open beta period is in full swing, and Working as Intended
has a lengthy list of bug fixes, updates, and general tweaks scheduled to go under the development microscope over the next few weeks.
Ronin, internal systems engineer for WAI
, has updated the official forums with a look at what the team plans to focus on next. Many of the changes are run-of-the-mill and about what you'd expect from a beta client, but some are fairly interesting and bear watching, including the creation of boat routes between continents, the addition of new mining areas and crafting yield tweaks, and changes regarding food and drink effects.
You can check out the full post
on the official Dawntide
site, and while you're at it, you can view a trailer
of open beta gameplay footage as well.
