For the space MMORPG-sandbox Dual Universe, update 0.30 Mercury has been released, timed to coincide with the second anniversary of the beta version. It mainly focuses on polishing and improving stability, but also added new content.
The Stock Exchange has appeared in the game – the central commercial hub and exhibition center on Alioth. This is a kind of Helios information board that connects the players. It provides access to shops, ads from players, and a community board. The Lua API toolkit for content creators has also been enhanced with new features. In addition, the developers continue to improve in graphics, and this time they added Screen Space Global Illumination (SSGI) and improved Screen Space Ambient Occlusion (SSAO).
Along with the release of the update, the SUMMER DAC system was introduced, allowing active players to gift one month of subscription to any person who has not previously played Dual Universe.
