As with all other expansion packs for the title, given players pay a monthly subscription fee this latest major update and all events associated with it are free
Odyssey is set to offer new tools for exploring the stars, challenges you to breach the unknown for adventure and rewards and to face what lies on the other side. A re-imagined scanning system, intuitive navigation and new exploration modules will aid you as you search the heavens for your next conquest.
