Over the past two years, we’ve been lightly tracking the development of Virtuverse, an episodic online sci-fi RPG with a curious business model, and now it looks as though the wider public is going to get to see it first-hand come this fall.
The game’s Early Access 4 test is coming soon, with a backer test running from September 18th through the 21st and a public test scheduled from October 16th through the 23rd. This test will show off Virtuverse’s updated crafting, an overhauled procedural dungeon system, the new Temrance Island, and player housing. The full patch notes are up so that you can see just how massive a change this will be for the game.
Virtuaverse bills itself as an “MMO with a difference,” offering multiple worlds, user-created content, no class restrictions, and a special focus on the economy. “Virtuverse’s circular economy focuses on recycling materials and resources between professions, giving every player a niche to fill.”
