Frontier Developments has announced Elite Dangerous: Odyssey, a new major expansion for Elite Dangerous, arriving in early 2021. Elite Dangerous: Odyssey marks the birth of a new era for the long-running space simulation game, allowing players to touch down on countless new planets powered by stunning new tech and explore with unrestricted freedom from a first-person, feet-on-the-ground perspective.
The gameplay will let players forge their own path through a wide variety of missions, ranging from diplomacy and commerce to lethal stealth and all-out combat. Diverse settings, objectives, and NPCs will offer endless mission variety with a near-infinite amount of content to enjoy.
Conflict will rage as players venture into the expansion’s intense combat experience. Coordinating with your teammates and selecting the right equipment for the mission at hand will be key to master a multi-layered, tactical sphere of group combat where Commanders, SRVs, and starships converge.
Though the universe can be a cutthroat, unforgiving place, players can find solace and regroup in social hubs spread throughout the galaxy to plan their next contracts, form new alliances, and even procure the coveted services of the Engineers. These public spaces are also the ideal place to acquire and upgrade weapons and gear to suit each Commander’s own gaming style.
“Odyssey is our most ambitious Elite Dangerous expansion to date,” said David Braben, Founder, and CEO of Frontier. “Extending coverage to the super-fine scale that is needed for on-foot gameplay while maintaining the vast raw distances measured in light-years is a huge achievement by the team and greatly extends the already-rich Elite Dangerous experience.”
