Arriving in December 2020 simultaneously on PC, Xbox, and PlayStation the update allows players to step foot on the planets.

“Commanders will uncover the mystery of what’s inside each of the 8 Maelstroms, as they enter the giant caustic gas clouds that arrived with Update 14 and face an unprecedented level of Thargoid aggression. Update 15 also brings significant new features to the game, including a brand-new class of Thargoid ship and additional on-foot mission elements.”

“By equipping their ship with the new Thargoid Pulse Neutraliser module, Commanders will be able to prevent the Maelstrom’s shutdown pulse from affecting their ship, allowing them to journey deeper into the cloud. Waiting for them within is an extraordinary spectacle along with new discoveries to be made – not to mention scores of Thargoid ships.”
“In addition, this update brings a new on-foot mission type to Elite Dangerous: Odyssey. Commanders will find these in starports affected by the Thargoid War, with the objective taking players to an abandoned settlement where they’re tasked with restoring the power to help in the ongoing conflict. Once they arrive, they’ll contend with a mysterious new variant of Thargoid Scavenger called the Revenant, a powerful enemy sentry that requires more than just a straightforward run-and-gun approach in combat.”
