See the first footage of Dual Universe, the single-shard sci-fi MMO

At the PC Gaming Show during E3 2016, Novaquark's Jean-Christophe Baillie showed off the first-ever video footage of Dual Universe, the upcoming sci-fi MMO that takes place in a persistent, shared, single-shard universe. Take a look at the above footage.

In the video, you can see the finishing touches being put on a spacecraft with Dual Universe's crafting and building system, after which the astronaut climbs in and blasts off, taking a tour from one planet to another. The take-off, flight through space, and landing all happen seamlessly. This is in-game footage taken from Dual Universe's pre-alpha.

Novaquark is hoping to have a playable alpha in early 2017. You can visit Dual Universe's official site for more information, and check out some screenshots below.

Chris started playing PC games in the 1980s, started writing about them in the early 2000s, and (finally) started getting paid to write about them in the late 2000s. Following a few years as a regular freelancer, PC Gamer hired him in 2014, probably so he'd stop emailing them asking for more work. Chris has a love-hate relationship with survival games and an unhealthy fascination with the inner lives of NPCs. He's also a fan of offbeat simulation games, mods, and ignoring storylines in RPGs so he can make up his own.
