Bounty searching’s at all times been higher with pals—and with this week’s huge replace to Elite Harmful: Odyssey, now you can share the spoils of your planetside missions with the remainder of your crew.
Odyssey’s Replace 5 brings land missions in step with their spacefaring counterparts, letting you share gigs along with your wing. Objects and goals will all depend in direction of the identical pool, with everybody eligible for a similar rewards. Goal objects might be dealt with by the staff chief on departure, and objects carried by teammates who die throughout a mission will be reclaimed.
That you just could not gang up for heists collectively on this approach at launch was a startling omission, one whose repair ought to make ground-based adventures a extra tempting proposition. However simply getting these mates to jet round Odyssey within the first place ought to now be a little bit simpler, too.
Replace 5 comes with a staggering array of bug fixes, sufficient that the patch notes have been cut up into two parts on Steam. Main adjustments embrace an entire retuning of ship inside lights, extra lenient AI guards, and higher terrain element on older planetside. However the replace covers nearly every little thing, from audio mixing and server enhancements to a very huge checklist of UI tweaks.
Odyssey notoriously launched in a reasonably shoddy state, sufficient in order that Frontier CEO David Braben felt compelled to issue an apology. The growth has obtained a number of major bug-fixing updates since, bringing it ever nearer to ship-shape. It is only a disgrace that between doll-like NPCs and uninspiring missions, Odyssey’s greatest issues would require more than another round of bug fixes.
