Cutting-edge development delayed the release of “Elite Dangerous: Odyssey” on PC and consoles.
Today, the studio shared the latest information about ongoing development Elite Danger: Odyssey.
According to Frontier, the continued impact of the pandemic and the relock in 2021 have put pressure on the team and development schedule, which has led to adjustments and changes to the development roadmap.
The PC version plan was only slightly affected, but the console version plan will undergo major development changes.
The studio is continuing to plan to introduce the alpha channel into the PC player, but now it is a little later than originally planned, and it happened in early spring instead of early this year.
Frontier will use a phased approach to test Alpha, during which time new features and systems will be available online. Elite Dangerous: Odyssey Deluxe Alpha and Lifetime Expansion Pass holders will be able to use this version.
After Alpha is complete, the team’s goal is to fully launch the PC by the end of spring.
This will make the PS4 and Xbox One releases a fall release. According to the developers, the team believes that “it is essential to ensure that the content published on the console meets the highest standards”, which is what the expansion roadmap will ensure.
Frontier Developments presented “Elite Danger: Odyssey” for the first time at the 2020 Game Awards.
Odyssey allows you to take on new tasks and engage in tactical battles. This is your first time exploring a distant world on foot. You can also use different professional suits and equipment options to customize characters for ground operations and meet other commanders in the social center of the galaxy.
The Odyssey is now accepting reservations at a price of 29.99 GBP/39.99 GBP/34.99 Euro.
