Dual Universe Overview
Dual Universe claims itself to be "the ultimate sandbox: a single-server universe shared by potentially millions of players." The game’s innovative “Continuous Single Shard” technology allows millions of players to play in the same virtual world at the same time, without loading between zones, time dilation or server instantiation. "The dream of a persistent universe shared by millions of players is finally around the corner."
10,000 years after a neutron star collision destroyed Earth, you and millions of others awake from cryosleep in a new galaxy. You are the new inhabitants of this distant land, and your goal is to rebuild society in this brand new solar system. Make your mark in this new universe by playing whatever role you wish. Dual Universe offers a limitless number of playstyles, since your role is not defined by a character class, but by the choices you make.
Will you be a champion of battle, a lawless space pirate, a cargo hauler, or an industry magnate? The choice is yours in this brand new, unexplored world. But you’re not alone. Joining you on this journey are your fellow Noveans, all playing at the same time, in the same shared universe. Join forces and take control of the galaxy, or go to war with other organizations vying for the same. As you explore the far reaches of Dual Universe, you’ll either band together to rebuild a new world as you see fit, or watch it burn at your feet.
