Gothenburg, Sweden — On September 28, Planet Calypso AB, developer and publisher of Planet Calypso, sci-fi MMO based in the Entropia Universe, announced that new players now have easier access to the game. Calypso’s improved Gateway gives beginning colonists a dedicated location in which to start out, get missions and learn about the gameplay and economics of the game in a safe environment.
Planet Calypso is known for its real-cash economy, sci-fi backstory, lush visuals and a very steep learning curve. Enter Calypso Gateway, the innovative starting point for newcomers. With this new update, the area now features a simpler linear layout. It also contains significantly more information about the gameplay of Planet Calypso and Entropia Universe. The “New Colonist Experience” even includes free items and skills to get new players going with weapons, ammo, armor and even a vehicle.
The Calypso Gateway is on its own island allowing players a safe place to get to know the planet and Entropia Universe. It is the first point-of-contact with the game, after the avatar creation process. Calypso Gateway features unique introductory missions to orient new players and make sure they have vital equipment.
Newcomers will be able to engage in hunting, mining and crafting, using the equipment given. The tutorial-like mission structure allows players to learn about Calypso, the Real Cash Economy model and the way the basic features work.
Planet Calypso is the oldest of the planets in the Entropia Universe, with over one million registered accounts and over $400 million USD per year in user-to-user transactions. As part of the largest real economy game in the world players have the ability to participate in a science-fiction MMO where they have no monthly costs.
Instead players have the ability to deposit real funds for their adventures on Calypso, or withdraw funds at any time for use in the real world. Planet Calypso is a free download available at the game’s official website.
