Industry and fluffy clouds are all the rage in Dual Universe, as the upcoming sci-fi sandbox kicked off its Alpha 2 test today. Test pilots should also experience a significant change to how their ships handle in space with the advent of true weightlessness. “We were quite happy with how ships translated differently in atmosphere and space, but we hoped to add an improved sensation of weightlessness,” the studio said. “And now it’s done! Now when trying to manoeuver a ship while in the atmosphere, you should experience the true dragless feeling of space and the effects of air upon a ship’s hull.” Even better, the team added the ability for players to leave their ships and use a jetpack to do some fancy zero-g gliding in the void of space. At least you get brakes for when you get too out of control. Good luck recreating that opening scene to Gravity and getting hopelessly lost among the stars! … [Read more...] about Dual Universe kicks off Alpha 2 test and goes zero-g gliding

Fractured, an upcoming MMO released a few bits of big news recently – the first is the status of Alpha 1 Test 2. This is going to be coming sooner than you’d think – the month is July! Beginning on July 10th, 2019, Alpha 1 Test 2 will begin, at 10 AM EDT. The focus of Test 2 is to add new content, which will consist of new creatures, spells and crafting/housing/equipment options. Further information on this update can be found at this link. Fractured also announced that their Kickstarter replica packs are being phased out, and there is a sale on these (which can be found here ). The cost of access/pledging will remain the same, but there will be 3 new basic packs being released that will grant access to Beta 2, Beta 1 and Alpha 2 respectively. In order, these will cost €25 for Beta 2, €50 for Beta 1, €90 for Alpha 2. These will be less “value-oriented”, but the above link will highlight this sale/information further. … [Read more...] about Fractured Reveals Alpha Test 2 Date and Crowdfunding Update
I just noticed on the store that while the Knight pledge pack still has the alpha 1 icon above it, clicking the details button shows only alpha 2, beta 1, and beta 2 levels of access. Can we get some clarification on this? My understanding is that the Knight pledge pack gives access to Alpha 1. Thanks. … [Read more...] about Knight Pledge Pack Still Alpha 1?
If you missed the Ashes of Creation panel at PAX West on Saturday, you’ll be forgiven – and richly rewarded all the same, as Ashes fansite The AOC Dungeon has a positively enormous line-by-line recap of the whole event that probably took more time to write up than the whole stream took the team! Among some of the new and key info is the fact that the alpha 1 phase 1 stress test is beginning this week – don’t call them, they’ll call you, at random from the existing alpha 1 pool (40,000 people signed up for that). Testers will be putting battleground modes, arenas, projectiles, cosmetics, housing, character creation, matchmaking, and the UI through their paces during this phase. The battlegrounds sound interesting; there’s what’s basically a 100-man battle royale BG, a 100v100 castle siege BG, and a co-op city siege BG. Alpha 1 phase 2 kicks off spring of next year, with its hybrod action combat tab target system, about half the races, all the … [Read more...] about PAX West 2018: Ashes of Creation maps out its alpha testing for the next year
