The highly anticipated Update 13 for Elite Dangerous is now available. This patch brings the almost two-year Azimuth Saga to a close.

The Azimuth Saga storyline in Elite Dangerous was introduced in October 2020. It all began when the Adamastor ship was found traveling on autopilot after two centuries.

All Elite Dangerous players will be able to enjoy the fitting conclusion to the Azimuth Saga even if they have not purchased the Odyssey expansion. However, features specific to Odyssey will only be available to those who have the expansion installed.

Anyway, Update 13 still has plenty to offer, including new features, improvements, and bug fixes. Some of the most notable ones can be found below:

Elite Dangerous: Odyssey
  • The ambient traffic system has been updated in order to broaden the range of ships that can spawn.
  • Removed exploit that allowed more than one NPC ship launched fighter to enter combat at a time.
