PD Beta is being built upon the updates included in the Alpha Release, which brought the following upgrades to users:
- 11 unique four-acre parcels of ultra-realistic land;
- Two stock playable avatars;
- Four NFT art galleries displaying stock artwork;
- Non-player character host interactions;
- Mini games; and
- The Gutter Trap House in affiliation with the Gutter Cat Gang.
