Dual Universe’s September launch was one of the quieter events of the MMO year, which probably isn’t a good thing. Still, the devs at NovaQuark continue to buckle down and improve the space sandbox to make it worth players’ time.
In fact, the game’s second post-launch content release, Update 1.2, is scheduled to arrive on December 12th. This patch reworks asteroids so that they’ll spawn and despawn randoml and gives players a better way to find abandoned wrecks to salvage.
However, the biggest feature of the update is the new tactical map: “Are you looking for a fight or trying to avoid one? Whatever your aims, we’re adding a new tool for you to navigate with more precision and awareness of the space around you. With integration into the piloting and gunner HUD, the Tactical Map allows you a clearer view of your surroundings and a better ability to interact with the map.”
