Developer and publisher Frontier Development's ambitious space simulation title, Elite Dangerous, features a realistic 1:1 scale representation of the Milky Way galaxy. The studio announced a major expansion coming towards the first end of 2021, and it will bring a whole new dynamic for players to experience.
Elite Dangerous: Odyssey will finally allow players to step foot on the countless planets players visit every day. You can now experience and explore with unrestricted freedom from a first-person perspective, moving on the ground. The studio wants Elite Dangerous: Odyssey to offer players a range of missions with unique objectives, from building relations to all-out space warfare.
The expansion brings a new PvP experience as well, where players have to coordinate with their teammates, select the right equipment, and bring their best abilities to the battlefield where Commanders, SRVs, and starships will all go at it. In addition to that, Elite Dangerous: Odyssey introduces new Destiny-inspired social hubs for players to get to know one other, form alliances, and speak to Engineers for modding and upgrading their weapons.
Founder and CEO of Frontier, David Braben, expressed his delight towards the announcement and the excitement built up in the studio leading up to the announcement. He continued to discuss how the on-foot gameplay brings a new dynamic to the title's already rich experience.
Odyssey is our most ambitious Elite Dangerous expansion to date. 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. We hope you will join us to continue this journey of discovery and adventure when Elite Dangerous: Odyssey launches in early 2021.
