Elite Dangerous: Odyssey players will be put in separate galaxy to base game friends
14 May 2021

Elite Dangerous players wanting to make use of the new features found in the space sim's on-foot-focussed Odyssey expansion will be required to play in an expansion-exclusive version of the galaxy when it comes to PC on 19th May, separating them from their base game friends.

Odyssey, of course, delivers a considerable shake-up to Elite Dangerous' classic cockpit-focussed formula, enabling Commanders to stretch their legs and step out of their ships in order to stroll about space stations, settlements, and planetary terrain for the first time.

There's first-person combat and exploration, plus a host of new missions types (including team-based on-foot PvP), all supported by a new planetary generation system designed to bring some stunning vistas to Elite Dangerous' procedural universe.

Odyssey expansion is out today.

By far the biggest update in the game's 7 year history.

UPDATE 24TH MAY 2021: Frontier Developments boss David Braben has issued a public apology for ongoing problems with Elite Dangerous Odyssey.

The expansion, which launched last week, has suffered from performance issues, server outages and a raft of bugs.

"First and foremost, I would like to apologise wholeheartedly to those who have been suffering from these problems," Braben said in a post on the Frontier forum.

"I would like to reassure you that we take these issues very seriously and that they are our top priority and focus."

Massive number of fixes. It might be good enough to play now. :)

That's great can't wait to go on it but I'm going to leave it for a month or 2 just to make sure.
