Commanders, Frontier Developments has released the Elite Dangerous update 1.53 May 19 patch for consoles, and PC got a bigger one that brings in the “Odyssey” content! Console gamers will have to wait until autumn for Odyssey to make its way onto your platforms.
Elite Dangerous Update 1.53 May 19 Patch Notes:
No official changelog for the console version has been shared, but here’s what we know so far regarding Odyssey and what’s planned.
PC release – late spring 2021
Following the completion of our Alpha phase we are targeting a full launch on PC in late spring.
As with every era in Elite Dangerous’ history, we will be closely engaging with our community and continuing to react to feedback refining Odyssey through to the console launch.
Elite Dangerous: Odyssey pre orders will be able to access the game with this release.
Console release – autumn 2021
After continued feedback, iterations and balancing, we are targeting our release on PlayStation®4 and Xbox One in the autumn of this year.
We understand that for many, this additional delay will be frustrating. Once again, we would like to apologise wholeheartedly to our community, especially our console Commanders. However, as mentioned previously, we feel it is vital to ensure that the content being released on consoles meets the highest standards and this will require this additional extension to our roadmap.
Throughout this time we will continue to bring more news, videos and content of the development in progress. We would like to thank you all for the ongoing support and we are very excited to bring in this new era to the game with you. Your feedback, support and involvement is a vital part of this process and we are looking forward to a shared Alpha experience, which will be touching down very soon.
Once the studio releases the official patch notes for console, we’ll update the post.
