The economic space simulator Prosperous Universe has officially launched its third maintenance patch on April 23, 2020, adding a host of updated features to the game. The new player experience aids in encouraging new players to spread out into the far reaches of space and establish new colonies.
Prosperous Universe is a real-time business simulation MMO set in the not-so-distant future. You are the CEO of your own spacefaring company – explore the galaxy, design spaceships, forge alliances, and most importantly: produce, trade, transport, and profit. Manage your business through a highly customizable user interface named APEX, accessible via web browser. Contribute to a purely player driven MMO economy in a persistent universe allowing for a multitude of play styles with no grind to speak of. With its emphasis on realism in everything from the economy to space travel, Prosperous Universe provides a unique experience to players of all backgrounds.
Thousands of players have signed up since Prosperous Universe released its first public version in December of 2018. The game went free-to-play in 2019, staying true to its promise of avoiding microtransactions completely.
