'Planet Calypso' Adds An Area For New Players To Explore

Entropia Universe is the largest Real Cash Economy Massively Multiplayer Online Game in the world, offering players the ability to participate in a unique virtual world where they have no monthly costs.

Planet Calypso is the largest real economy Massively Multiplayer Online Game in the world. Players have the ability to participate in a unique virtual world where they only pay for the game when they play. Its innovative real money economy uses a virtual currency which has a fixed exchange rate with the US dollar. This allows players to deposit and withdraw real funds for their adventures on Calypso or in the real world.   It is also the first MMORPG to use CryTek's stunning CryENGINE 2 for amazing graphics and physics.  Planet Calypso is the oldest planet in the Entropia Universe and is free to download.

Enter Calypso Gateway, the new content release from First Planet Company, which features an innovative starting point for newcomers. For many years those arriving on Calypso have started their new life on the busy streets of Port Atlantis, left with nothing but their bare hands and an orange jumpsuit. They have had a world of possibility to explore but at the same time the experience can prove daunting and overpowering. This new addition to Calypso  changes all of that.

The Calypso Gateway is a secluded area consisting of an arrival terminal located on an island. It is the first point-of-contact with the game, after the avatar creation process. Calypso Gateway features several introduction 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. The Gateway is a place where newcomers can interact and learn, without many of the distractions found elsewhere on Calypso, as the area is off-limits for all other colonists. Once players take the one-way teleporter to go to mainland Calypso they can never go back.
