From Press Release:
Cambridge, UK – Dec 8, 2021. Frontier Developments plc (AIM: FDEV, ‘Frontier’), today launched Update 9 for Elite Dangerous: Odyssey, bringing a number of performance improvements, fixes and additional features including the new Scorpion SRV. Elite Dangerous: Horizons players will also see the implementation of a Multi-Limpet controller, allowing for greater flexibility than the previous standalone Limpet controllers.
Vodel’s new Scorpion SRV is built to tackle Odyssey’s extensive new on-foot combat action, allowing players to take the fight to both ground and aerial threats with two pieces of weaponry as standard; take care of waves of infantry with the Surge Repeater’s high-powered laser, or protect the skies with the Aculeus Launcher’s tracking missiles.
Capable of speeds of over 50mph, the Scorpion has been designed as a twin-seat infantry support vehicle able to handle Odyssey’s planetary conflicts, with a driver and a gunner operating autonomously to take down threats. Alternatively, a single occupant can drive and control weaponry at the same time, safe in the knowledge that the Scorpion’s reinforced shielding and armour will stave off all but the heaviest fire.
Update 9 will also introduce the Multi-Limpet Controller for Odyssey and Horizons players, a new module type that works in addition to existing limpet controllers, allowing players to deploy multiple limpet types using a single module slot. This new controller is not intended to replace the existing dedicated limpet controllers and will be balanced against these within the game, allowing basic use of multiple limpet types without a dedicated slot for each.
The Multi-Limpet Controller comes in a variety of different types; Xeno, Rescue, Mining, Operations and Universal. Whether you’re embarking on your next adventure, seeking your next big haul or resisting the long-arm of the law, you’ll be prepared.
Players can purchase the Scorpion SRV (Elite Dangerous: Odyssey players) from military economy ports and the Multi-Limpet Controller (all Elite Dangerous players) from most ship outfitting services, depending on the controller’s role..
Elite Dangerous: Odyssey is available to purchase now on Steam, via the Epic Games Store, or via the Frontier Store. Elite Dangerous and Elite Dangerous: Horizons are available on Xbox, PlayStation, Steam, Epic Games and the Frontier Store.
Note: In order to play Elite Dangerous: Odyssey or Elite Dangerous: Horizons, players must also own a copy of the Elite Dangerous base game.
