The Elite Dangerous Odyssey Expansion will have on-foot space exploration and more!

Players will now get to leave their spaceship and embark on on-foot adventures! They can now have more gameplay options and a complete space exploration experience. This opens the door to a new world of possibilities. The Odyssey expansion pack took advantage of the new on-foot gameplay and has introduced opportunities for combat-based missions:

“Experience intense first-person combat, kit out your character with an array of weapons and gear, and coordinate with teammates to master a multi-layered, deep, tactical environment where Commanders, SRVs, and Starships converge.”

However, if players do not feel like engaging in fights, they can embark on quests with the aim of exploration. It is as the official description says:

“Take on a wide variety of contracts and play your way, from diplomacy and commerce to lethal stealth and all-out combat. Diverse settings, objectives, and NPCs offer endless mission variety and a near-infinite amount of content to enjoy.”

Furthermore, the title practically lets players carve their own journey and story. Players can find out what they are best at, and walk down that path!
