Elite Dangerous: Odyssey, the major upcoming expansion for Elite Dangerous that'll see players exit starships and engage in ground warfare on alien worlds, was delayed earlier this year into Spring 2021 for PC users and sometime in the fall for console players.
Fortunately, players on PC will also get to try this expansion out before the official release, as Frontier Developments announced today that the Elite Dangerous: Odyssey PC Alpha arrives on March 29. Frontier Developments also shared some new gameplay footage of a mission. In the video below, you can see three Commanders take on a hostile outpost in a raid.
Elite Dangerous is already widely considered one of the best PC games available, so it'll be interesting to see how this expansion turns out.
The full release still doesn't have an official date beyond sometime in late Spring 2021, so we'll be sure to share an update when Frontier Developments reveals the exact release date. You can wishlist Elite Dangerous: Odyssey on Steam right now and it's also available on the Epic Games Store and the Frontier Store.
