Do ALL of the Tutorials
When you first boot up Elite Dangerous, you will find yourself at the main menu. It may be tempting to simply dive right into the game’s multiplayer mode, but you will need to do a few things first. There are a good number of tutorials you can first delve into after booting up the game. From learning about trading to understanding the game’s warp mechanics, there are quite a few things you will need to learn.
The tutorials are certainly not the most thrilling part of Elite Dangerous. That being said, this game is complex and largely unforgiving. For some games, it is alright to simply skip the tutorial and learn on the fly. When it comes to Elite Dangerous, however, it is highly suggested that you start your playing experience off by completing every tutorial.
