Development studio Novaquark has released the first alpha build for its space sandbox game Dual Universe. In the game players explore and build environments together.
Dual Universe takes inspiration from various titles, such as No Man's Sky, Minecraft and Space Engineers, to deliver a new sandbox experience set in outer space. Players can explore together and fully edit the environment by building structures and altering terrain.
The game advertises a multiplayer experience that ensures all players are connected to each other simultaneously in the same universe without the need for traditional player instancing as seen in other MMO games. The development studio calls this Continuous Single-Shard Cluster.
