There’s another patch inbound for Elite Dangerous, and developer Frontier says it includes a whole raft of fixes for the recently launched Odyssey expansion, as well as some updates for Horizon. The massive space game has had a rough couple of weeks since Odyssey came out, but a steady stream of patches and hotfixes is gradually righting the ship.
Frontier says the next patch, along with its changelog, will be turning up at 1 a.m. PDT / 4 a.m. EDT / 9 a.m. BST June 3, and that it “contains many fixes and improvements for Odyssey” that include optimisations, UI adjustments, “and much more”. The first-person exploration DLC isn’t the only thing it’s changing, either – Frontier says that Horizons “will also receive some improvements.”
Frontier pushed out a first hotfix for Odyssey the day after the expansion launched, and the first major patch arrived just a week later. That patch, Update 1, included a dizzying array of fixes, but Frontier said at the time that it would continue work on improvements to optimisation and the new planetary tech.
Here’s the official announcement:
⌚ A patch and its change list will arrive tomorrow at 09:00 BST (08:00 UTC) with one hour of expected downtime.
