Developer CCP has launched their Singularity test server for both of their titles, EVE Online and DUST 514. These two titles share a universe, and despite being different in scope and genre and platform, players from either game can communicate with one another across a common in-game chat and mail system.
EVE dev Habakuk posted this announcement on the EVE forums, noting the following caveats:
- The current code on Singularity is older than the code on TQ - some stuff will be broken, which is already fixed on TQ (for example the tutorials). The latest balancing changes are also missing on Singularity
- Only very basic interaction is possible with Dust players in this version
- We know of several issues, which are already resolved in our internal development version.
- We might restrict the server again with no warning if we find any critical issues.
Beta events will continue to run throughout the summer on alternate weekends.
