Dual Universe wants you to join the blue collar workforce
Flunked out of interstellar academy? Left your parents’ home on Mars at 17 and decided to make it on your own? Enjoy lugging stuff around or breaking things? Then you have a future in Dual Universe, thanks to an increased focus on space truckin’ and ore minin’.
Today’s big update to the pre-alpha program added a few new tools that allow players to scan for and mine that precious ore that can be found literally under your feet on the planets you visit. With the hand scanner, the directional tool, and the mining tool, you’ll be digging up your fortune in no time.
Once players get that ore, they’ll be helped out by the other features of this update, which are an improvement to the maneuverability of transport vehicles and the ability to easily transfer your goods to owned containers over a distance. You will need to be mindful of how much you’re carrying, as containers now have volume limitations.
