Space game 0x10c to feature multiplayer and persistent online world

Minecraft creator Markus ‘Notch’ Persson has revealed his latest project.

Currently named 0x10c, the title will be an “ambitious” space game that will feature engineering, space battles, an economy system and landing on planets, as well as a multiplayer mode.

Persson said that game is still “extremely early in development”, but said that like Minecraft, he is looking to release the game early and let players help shape the game.

The new title’s payment structure has yet to be decided, but he said there is likely to be a monthly fee for those joining the Multiverse as it will feature a persistent world, although single player will not have any recurring fees.
