GameSpot can exclusively reveal that Novaquark’s sci-fi MMO Dual Universe will get an Epic Games Store beta on August 27. You can head over to the game’s official website to sign-up for the beta; it’s worth pointing out that right now, Dual Universe is alpha testing, with players able to join simply by purchasing a key for $60, $120, or $180.
Pledging money to Dual Universe at one of the three specified prices nets you a variety of goodies ranging from guaranteed alpha and beta access with multiple keys (depending on tier), pets, in-game items such as outfits, and more. You can check out a new trailer below.
Alongside announcing the EGS beta that will take place this August, Novaquark shared a cinematic trailer for Dual Universe. The trailer, below, details the game’s lore. You play as a pioneer lucky enough to be drafted to restart humanity after Earth was deemed inhospitable and destroyed by a neutron star. Now you go around fulfilling the Rebirth Project, an effort to rebuild human civilization in a new solar system.
The studio also shared a series of official Dual Universe screenshots, showing off the Earth from orbit, various facilities and space stations, ships flying through the cosmos, and more. Check them out below.
Additionally, since Dual Universe is a sandbox that allows you to build your own environments and facilities, Novaquark provided a look at what communities can build within Dual Universe. Check them out below.
