Greetings Commanders!

Following on from the excitement of the Elite Dangerous: Odyssey launch date announcement this afternoon, we're now ready to make preparations for the final phase of the Odyssey Alpha, Phase 4, which is due to launch on Wednesday the 28th of April.

The primary focus of Phase 4 will be: Compatibility Testing.

Before Phase 4 can begin, a 'Player Snapshot' of your Elite: Dangerous Commander profile needs to be taken and applied to the Elite Dangerous: Odyssey Alpha.
This snapshot will be taken at 08:00 UTC / 09:00 BST tomorrow, April 23rd.

About the 'Player Snapshot':

  • The snapshot will include:
    • The ship your Commander is piloting at the time of the snapshot being taken. No other ships that you own will accompany you to Alpha Phase 4.
    • Your accumulated credits will transfer across as part of the profile snapshot.
  • Any Commanders in SRVs at the time the snapshot is taken will be moved back to their current ship and transferred accordingly.
  • Fleet Carriers that Commanders currently own will not be transferred across with them to Phase 4, however we are aiming to add the ability to purchase Fleet Carries during the phase itself.
In order to begin Alpha Phase 4 with your profile ready to go, the Elite: Dangerous Alpha servers will be down from approximately 07:00 UTC / 08:00 BST on Monday the 26th of April, returning to order to welcome in Phase 4 on Wednesday the 28th of April.

Full patch notes will follow on Wednesday the 28th along with the start of Phase 4 with a full list of features, fixes and known issues.

On behalf of all teams involved, we want to once again thank you for your hard work and commitment with providing such thorough and thoughtful feedback throughout each phase of the Alpha so far - amazing work.

o7 Commanders.
