and we’re truly delighted with the response we’ve seen from the community during that time. Remember if you did purchase the game on the GPP then check out this thread which will tell you about what to expect as your account transitions into the full version of the game.

To celebrate this exciting news we’re holding an AMA on the Xbox One Subreddit between 12pm – 3pm BST/7am-10am Eastern. Then, after that, we’ve got Community Manager Ed Lewis bringing you an amazing 4 hour marathon livestream. David Braben will be kicking off the proceedings at 4pm BST/11am Eastern and will then be followed by a fleet of special guests throughout the evening. You can tune in to the stream by checking out our YouTube channel. 

We’re also very pleased to announce our first competitive Close Quarter Combat Tournament. This will be open to all PC, Mac, and Xbox Elite Dangerous players so get practicing! We’ll be running qualifying periods each month where players will be competing for a chance win a free trip to the live final in the UK, covering all flights (where necessary) and accommodation. The total prize budget, including cash prizes, flights and accommodation for qualifying winners will be over a staggering $100,000.

The live final will have a cash prize pot of $15,000! 

We will be releasing full details on the tournament and how to enter in the coming weeks so keep your eyes peeled on the community site and we hope you can join us for the AMA and livestream.
