About Dual Universe

  • UNIVERSE (available in test version):
    The first fully editable universe made for players by players. The only
    limit is your imagination! Gather your friends and build on a truly
    epic scale, from ships, cities and space stations, to Lua scripted
    puzzles and interactive constructs.
  • MASSIVE (available in test version):
    Dual Universe is the first game where potentially millions of players
    can interact together simultaneously, inside the same giant universe. We
    call it the Continuous Single Shard Cluster (CSSC) technology. This
    proprietary technology means no multi-server player separation,
    instances or loading times, just one enormous, persistent universe.
  • EXPLORATION (partially available in test version):
    Explore & Discover new worlds with your friends, find rare
    resources and build the greatest place in the universe. Will you be a
    nomad treasure hunter, or a calculating profiteer?
  • ECONOMY (partially available in test version):
    Dual Universe will have the most realistic economy system ever made in a
    game. From weapons and tools, to spaceships and giant space stations,
    build and trade everything to everyone - at your price - on your own
  • WARFARE (work in progress):
    Fight for supremacy, resource control or geostrategic advantage, as you
    join with fellow players and create your own defense systems, build
    warships, cities and space stations. Will you defend yourself or lay
    waste to your enemies?
  • POLITICS (work in progress):
    Be a lone wolf or choose an organization or build your own, hire new
    players, fight other alliances, cut deals with them or rule your own
    part of the Universe with this completely open political landscape, full
    of emergent gameplay opportunities.
