Camelot Unchained gets better visuals, runs weekend alpha test
Mark Jacobs has lists and lists of progress being made on Camelot Unchained as the game continues its "march toward beta." In this week's newsletter, Jacobs counts off all of the improvements the team has made, saying that a weekend test is currently underway.
"We are going to hold an Alpha and IT test this weekend, starting now," Jacobs reported. "If all goes well with this test, we’ll open it up for Beta 1 next week, as soon as we can resolve a couple of bugs that we know are lurking in the code. In the meantime, Alpha and IT folks: Enjoy the weekend, but please keep in mind that we do not consider this a truly stable build, so problems are expected."
Camelot Unchained's visuals have undertaken a noticeable uptick in quality thanks to the implementation of high-dynamic-range (HDR) imaging in the newest build. The team had a half-dozen new screenshots to show off how the countryside and characters look.
