...f (mildy muffled crackle and hiss) radio communication. The thing about this game however is that you should somewhat view it like an MMO in which will require lots of grinding to get the best equipment. All while many will be pleased to simply fly around in a cheap cobra or viper with a wing of friends and never really grind at all. What makes the game great is the nearly infinite ways you can approach the game..i.e. Pirate, Trade, Mine, Explore, bounty hunt, join political factions, rank up in factions for exclusive ships, do bulletin board missions, PVP...etc. All in a 1:1 scale milky way galaxy making it a truly open sandbox.
