This week as part of The Game Awards festivities, Frontier Developments gave us a brand new look at the next expansion for Elite Dangerous. The Odyssey expansion is launching in early 2021, promising one of the biggest gameplay and exploration updates so far.
Elite Dangerous: Odyssey is still on track to release early next year, before then though, there will be beta and alpha playtest phases for those who pre-order the expansion. Ahead of that though, here is a look at Odyssey in action:
Elite Dangerous: Odyssey will allow Commanders to explore planets on foot for the very first time, taking on new missions and engaging in intense tactical combat. You'll get specialised suits and gear options, meet other commanders in ‘social hubs' and form alliances. This all merges the game's traditional cockpit experience with first-person shooter elements.
Of course, there will also be ground vehicles and air-to-ground fights too, so expect plenty of action. We should get a more specific release date for Odyssey in the new year.
KitGuru Says: Are many of you looking to jump back into Elite Dangerous when this new expansion drops? What did you think of the new trailer?
