Dual Universe is a sandbox MMORPG taking place in a vast, continuous single-shard universe. The game features player-driven in-game economics, politics, trade and warfare. The voxel-based universe can be altered by players by creating structures, spaceships or giant orbital stations.
When it comes to space exploration, the game is does not utilise the effortless and instant journey between the stars that has been perpetuated by the Star Wars franchise and No Man’s Sky, but rather a true challenge that takes time and planning.
Exploration will be necessary because in order to craft new ships and buildings you will need to mine resources from planets and when those resources are mined they will not re-spawn. Fortunately the universe will feature ‘virtually unlimited’ procedurally generated planets.
The game has been created by French developers Novaquark, following a successful Kickstarter campaign in October 2016.
