Frontier Developments has revealed the next major Elite expansion with Elite Dangerous: Odyssey coming early 2021. In order to celebrate this announcement, the team has also released the game’s announcement trailer.
As the press release reads, Odyssey marks the birth of a highly anticipated new era for the long running definitive space simulation. It will allow 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.
Odyssey’s emergent gameplay will let players forge their own path through a wide variety of missions. These missions will range from diplomacy and commerce to lethal stealth and all-out combat. The game will also feature diverse settings, objectives, and NPCs, offering a mission variety.
David Braben, Founder and CEO of Frontier, said:
“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.”
