Except there is. A reason to avoid it, I mean.
The game is made by Frontier Developments. Headed by David “I dont what game I am actually MAKING” Braben. A studio wholly dedicated to the philosophy of Minimum Viable Product, they exist to pedal two things: Promises in order to obtain funding, and mediocrity so they can claim they fulfilled at least the letter, if not the spirit, of those promises.
After the total debacle that is the 3 year old tech demo of Elite Dangerous, with its RNG Gambling grind trying and failing to mask its complete lack of compelling game play outside of meaningless horde mode in space combat, I cannot think of a developer who deserves your hard earned money less than Frontier. I dont ever pirate media, but even if I did want to play this game, I would seek out a cracked copy rather than support this developer with more of my money. After the utter mediocrity I received in exchange for buying Elite Dangerous (twice) they wont get another cent from me until they begin to actually include game PLAY in their games.
