Frustrated players are negatively reviewing ‘Elite Dangerous: Odyssey’


The latest Elite Dangerous DLC Odyssey has recieved criticism from fans on Steam for poor PC performance and technical issues.

Reviewer SuperDarkNova on Steam struggled to get a consistent 40 frames per second on a GTX 1060, which is one of the most commonly used graphics cards.

The lack of diversity present in Odyssey has disappointed players. The 400,000 new settlements in the game reportedly involve less than ten different activity types according to reviewer Dashex. Who also mentions that there are fewer than 20 unique fauna types in the galaxy.

Server issues have also plagued Odyssey since it launched. Numerous players have voiced their frustrations about not being able to play the game consistently.
