GOTHENBURG, SWEDEN – Feb. 19, 2019As long-running living, breathing virtual multi-world MMO game Entropia Universe celebrates 16 years, the game’s developers are unveiling significant gameplay updates today to deliver an updated experience that will make exploring, looting and battling enemies even easier. The free update offers a streamlined experience while at the same time knocking down barriers for new players exploring many of Entropia Universe’s six diverse virtual planets.

 

Existing players will immediately notice all-new aiming controls, allowing them to quickly lock on enemy targets, and swap between camera perspectives with one click of a button.

 

“Much has changed in the last 16 years, but Entropia Universe continues to grow and evolve, and the MindArk team remains committed to keeping the gameplay experience familiar yet fresh,” said Dennis Antonsson, project lead, MindArk. “Long-time players will notice an immediate difference as they switch camera views, toggle their aim and more efficiently interact with the world of Entropia Universe.”

 

The Entropia Universe Version 16.0 Update includes:

  • Revamped Aiming – Players can now lock onto targets and quickly cycle through new ones, allowing for total control to defeat waves of enemies much more easily;
  • Camera Transitions – Going from first-person to third-person is now possible, with an all-new toggle option;
  • Full Interactions – Right-clicking is dead! No more working through menus to enter vehicles or to pick up items as players can simply interact with objects with one key.

Players can also check out video tutorials for the updated controls through the following YouTube links:

 

ABOUT ENTROPIA UNIVERSE

Entropia Universe is a living, breathing virtual multi-world online game where players can escape and create their own reality, choosing their own path and transforming themselves into whoever they want to be. First launched in 2003, Entropia Universe has continuously raised the bar for online virtual societies by introducing players to real-cash currency, limitless job possibilities, and a full-on item investment platform. Players collect and earn virtual currency (‘Project Entropia Dollars’ or ‘PED’) within the game and are able to convert this cash to and from their real-world bank accounts. Since launch, five other developers through the Entropia Planet Partners program have created additional planets, each with their own unique attributes and systems.
