Elite IV: The Next Encounter (Single Player Version)

Well at last Elite IV as a release date (27/06/2008) on and up on the official Frontier Developments Forums so perhaps the Elite fan can hope that after all these years - finally the latest release of first game I loved too death and actually played till I fell asleep on my acorn electron, and dreamt about is coming to a PC near you.

Interesting to note that the release information states (Single Player Version) - does this mean that there will a multiplayer online version?
We can only hope...

The story is too old to be commented.
