‘Elite Dangerous: Odyssey’ Gets May Release Date On PC
It’s nearly time for get your walking boots on, as Frontier Developments announce ‘Elite Dangerous: Odyssey’, the highly anticipated new era for ‘Elite Dangerous’, releases on 19th May 2021 for Windows PC.
‘Elite Dangerous’ is a modern update of the classic 1984 game ‘Elite’, which allows the player to take control of their own starship in a huge open galaxy of players online. Your actions change the galaxy around you in an ever-unfolding story as you explore a detailed 1:1 model of the real galaxy, and be the first to discover one of 400 billion star systems. Start with a small starship and a handful of credits, and do whatever it takes to earn the skill, knowledge, wealth and power to stand among the ranks of the Elite.
Odyssey constitutes the most ambitious Elite Dangerous expansion to date, delivering on the promise of allowing Commanders to explore atmospheric planets on foot for the first time, taking on new missions, and engaging in intense tactical combat, expanding Elite Dangerous’ gameplay from the iconic cockpit experience players have come to know and love over the last seven years.
Independently of their chosen career path, players can meet with other Commanders in social hubs across the galaxy, where they can plan their next missions, form alliances, and acquire and upgrade their gear. This seamless integration of a finely detailed on-foot experience combined with the galaxy-spanning distances of the classic Elite gameplay results in a more wide-ranging experience for all Commanders to enjoy in their own style.
Elite Dangerous: Odyssey releases on PC on 19 May 2021 via Steam, the Epic Games Store and FrontierStore.net. The Odyssey Alpha phase shall end on 30 April. Releases on the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One all-in-one games and entertainment system are planned for Autumn 2021.
