There will be only one shard for Dual Universe players when the game finally launches, and it’s going to be big. Heck, it’s going to be outright huge, and it’s going to be filled with stuff, and it’s avoiding loading screens. How does the game pull off all of those tricks at the same time? With technology, naturally! Technology that’s explained in a new video just below which shows off the game’s server structure, to be more specific.
The game will utilize a specific style of dynamic splitting between population centers, allowing players to coexist in high-density environments while also allowing the single shard to maintain cohesion. It’s rather technical stuff, but you can get the quick overview down below. Or you can just assume it’s some form of black magic; that works too.
