Dual Universe - multi-planet MMO in development.

Image title

NOVAQUARK studio is trying hard to develop a unique sandbox MMO game. We all know how many attempts there were and how many have achived the goal. But it doesn't mean that other developers should stop and give up. Let's be happy that more and more studios are trying to be successful in the harsh online gaming environment. 

What does the studio of ten people working tirelessly want to bring to us?

It's still hard to guess from just pictures but at least we can read their words.

Thousands of planets, procedurally generated

You start in the world, stepping out of your cryosleep tube, ready to take possession of the new gigantic planet where you have just landed (see the backstory). This planet is one among thousands of others, all beautifully generated and ready for you to explore, exploit and conquer.

Massively multiplayer emerging gameplay

Dual Universe is about true massively multiplayer experience. There are no boundaries, instances, or zones. You can experience real cooperation and competition, forge intergalactic empires or giant cities, gather thousands of players in alliance events and tilt the balance of power with epic battles, or diplomacy.

And what should be unique and attract thousand of players?

In-game editable content

Players are free to build gigantic cities, space ships or orbital stations. Based on a voxel technology, the world is completely editable.

Scriptable ships & constructs

You can script any ship (with LUA) to redefine how you control it, from navigation to weapon systems. You can even script your own AI to assist you.

Stunning top notch graphics

We use Unreal Engine 4, delivering some of the most beautiful immersive environments ever seen in a MMO. It will also be compatible with Oculus Rift.

Real multiplayer ship crew

Ships are habitable, and their control can involve hundreds of players specializing in weapon, nav systems or repair. Get on the deck of the Enterprise and command your crew!

Emerging political systems

Players are free to design their own political system based on a game-enforced contract system. Be a dictator or foster the emergence of democracy, this is your choice.

Realistic in-game economy

The economy of Dual is very realistic. Initiate a market exchange, harvest resources & sell them, start an industrial empire, do marketing and logistics, create a bank or your own company.

If you are interested then read the FAQ to find out more details.

The game should release a playable alpha version in the first half of 2015. Beta release should take another year so the release could be probably in the second half of 2016.
