Changes To Elite Dangerous Default Download

Greetings Commanders.

As of Monday, June 19th Elite Dangerous 'Live' will will be the default download version on Steam.

Legacy will be available as an optional alternative, ready to be installed via selection through the launcher product list. 


How will this affect my installation? 

  • I am a non-Odyssey owner with nothing installed: Pressing "Install" on Steam will download the 'Live' version of Elite Dangerous.¬†

  • I am an Odyssey owner with nothing installed:‚ÄĮPressing "Install" on Steam will download the 'Live' version of Elite Dangerous and Odyssey content.¬†

  • I own Legacy and have not installed the 'Live'¬†version of Elite Dangerous: Steam will uninstall Legacy as it is no longer the default download and will install the 'Live' version of Elite Dangerous. Legacy will need to be re-installed, if desired.

  • I am an Odyssey owner with the game already installed:¬†Pressing ‚ÄúUpdate‚ÄĚ on Steam will verify your files, but no changes will occur to the 'Live' version. However the Legacy version will be removed as it is no longer the default and will need to be re-installed, if desired.

  • I am a non-Odyssey owner, but I have the Live game and Legacy already installed:‚ÄĮPressing "Update" on Steam will verify your files, the 'Live' version of Elite Dangerous will remain however the Legacy version will be removed as it is no longer the default and will need to be re-installed, if desired.


How do I Install Legacy? 

  • Launch your copy of Elite Dangerous.
  • Select "Legacy Elite Dangerous" from the launcher's sub menu.
  • Select "Install"
