I admit I am not the most technical guy out there - can you help me explain what that link do? When it comes to desktop-based application - I am imagining something like: when you want to play leaguge of legend, you would go to the main page → go to the “download” tab → click on the download button download button. Then, there would be an app where after you double click, the game will launch and you can play the game!" Is the link you attached do something similar? I don’t see any “download” button. Thanks!
The desktop client is already a reality. A closed alpha is advanced in development, not sure if I am allowed to disclose more of this. Some fact checks about the improvements that the desktop version will allow:
1000% rendering performance and improved visual quality
Unlocking of better rendering effects, complex scenes will run better. Think of realtime GI + RTX support in the future. (Not promising anything, just stating benefits)
Unlocking of VR support. Very very important and this is most likely to become a focus point next year. (Again, not promising anything).
Unlocking of world prefetching. This will enable having a snapshot of the world on disk that is patched at the client start. This would greatly diminish the bandwidth requirements. (this also allows a seamless streaming world).
Desktop app is a must if DCL want to expand and become massive! I have a laptop and it’s not bad at all but i have 100% CPU load, meanwhile i can play War Thunder and Dota without any lags. BTW when Desktop client will be available to download? Looking forward. GL devs!
