A new Elite Dangerous dev diary takes a look at the first person combat in the upcoming Odyssey expansion.

First, in case you missed it, check out the first gameplay trailer for Odyssey. In this latest dev diary, Game Director Piers Jackson, Art Director Jonathan Bottone, Lead Designer Gareth Hughes, Assistant Producer Samantha Marsh, Principal Audio Designer Joe Hogan, Senior Audio Designer Dylan Vadamootoo and Principal Animator Felix Ilsley take a closer look at the combat in the upcoming expansion.

The Sphere of Combat dev diary demonstrates Odyssey’s transformative shift in Elite Dangerous gameplay, showing how Commanders who have found their feet can wield a wide selection of weapons to win out against any opponents. These new weapons will range from assault rifles, shotguns and SMGs, to heavier anti-spacecraft weaponry, each dealing deadly thermal, kinetic or explosive damage, and offering its own distinct advantages.
