Frontier Developments has eliminated Elite Dangerous: Arena from Steam and the Xbox Store.
According to a post on the forums, the removing of Arena passed off final week.
Elite Dangerous: Arena is a stand-alone product from Elite Dangerous, that includes the PVP mode already included within the recreation together with Elite Dangerous: Horizons. It was made accessible for £four.99/$7.49 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
“We’ve been looking at our metrics which suggest that the vast majority of new and regular Arena players tend to play Arena through the main Elite Dangerous client rather than the standalone Arena one,” reads the put up.
“We’ve made the decision to remove the standalone version of Elite Dangerous: Arena in order to reduce the number of builds that have to be maintained and managed across Steam, Xbox One and in 2Q’17 PlayStation Network, as well as clarifying the choices for new players of Elite Dangerous on these storefronts.”
Elite Dangerous: Arena will proceed to be accessible and supported as a part of the broader recreation, solely by way of the primary menu.
It can be faraway from PlayStation Network in Q2 this 12 months.
