Elite Dangerous: Odyssey Massive Update Brings Optimization Improvements, Lots of Fixes

Elite Dangerous: Odyssey has been suffering from stuttering when players are trying to explore the game’s planets on foot. This has been the expansion’s main issue since its debut last year, so it’s no wonder that out of the 6,000 reviews on Steam, more than a third are negative.
