After a yr and a half in paid alpha, area sandbox MMO Dual Universe is setting course for a beta launch subsequent month. When the beta begins on August 27th, Dual Universe will probably be shifting from its premium alpha fee to a subscription-based plan. Novaquark say they plan to proceed the subscription technique when Dual Universe reaches full launch.
Unsurprisingly, the space-faring MMO has positioned itself as a must-see for followers of different area simulations like Star Citizen, Eve Online and No Man’s Sky. It’s a persistent area universe with ship battles, buying and selling, player-run political constructions, buildable ships and area stations, and loads of different MMO bits defined in a trailer from earlier this yr. You can catch some laser slingin’ ship battles proven off lately as nicely.
Their latest video beneath is the opening cinematic to the game which hints on the Rebirth Project that despatched a lottery of fortunate people out to start a brand new society in area after Earth was destroyed.
Brendan Caldwell spoke with Novaquark and different builders again in 2017 about chasing the vision of a single shard MMO, which Dual Universe calls its “continuous single shard.”
As for the best way to play as we speak, “alpha backers will receive access to the Beta for free, but should hurry because Alpha packs will soon stop being sold on the company’s website,” Novaquark say. Buying into the alpha proper now will run you €60/$60 whereas the beta subscription value will probably be $6.99 per thirty days.
Novaquark predict the complete launch for Dual Universe someday in 2021. Beta entry begins on August 27th.
