Entropia Universe Launch Space MMORPG Developer MindArk Fulfils Visionary Milestone by Introducing Entropia Space to Encompass the Planets of Their Swiftly Evolving Virtual Universe
GOTHENBURG, Sweden, June 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
MindArk, creators of the fast growing MMORPG/Virtual 3D environment Entropia Universe, today announces the introduction of Entropia Space. This new addition is unique in the Game market as most Space games only provide space and spaceship environments. Entropia Universe, which was launched in 2003, started differently, with thousands of avatars interacting on the planets of the Universe. The enormous and diverse land areas of the various worlds will now be surrounded by a complete Space experience. Avatars will be able to walk around on the ships, land on planets and asteroids, and then disembark from their ships to explore strange, new worlds and trade with the inhabitants they meet.
The launch of Entropia Space, on June 21, includes new spacecrafts, new environments, space battles and new opportunities for entrepreneurs to put their skills and creativity to the test to earn money in the Real Cash Economy of Entropia Universe. New features will be implemented, as well. A new karma system will provide ranks and titles for the ships with a clear distinction between good and evil. Participants' choices will lead them toward one or the other; towards becoming a feared space pirate or towards being a steadfast vigilante.
"What we are doing is truly unique. The vision has always been to build a virtual universe which mimics the real universe and then extends it even further. Entropia Universe has seen great strides in development over the past several years, creating a peerless experience for participants," says Jan Welter Timkrans, founder and CEO of MindArk. "We have upgraded the graphics, introduced an advanced voice system created in partnership with Ericsson, released several new planets from 3rd party developers partnered in our "Planet Partner" program and now we are introducing Entropia Space - all connected with one, universal, Real Cash Economy. After years of hard work we are finally reaching this major milestone in bringing our vision to life. It is a great feeling!"
Entropia Space is set to provide a whole new level of diversity, game play, opportunity and fun to participants, both present and future. With four planets in the Entropia Universe and more on tap this year, MindArk is looking forward to further expansion and added dynamics of the universe.
