Frontier Elite II was released in 1993 as the long-awaited follow-up to Elite. This sequel was written by David Braben, who had co-authored the original Elite. In this new game, numerous new ideas were introduced
For the first time, the game was set in the real galaxy, with recognisable star names and systems including the solar system. Also for the first time, players could land on the planets as well as dock at orbital stations, and conduct their business there

In early 1995 Gametek re-released Frontier Elite 2 as part of their new Advantage Point budget range. It was produced in the same big "big box" style as the original release. The contents included the manual, the game on CD-ROM, the quick start guide and a software registration card. The gazetteer, fiction book, star poster and t-shirt card all appear to have been omitted.
