Elite Dangerous: Odyssey is still on track to release this year and soon, we’ll have the chance to try it out for ourselves. This week, Frontier announced an upcoming alpha playtest and detailed the features and content we can expect to see.
The PC alpha test for Elite Dangerous: Odyssey will be kicking off on the 29th of March. To drum up some extra excitement, Frontier has also released a video showcasing an entire new mission from the expansion, which will see Commanders going on foot and engaging in fire fights while raiding a military outpost:
The playable alpha will be our first look at Odyssey’s new boots-on-ground gameplay. Unfortunately, getting into the alpha will require a pre-order of the expansion.
Currently, Elite Dangerous: Odyssey is set to release on PC sometime during the Spring. Then in Autumn 2021, the expansion will also come to PS4 and Xbox One. Next-gen enhanced editions of Elite Dangerous have not been announced yet.
