Frontier Developments today announced that the PC Alpha for their Elite Dangerous: Odyssey expansion is set to kick off on March 29, 2021. To celebrate the news, devs shared a new gameplay footage.
Highly anticipated Elite Dangerous: Odyssey expansion will have Alpha later this month on March 29, 2021, the development team Frontier confirmed. To celebrate the reveal of the Alpha start date, the team have shared a new gameplay video showing an Odyssey mission playthrough, which features gameplay captured from a raid. Check it out below.
The video shows a team of three Commanders plunge into a daring on-foot raid of a military outpost. Their objective is to disable the power centre and ultimately render the opposing faction powerless, Frontier say in the announcement.
All three Commanders in the incursion team are specially equipped for their assigned role, selected from the wide range of space suits, weapons and equipment available in Elite Dangerous: Odyssey. Their tactical gear grants them an edge in their assigned tasks, whether it is to infiltrate the base avoiding detection, lay down covering fire if the alarm is raised, hacking, or quickly extract their teammates from a tight spot if enemy forces overwhelm them.
Elite Dangerous: Odyssey is set to arrive on PC in late spring 2021 with an Alpha scheduled to begin on 29 March. Releases on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are currently planned for Autumn 2021. To participate in Alpha, you'll need to pre-order the game via Steam, Epic Games Store or Frontier Store.
