The latest upgrade to Beach Volleyball Online improves key in-game systems and enhances a variety of other features. Both the game engine and the artificial intelligence have been optimized. NPC character action has been vastly improved, as has the physics related to ball movement. Additional enhancements include tweaking item durability so items last longer before requiring repairs, and bringing back the popular sea shell collection mini-game. The game text has been improved in all areas including menus, tutorials, the character creation area, and in the item mall, which is now officially open.
The new item mall allows players to flaunt their individuality in thousands of ways. Items can be purchased either with points earned in the game or with game cash, known as Beach Bucks. Payment transactions are handled by PlaySpan’s UltimatePay system, which allows Beach Volleyball Online players across the world to purchase Beach Bucks using over 85 payment methods including mobile and cash-based options, as well as PlaySpan’s Ultimate Game Card.
