The weekly update from the folks at Worlds Adrift has offered a couple of intriguing pieces of information for those who aren’t otherwise interested in the air-faring sandbox MMO’s development minutiae. Namely, it confirmed the arrival of a World Adrift PTS for those who are looking forward to testing the title’s features.
The announcement of the PTS was made during a livestream this past Thursday, which revealed that the server will make its way to the sandbox at some point in the end of July. The devs promise that the builds on PTS will feature substantial updates in order to help “find the big weird live bugs that need hotfixes” as well as speed up the dev process of larger updates.
The devs have also teased an upcoming plan that will help what Bossa Studios calls its most active and outspoken community members better collaborate with the studio on “a more streamlined, wholesome and collaborative level.” Whatever this plan is, it has no release date, though it is directly associated with the incoming Alliance system.
More details about how the game’s PTS will be handled are expected to arrive this coming Tuesday, July 24th shortly after Patch 0.2.2.X goes live. Those who have questions about the test server are invited to leave them in the comments section of the announcement.
Opening a PTS is certainly one of the more obvious decisions the team at Worlds Adrift could have made, but we’re still glad to see that it’s coming soon and hope it will be of benefit to the devs and players alike. Now that we’ve said our peace there, how about we learn more about this community initiative thing, hm?
