Dual Universe kicks off Alpha 2 test and goes zero-g gliding

Industry and fluffy clouds are all the rage in Dual Universe, as the upcoming sci-fi sandbox kicked off its Alpha 2 test today. Test pilots should also experience a significant change to how their ships handle in space with the advent of true weightlessness.

“We were quite happy with how ships translated differently in atmosphere and space, but we hoped to add an improved sensation of weightlessness,” the studio said. “And now itโ€™s done! Now when trying to manoeuver a ship while in the atmosphere, you should experience the true dragless feeling of space and the effects of air upon a shipโ€™s hull.”

Even better, the team added the ability for players to leave their ships and use a jetpack to do some fancy zero-g gliding in the void of space. At least you get brakes for when you get too out of control. Good luck recreating that opening scene to Gravity and getting hopelessly lost among the stars!

apparently this game has a lot of interguild drama/politics i learned this past week.

which is somewhat interesting because the game doesn’t have combat yet.

anyways hopefully they’ll start deploying combat iterations sooner than later.

Game sounds like minecraft meets eve online. Aka eve with voxals. There will be safe zones for carebears to build in and play safely and there will be lawless systems where player empires can develope and fight over rare resources that aren’t in the safe zone. Risk vs reward the forgotten balance of most games these days. You can purchase a contributor pack with alpha access for 60usd.
