With January over and done, Dual Universe is ready to blast through a series of pre-alpha tests every weekend in February. The team had a lot to report in its monthly newsletter, including the welcome news that testers can now save constructs via an early version of the blueprints feature.
Another subject that received some in-depth analysis is how the team is planning to handle tricky issues involved with the game’s territory control. The current plan is for Dual Universe to feature both secure (PvP-free) areas and the remainder of the game’s territory (PvP enabled).
“We shouldn’t lose sight of the fact that Dual Universe must remain a game where different types of players can have fun in their own way, and doing so shouldn’t add stress/frustration to the game experience,” the devs said. “We also know that without a few safe places, economy and industry can’t thrive properly.”
The team is planning to host an Ask Me Anything event on Saturday, February 3rd.
