London, October 11, 2016 – Thrustmaster and Frontier Developments plc will be working together to release a bundle that includes the T.16000M and Elite Dangerous Arena. This collaboration is another step in their continued aim to provide players with increasingly immersive experiences. 

A Deep Space Flight Experience:

A complete pack that enables players to participate in epic space battles, akin to gladiators from the future: this is what Thrustmaster is offering with the T.16000M + Elite Dangerous Arena pack. To remain undefeated in Elite Dangerous Arena, pilots can rely on the T.16000M’s unique features, such as its extreme precision, based on the H.E.A.R.T (HallEffect Accurate Technology™) technology, which uses magnetic sensors to deliver precision 256 times greater than conventional set ups. The game can be downloaded using the voucher included in the T.16000M’s box*. The scratchable area contains a unique code, valid until September 30, 2017, granting players access to Elite Dangerous’ Arena section. Arena features 4 combat spaceships, tactical options that can be unlocked according to leaderboard rankings, 4 combat arenas and battles opposing up to 8 players. This bundle pack also includes the tactical paint-pack which contains 6 different paintjobs for the Faulcon deLacy Cobra Mk III spaceship which can be used in the main Elite Dangerous game to upgrade your ship. 

The Keys to Victory:

The T.16000M is a successful product, and a perfect addition to the Thrustmaster flight sim ecosystem. This extremely precise joystick boasts a futuristic design suited to all flight simulation games. It is also ambidextrous, which will delight both right-handed and left-handed pilots. It features remarkably complete equipment, with 16 action buttons, 4 independent axes including a rudder controlled by rotating the stick, an ergonomic trigger, a multidirectional hat, a wide hand rest and a weighted base. In addition to efficiency and accuracy, it also offers ideal comfort, thanks to its unique design. The T.16000M is compatible with the T.A.R.G.E.T (Thrustmaster Advanced pRogramming Graphical EdiTor) software, which enables players to combine multiple products from the Thrustmaster Flight Sim ecosystem so that they are recognized as a single device on which game-specific mappings can be configured.

  • The T.16000M and the Elite Dangerous Arena game pack is now available, at the suggested retail price of £49.99 (taxes included).
