Dual Universe will begin its Beta phase on August 27, 2020. The game’s NDA will lift at the start of the Beta as well, which means players will be free to stream and create content for the game. Dual Universe is expected to fully launch out of Beta sometime in 2021.
If games like Eve Online or No Man’s Sky are your jam, then Dual Universe may be right up your alley. Dual Universe is a unique MMO that takes place in a continuous, shared world, where everything is capable of being edited. After Earth was destroyed by a neutron star, survivors are tasked to recreate society on far off worlds in undiscovered systems.
Dual Universe offers a series of complex creation tools that give players a breadth of options for altering their surroundings. You can design your own buildings, weapons, and spaceships. There will be a working economy as well. Overall, Dual Universe is attempting to simulate a real society where you are free to shape your world.
“We’ve been working on Dual Universe for over four years, and after completing the foundation for all main gameplay pillars, we’re presenting a solid idea of what this unique game offers to players, and a fully playable game for Beta,” said Novaquark CEO Jean-Christophe Baillie. “This is a huge milestone for us, as it is the culmination of so much hard work from the developers and a direct result of the community’s commitment to improve the game. I’m incredibly proud of everyone involved.”
