To celebrate the occasion, Frontier has launched a website: http://elite.frontier.co.uk which hosts information and media on the original Elite and its two sequels.

You can also share some of the great memories of Elite told through other players’ eyes, including videos of David Braben and others from Frontier discussing their own experiences of Elite and its sequels, and send your own message.

To kick off the celebration, an online Elite Questions & Answers session with David Braben will take place on Wednesday 23rd September on Twitter. To take part, simply follow the Frontier Twitter channel (www.twitter.com/frontierdev) and submit your questions to @frontierdev. Selected questions will be rewarded with a limited edition Elite t-shirt, and one lucky grand prize winner will be awarded framed Elite artwork signed by David Braben.
