Dual Universe

Dual Universe


For this September we should expect the Aplha of Dual Universe to come out if everything goes to the plan

and will be published by TBD. Now it is in development under Novaquark and both directed and designed by

Jean-Christophe Baillie. The writing part goes to Alain Damasio and the composing of the program music goes

to Maxime Ferrieu. From its technical side, the game uses Unigine 2 as its game engine. The platform will be

Microsoft Windows only. This game will be MMORPG based on space trading and combat, sandbox and

multiplayer only (because MMORPG ;) ) and will be in first-person. It will be combining elements of

Eve Online and Star Citizen, as well as Minecraft, No Man’s Sky, and Space Engineers which already

sounds extraordinary, knowing these games.

The game is set in a continuous single-shard universe, wherein you are able to fully edit the environment by

building structures and altering terrain, as well as being given the ability to script the components within

vehicles and other built objects. A heavy focus is also placed on allowing for collective social gameplay

involving exploration, mining, crafting, trade, politics and warfare. It relies on a server technology that

Novaquark has termed a CSSC (Continuous Single-Shard Cluster), which allows all players to play the

game simultaneously together in the same universe without the need for instancing of player zones or

loading screens.

The backstory of the game begins in the year 2027, with the discovery of a neutron star on a collision

course for Earth's Solar System. Human civilization had roughly 500 years to develop a plan to leave

Earth and find new planets to inhabit, and after centuries of research and development, several

Arkships (extremely large and resilient space-faring vehicles) were built to carry millions of

passengers in cryosleep to the farthest reaches of the Milky Way Galaxy. During the year

2510 the first Arkships began to flee the Earth heading towards different areas of the galaxy.

As the Arkships traveled on their way to their final destinations, the neutron star discovered in

the year 2027 destroyed Earth's solar system and all the planets within.

In the year 12477 one of the Arkships, the Novark, arrives on the earth-like planet Alioth, planting itself

firmly into the ground. It is from this Arkship that all players will enter the game for the first time.
