With limited-run tests on September 30th and October 21st, Dual Universe is taking small steps for dev-kind into the pre-alpha world. The team reports that these tests were successful in both operation and in providing feedback, with over 1,000 unique players logging in to the pre-alpha. One group of players even managed to create and launch a ship that discovered a new planet during the test.
The test contained several new features, such as a beginner player experience and in-game tutorials. The team said that with mods and Lua, players will be able to make their own in-game guides to share with others as well.
“This pre-alpha launch was a huge and fantastic moment for all of us,” Novaquark reported.
