Elite Dangerous OdysseySource: Frontier Developments

What you need to know

  • Elite Dangerous is an expansive online sci-fi game that boasts of bewilderingly deep mechanics that continue to expand.
  • The next expansion for the game, Odyssey, is positively massive, and will let players explore planets on foot for the first time ever.
  • Odyssey looks incredible exciting for Elite Dangerous fans, and the team is doing developer diaries on the road to release.
  • The second developer diary explores all the choices the player has, and the multiple ways you can play.

Elite Dangerous is already a pretty incredible game, but the next expansion aims to not only draw in tons of new players, but also attract veterans back to the fold with new gameplay and an astounding number of changes. Elite Dangerous: Odyssey and its enticing first-person gameplay is still a ways off, coming sometime in early 2021, but interested players and fans can get another peak behind the curtains with the game's second developer diary, available to view now.

The first developer diary for Elite Dangerous: Odyssey focused on the planets in the expansion, and how players will be able to explore them, but the second developer diary focuses on the choices in play style. Players will be able to "forge their own path" in Odyssey, playing however they want. You'll be able to choose where to go, how to get there, and even what kind of suit to wear that best suits your needs and desires.

If the Odyssey expansion delivers on the promises that it's making, it'll be an impressive expansion for Elite Dangerous, but it's not available yet, and should come out sometime in 2021. In the meantime, make sure you're prepared by grabbing one of the best HOTAS joystick and throttle combinations you can get.
