The Dual Universe team has posted a new developer blog to let fans and players know what's coming in the next build headed to the Live Server in May (hopefully!). Pre-alpha players can look forward to several new features including Scanning & Mining, the "first iteration of Trade mechanics & Market Units, overhauled Piloting Mechanics, and more.

Piloting Mechanics revamp

We heard you. The previous piloting mechanics excessively relied on vertical boosters to leave a planet’s atmosphere and enter space. That wasn’t what we had in mind for these engines. Our goal is to have a set of engines that will cover different use cases so that specialized ships can be built depending on what type of mission is required. We have worked on a revamp of the engines, adding new ones such as the rocket boosters you saw in the DualX video, and redefining others. That includes Wing Elements, Anti-Gravity Generators, and lots of exciting new gameplay to experiment with! We will release a dedicated blog article with more detail about this very soon so that we can collect your feedback ahead of the launch.

You can read the full details on the Dual Universe site.
