Betawatch: Dual Universe gets better graphics in its biggest beta update

    
4
And a real universe.

This is the biggest update for Dual Universe since it was first playable, according to the studio itself. That’s sizable! This update is big (yeah, yeah, yeah)! And it includes not only better graphics but better jet packs, if you felt yourself previously weighed down by poorer graphics and less enjoyable jet packs.

More beta news, while we’re at it:

Hopefully you enjoyed this magical trip down the beta lane! If you did, why not check out our list of games in testing down below? Some of them might feel magical to you as well. And, as always, if something skipped test phases without us noticing, you can let us know down in the comments.

As always, we consider an MMO to be in open testing if it features free, public signups and will server wipe prior to launch. An MMO is marked in closed testing if it’s running a private test phase that cannot freely be accessed by the general public; it’s usually under NDA as well. Early access and crowdfunded MMOs whose tests we deem legitimate will be included. So-called “open beta” soft-launch MMOs with cash shops, no sign of launch in the west, or limited interest for our readers will not be listed; we also do not list expansions, with occasional exceptions.

I made it into space once and was turned into giblets by some sort of borg cube before I could figure out how to hohmann transfer to another planetary orbit.

Game has potential in spades, but not for a slow, eusocial person who just wants to figure out the mechanics and mine some advanced ore.

Does “better graphics” mean it doesn’t take half an hour to load the first area for a 5 fps frame rate?
