As the Arkship speeds through space towards our final destination, we sleep.
We sleep and we dream.
We dream of worlds we have never seen, that we have yet to set our feet upon.
We dream of alliances that remain to be forged and broken.
We dream of unknown technologies still untested by mankind.
We dream of peace and prosperity. We dream of war and strife.
For as we rest within the bowels of the Novark, nested in our cryogenic beds, dream is our only way to build the future, to get ready for the time when our eyes finally open upon our new lives.
As we go forward without hope of return, we sleep.
And we dream.
Dual Universe is a Continuous Single-Shard sandbox MMORPG taking place in a vast Sci-Fi universe, focusing on emergent gameplay with player-driven in-game economy, politics, trade and warfare. Players can freely modify the voxel-based universe by creating structures, spaceships or giant orbital stations, giving birth to empires and civilizations.
In 2537, Earth has been destroyed. As a Novean, you’re part of a unique space colonization program, designed to rebuild civilization. You have awakened on a new planet, after a cryogenic sleep that has lasted 9,854 years. This is your chance to begin again in a golden land of opportunity and adventure...
The vision for Dual Universe is to create the first virtual online civilization. At the heart of Dual Universe is a truly innovative proprietary technology, which was developed to lay the foundations of the game. The CSSC (Continuous Single-Shard Cluster) manages one single universe with potentially millions of people interacting in it at the same time.
A multi-scale voxel engine enables players to physically modify the world; dig a hole, carve up a mountain or build anything they want, from spaceships to orbital stations, at any scale they desire.
For the first time, everybody plays at the same place, at the same time. No instances, no loading, no transition. Everything is persistent, so everything matters. And that changes everything.
