In the latest hype builder for Elite: Dangerous’ forthcoming Odyssey expansion, the devs of the game talk up the various features and foci of FPS combat in the third episode of the Road to Odyssey video series.
The video not only offers up a look at FPS gameplay in action but also talks up the fact that SRVs and spaceships can enter combat areas, which changes the dynamic and hopefully adds some unpredictability to the way combat operates in the game. The devs also promise that there will be more tactical moments when in combat and puts a great deal of importance on character loadout. The video further confirms that there are three classes of weapons: plasma weapons, lasers, and kinetic weapons, all of which have distinct visual and sound elements to provide character.
It’s part sizzle reel, part informational video, and all extremely intriguing, and it’s available for your viewing pleasure below.
