Warhammer 40,000: Dark Nexus Arena – Early Access Week 1 Plan

DNA_Logo

 

Hello everyone, and welcome to the Arena!

Thank you all for the early feedback as DNA enters Steam Early Access. It has all been very helpful and we are working to address some of the key issues as we move forward.

Here is what you can expect throughout next week:

European Servers

– We are currently running tests on our Servers in Europe. We are planning to deploy those over the weekend or early next week if we run into any issues. This should greatly lower latency and increase responsiveness for those players across the pond.

Spawn Functionality Improvements

– Right now, it’s pretty daunting to load in and get attacked by Wracks and players while you are browsing the shop. We’re making a change so players won’t respawn automatically. You’ll have a chance to buy your items, and respawn when you are ready. No more getting dropped into a raging firefight, and no more farming points off of AFK players.

Tutorials / Player Feedback

– We are setting up some preliminary game introduction materials. In the short term, we’ll be getting out a Wiki where you can easily read up on character abilities and Getting Started Tutorials. We’ll follow up when these are ready to rock and will be adding additional in-game feedback elements throughout the next few weeks to Soul Hunter mode as well.
