On the back of news that Horizons would be free starting October 27, Elite Dangerous has released the latest dev diary for their 2021 expansion, Odyssey.

The new diary is called “Forging Your Path,” and focuses on how you can create your own narrative. The video is hosted by Game Director Piers Jackson, Art Director Chris Gregory, Lead Designer Gareth Hughes, Principal Audio Designer Matthew Florianz and Principal Animator Felix Ilsley.

In Odyssey, you can actually step onto billions of planets, explore outposts, and more. To that end, the dev diary looks at a new approach to missions, station interiors, different spacesuits, and gives a taste of how commanders can interact with a vast range of new characters on foot, and how the game can work even without owning your own ship.
