Virtual Reality ‘Battle Simulator’ opens Entropia Universe to all levels of Gamers
Gothenburg, Sweden - 2017-03-23 - A new Battle Simulator ‘time trial’ prototype is making Real-Cash Economy MMO Entropia Universe more widely accessible.
The Battle Simulator instance is a robot-infested solo time trial where gaining top positions on the leaderboard earns prizes worth hundreds — or even thousands — of dollars. Above all, the Battle Simulator is designed to be more ‘equal’ than regular Entropia Universe gameplay — all skills are standardized upon entry to ensure a level playing field. This is a bold move from developer MindArk, as building up an Avatar’s skill is a key part of traditional Entropia Universe gameplay.
“The Battle Simulator is intended to be different from our normal gameplay model. This is all about speed and tactics. Everyone competes on even ground — total newcomers as well as older players!” says MindArk CEO Klas Moreau.
Competition is a key part of the Battle Simulator, and there are plans aimed at developing a variety of unique eSport instances.

Players create avatars that can deposit and withdraw funds for their own ventures within Entropia Universe. MindArk created Entropia Universe in 1998 and is responsible for platform-wide development and the most established Planet: Planet Calypso.
MindArk is also the developers of the beast battle app game ComPet.
