Greetings Commanders,

We have been overwhelmed by your feedback and excitement through the Elite Dangerous: Odyssey Alpha, your support and dedication is vital in completing the most ambitious expansion in Elite Dangerous history.

We can confirm that, as of this morning, our live game snapshot has been completed and phase four is set to begin as planned on 28 April.

We have been listening closely to your feedback and many members of our community have requested longer in the Alpha to experience the content and share your valuable feedback. This is why we are pleased to confirm that we will be extending the window of play for our fourth phase, and therefore the Alpha will now end on Wednesday 5 May at 08:00 UTC / 09:00 BST.

In addition to this, after a number of community requests, all stored ships captured in the snapshot will now be made available during the Alpha with reduced transportation time and cost to bring those ships into the playable bubble.

We would like to use this opportunity to thank you all once again for your help in taking this giant leap forward for Elite Dangerous. The development team have been incredibly busy reviewing your reports, comments and data from this period. Some of these fixes you will have seen through the phases of Alpha, and many more will be going live with the full PC release on 19 May.

Please remember, if you would like to leave feedback during the remainder of the public Alpha you can do this via the issue tracker, where our development team are eagerly awaiting your reports.

Thank you for listening, this is very reassuring!
It's only a little more time but it can make all the difference in the long run.

I'm so very looking forward to release.
 
Thank you for listening to the community! 50ly bubble is still not much space to play with but having more time to test all our ships is very much appreciated. Excited for release on the 19th :D

Did they confirm we were still in the 50ly bubble? I thought it was still uncertain.

What will the playable area be in Phase 4? The same 50ly as Phase 3?
