Novaquark’s Dual Universe may still be in alpha testing, but the sci-fi title took one giant leap forward this month in becoming a full-fledged MMO.
This is thanks to May’s r0.15 update, which defied its unassuming name to introduce a host of much-needed features to the game. A barter system will help to encourage a thriving economy, while the talent system will allow players so specialize in various professions through a time-based progression model.
There’s plenty more with this patch, as well. Graphical improvements, an inspection window, a “missed notifications” tab, the ability to unlock the mouse, the ability to place voxels with arrow keys, and an inventory revamp are all part of the fun. Check out the patch trailer after the break!
