Elite Dangerous: Odyssey Launch Trailer
Elite Dangerous: Odyssey marks the first time that players will be able to land on planets, explore on foot, and engage in boots-on-the-ground combat. The new launch trailer features in-game footage that offers a glimpse at what players can expect from the expansion.
David Braben, CEO and founder of Frontier, waxed poetic when describing the achievements of the Elite Dangerous team in a recent news release. “The team have pulled off a fantastic achievement here across a mind-bending scale–from the detail within a human footprint to the vast distances across stellar systems and beyond is breathtaking, in a rich, detailed and accurate recreation of the Milky Way in 1:1 scale,” said Braben. “For me it is not just the detailed exploration and combat, but the gothic beauty of watching stars, planets, moons, moons-of-moons rise and fall or slowly pirouette in their often complex paths in the night sky, while each tiny dot or nebula in that sky is really there and can be visited.”
Elite Dangerous: Odyssey releases for PC on May 19. The expansion will come to consoles later this fall, but no release date has been specified.
