The Novaquark team updated their routes for Dual universe with details about the upcoming Athena update. The update is named Athena because space warfare is being introduced layer by layer.
Athena will bring in core alien units that will start appearing in PVP zones. These units will act like space mining and resource generation points. They will also be ready to take. Players and organizations can work and claim these points and receive the resources they produce. However, the alien core units must be protected, so don’t get too distracted by mining your bounty once you’ve captured them.
The alien core units will also provide new PVP challenges for those who want them, and it will also take the pressure off players who don’t want to be in PVP. Having these new points should help alleviate some of the temper of players who leave the safe zone and don’t necessarily just want to continue being ambushed by pirates and have their day ruined.
Also included in the update is the space marketplace and the completely revamped first-time user experience (FTUE). Dual universe didn’t last as long as some other titles that recently overhauled their entire new player experience, but these changes are meant to provide options for different play styles. The update is here in Dual universe aims to be easier to understand and leave players with a solid foundation of what they need to succeed. Updating new player content as many have done only makes sense if you want to establish your community to grow and participate in.
The Athena update is scheduled for late spring, but the team also plans to release a smaller update ahead of Athena that will address quality-of-life improvements such as new planet image enhancements, Additional voxel builder and new jetpack behaviour.
