French indie studio Novaquark announced Dual Universe, a massively multiplayer online game that will be the first of its kind.
There hasn't been too much in the way of information that has been released. Fortunately, Founder & Creative Director Jean-Christophe Baillie has come forth to talk Dual Universe and what it entails.
In a report by WCCFTech, we learn about how Baillie plans to handle servers for the MMO and the players that will inhabit its world. When asked about how servers will work, Baillie responded with the hope that every consumer would be able to join the same server.
"For us, it's about getting back to the root of what it means to be an MMO, with one giant world where everybody is at the same time. There's no different instances, no different server: the concept is called single shard, EVE Online does that but that game has different zones, you also can't get into zones if there's a certain number of people in it. We are one step beyond that, with what we call continuous single shard. We can have tens of thousands of people in the same place."
