|| FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE || Darmstadt, Germany || December 4, 2020 ||
We have liftoff! A new fleet of ships awaits you in your ever-expanding quest to conquer the unknown. Spaceship blueprints allow you to customize your ships to your liking, whether they be lightning fast or large enough to haul several metric tons of precious materials.
On December 7th, space economy MMO Prosperous Universe (https://prosperousuniverse.com/) will launch a sizeable content update that introduces ship building. Players will be able to construct and customize their own spaceships for ferrying supplies. The release of ‘Ignition’ also signifies the end of First Access and the beginning of the Early Access phase and a switch to a subscription model.
‘Ignition is the newest in a series of content updates encouraging players to spread out into the far reaches of space and establish new colonies. A “Damage Model” will also be introduced as players must take into account micrometeoroids, atmospheric heat, gravity, and radiation as their ships travel through space.
Thousands of players have signed up since Prosperous Universe released its first public version in December of 2018. The game went free-to-play in 2019, staying true to its promise of avoiding microtransactions completely. The so-called “First Access” phase will end in 2020 and Early Access will begin at the start of 2021; once the game fully launches, its universe will become persistent.
