Last week the FFA PvP sandbox Mortal Online 2 ran its third Unreal Engine 5 upgrade test, with a focus on debugging its server to isolate a performance problem by way of a large-scale battle. This week, developer Star Vault is proclaiming victory in that fight.
The latest dev blog calls last week’s PTR round “a huge success” that helped the studio “locate many issues, fix bugs, and optimize several areas of the game to further improve performance.” Additionally, changes made to the game’s structure placement system were also apparently well-received by players. with the studio reporting lots of positive feedback.
This doesn’t mean that the UE5 upgrade is ready for prime time yet, however: There will be a fourth PTR test session opening up sometime this week, which will also introduce some quality-of-life updates to item collision and archer AI behavior. A date and time for this test will be announced later, but for now Star Vault is asking participants of last week’s test to fill out a questionnaire.
