Dual Universe Kicks Off Alpha 2 with Industry Features and Talent System

Novaquark is proud to announce their second playable Alpha PHase for the sci-fi civilization-building MMO, Dual Universe is now live. Alpha 2 builds upon the community requests with some amazing new content and expands the player-driven economy. On top of the updates in November, Alpha 2 updates the game’s economy, with the ability to mass-produce and barter goods. This is combined with an already fully-editable world, creating a world that is fully created by the players. From ships, outposts, cities, and soon enough, space stations.

“Alpha 2 is a major milestone for us and one we’re really excited to get into player hands,“ said Novaquark founder and Creative Director Jean-Christophe Baillie. “I’m consistently blown away by the ingenuity of the community, so empowering them to run and expand the game’s economy will take Novaquark one step closer to creating the first Metaverse.“

Industry gameplay really shakes up Dual Universe, so players can create their own fully-functioning factories with the aim of mass-producing goods. This will challenge players to create complex production lines and optimize their efficiency as greatly as possible, in order to increase their profits. This isn’t the only change in Alpha 2 though – the in-depth Talent system also drops with it. This will let players acquire new skills and develop their characters. The Virtual Projector will open up further creation options, so players can build from a template, and import existing 3D models as holograms, acting as a sort of virtual support.

The Alpha 2 release comes hot on the heels of Novaquark’s expansion into Canada with a Montreal office, and the recent news that total project funding for Dual Universe has surpassed $22.6M USD. Alpha 3 is already in the works and planned to launch later this year, with the beta planned for 2020. The Alpha 2 of Dual Universe is available now at the reduced price of $60 USD / 60 Euros.
