This week Entropia Universe Expanded the platform to include Space gameplay, exploration,? PVP Space Warfare, interstellar commerce and travel between Virtual Worlds created by independent developers.

“Revenge is Sweet when it comes in the form of a Space Pirate Ship” Said NEVERDIE?“ Like most kids I dreamed of having my own Space Ship and when you pay $9,000 for a Virtual Spacecraft it makes it very real, especially when the Plunder in Space has a real cash Value and can be worth tens of thousands of US dollars and when the Damage you take after a battle costs you Real money to Repair.? With my new Pirate ship I’m especially excited to engage the legion of NEVERDIE Haters in a way other celebrities can only dream about; I plan to kick their Virtual asses!”

Motherships, are the Titans of Space with awesome firepower and transportation capabilities. Players can choose between a variety of ships ranging in price from a few dollars to many thousands, ships can be configured for basic usage or adjusted into fearsome war machines that earn a reputation with each kill.
