It is time to disembark and
look up at the stars once more. Frontier Developments plc (AIM: FDEV) proudly
announced today Elite Dangerous: Odyssey, a new major expansion for Elite
Dangerous, arriving in early 2021.
Elite Dangerous: Odyssey marks the birth of a highly anticipated new era
for the long running definitive space simulation, 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.
Taking life on the frontier of space to new depths, Elite Dangerous: Odyssey’s
emergent 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 and a near infinite amount of content to enjoy.
Conflict will rage as players venture into Elite Dangerous: Odyssey’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 Elite Dangerous 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. We hope you will join us to
continue this journey of discovery and adventure when Elite Dangerous: Odyssey
launches in early 2021.
