Dual Universe PvP Gameplay Teaser
Novaquark, the indie studio behind the scf-fi MMO Dual Universe, showcased some of the first PvP action from the game. All of this is seen in the new PvP gameplay teaser trailer that features never-before-seen footage.
The trailer emphasizes how PvP within Dual Universe requires both brains and brawn to survive. From ship construction to familiarity with ship maneuverability will be necessary to outplay and overtake foes. Battles feature the lock and fire gameplay mechanic and can feature tiny skirmishes to all out large scale warfare.
With Dual Universe’s PvP, we have tried to do something really unique and innovative, leveraging the potential of our voxel engine, and first-person immersion inside potentially very large ships. Fans will have to rely on both their design and combat skill in order to stake a claim for themselves in battle. It’s all about strategy and planning, teamwork and coordination, just like real life, large-scale naval battles.Jean-Christophe Baillie, CEO Novaquark
Dual Universe’s beta is expected to launch later in 2020 with the full game arriving in 2021. Players interested in the game or wish to join in the Alpha stage can find more information on the Dual Universe website at dualthegame.com, follow @dualuniverse on Twitter or join the official Dual Universe Discord.

Pixelatto, who released their retro 2D puzzle platformer adventure title Reventure in June 2019 is celebrating the one year release with a F2P Android version.
The game features a unique and innovative approach in a choose your own adventure styled platformer with nonlinear mechanics. Players start the game by taking on the role of a hero and the princess is in danger who must be saved.
