Sci-Fi Sandbox MMORPG Dual Universe Launching Next Month

French game developer Novaquark has announced that ambitious subscription-based sci-fi MMORPG Dual Universe will be released on September 27 on PC via Steam.

Nouredine Abboud, CEO of Novaquark, said in a statement:

Since the launch of the Dual Universe beta two years ago, our dedicated community of explorers, raiders, miners and Novean pioneers have created incredible stories in towering cities, underground bases and orbiting space stations. . We are extremely grateful to everyone who has embarked on this journey with us thus far and we are thrilled to open this new chapter of the game’s incredible journey thus far.

Cyrille Fontaine, Creative Director at Novaquark, adds:

The upcoming Dual Universe launch offers players the opportunity to relive the excitement of once again discovering the massive planets of Helios alongside new and familiar faces. With the many additions and improvements we added during the beta, we know the game has a solid foundation to deliver an experience like no other that we can continue to build on.

Dual Universe was unveiled six years ago as the first unlimited MMORPG. After a few months, I interviewed Novaquark founder Jean-Christophe Baillie (who has since left the company) about the Dual Universe feature set (which entered beta two years ago) . Check out a detailed overview below.
