Elite: Dangerous offers a vast galaxy to explore, and the upcoming 'Odyssey' update will finally let players hop out of their ships and walk on strange new alien worlds. Most likely for the very first time, as new developer deep dive “One Giant Leap” showcases. As that TV show about pointy eared aliens and one piece tracksuits said, "To boldly go where no one has gone before... these are the voyages of SS Space Team Alpha".
And this looks to nail the awe that comes from being able to land on a distant planet.
Of course to venture out will require a suit -- which can be seen here. And with billions of potential planets the team at Frontier Developments is going to great lengths to ensure that planetary exploration at the 'on-foot' level is on par with Elite's stunning sense of scale.
And celestial beauty.
The Elite Dangerous: Odyssey development team is lavishing great care and attention to detail in the authentic recreation of the ice and rocky planets players will be landing on. Surface pressure, volcanism, atmospheric composition and other geological agents all play a key part on the structure and natural features of each world, capriciously moulding their appearance and making them unique and distinctive.
One of the most stunning changes Elite Dangerous: Odyssey’s on-foot exploration will bring to the game is a completely new perception of scale. When disembarking from their spaceships, players will notice never seen before details, like alien vegetation. This exotic flora can be analysed to obtain genetic information from every new variant encountered, and players can profit from their discoveries by trading in the data.
Elite Dangerous: Odyssey is set to launch early 2021.
