Today, Novaquark is excited to announce that the interplanetary exploration and civilization-building MMO tools of Dual Universe are now in the hands of every user who previously supported the game during its 2016 Kickstarter funding campaign. Bringing the game’s population to over 11,000 players – including each and every one of their past Kickstarter backers, as promised – Novaquark is blowing the hangar bay doors off their regularly-scheduled play sessions to celebrate, kicking off the longest continuous play session to date.
Running from December 20, 2018 to January 7, 2019, the Dual Universe community will have more time than ever before to explore the stars and create to their hearts’ content, giving back to the game’s dedicated players who have already set out to create a sci-fi universe worth exploring and celebrating the game’s Alpha launch earlier this month. From fleets of space-worthy ships to hoverbikes, all the way over to an intergalactic representation of one of Earth’s most recognizable fast food joints, Dual Universe’s community lies at the heart of its successes.
Plus, encouraging the community to flex their creative muscles over the course of this massive 2+ week play session, Novaquark is also kicking off a tournament to crown the community’s greatest ship-builders. Leveraging Dual Universe’s flexible voxel-based creation tools, players are encouraged to build the ship of their dreams, fitting into one of two size categories – 16 meters and 32 meters – before the contest ends on January 12, 2019.
Dual Universe is available now in its Alpha 1 phase, with Alpha 2 slated to arrive in the first half of 2019.
