Gothenburg, Sweden - April 16, 2013 /Entropia Universe/ - Entropia Universe AB, the largest Massively Multiplayer Online Real Cash Economy (or MMORCE) game, announced today that the famous $70,000 virtual Atrox Queen dinosaur egg is hatching.  The egg had lain dormant for over 6 years, and been sold numerous times, what comes out though will be worth the wait. 

As scientists in the game attempted to open the egg they were attacked by the RX robotic units, invaders that have plagued the world before, and allowed the newborn creature to escape.  This new creature, a Feffox, has begun causing havoc on the planet, destroying cities and wildlife alike.  Players will need to go into the Feffox nests to gather specimens and create a toxin to stop the spread of this deadly beast.  Once the toxin is released the players will have to come together one last time for a massive battle to save the world. 

During this Spring event players will find special creatures and loot spawning on Planet Calypso.  There will also be special PVP events with MindArk personnel, a hunting competition, and new areas will be introduced along with a huge new robot unit that will require team coordination to take down.  There will even be various and hunting, mining and crafting events to keep everyone entertained as the new storyline unfolds.
