From the website:
A PERSISTENT SINGLE-SERVER UNIVERSE, ENTIRELY BUILT AND DRIVEN BY PLAYERS
No loading, no server instantiation, no tricks. All players share the same persistent universe, at the same time. Dual Universe is the first Metaverse: a common, shared virtual world, controlled by the players.
BUILD ALMOST ANYTHING
Voxel-based, fully editable universe.
Create entire cities, giant space stations, massive warships,
underground bunkers or… flying cars!
Mine. Craft. Build and optimize production factories.
Then barter or trade your creations, or those from others.
A shared universe means a single, global economy - run by players.
From pirate raids to skirmishes to coordinated attacks: space is a dangerous place. With real-time destruction, battleship crews and player-designed ships, this is PvP like no other. Don’t want PvP? Stick to Safe zones and you’ll be fine.
NO CHARACTER CLASS.
NO PREDETERMINED ROLE.
The role you play in the shared universe only depends on your actions and your choices. Be a space pirate. A galactic trader. A cargo hauler. An interstellar industrialist. And everything in-between.
