Around a month after Novaquark announced the full release of Dual Universe on September 27, the devs have released a Free Trial Server on Steam for any new players not sold on the game just yet. Supposedly, the server has "no limitations" and is an "exact copy of retail Dual Universe," but the catch is that it will regularly reset.
The Free Trial Server runs separately from the primary server for paying players. The server also has a few key differences: gameplay is accelerated, markets have items with reduced prices, and elements are way more affordable to try any aspect of the game. But accounts will be regularly deleted, restarting the server from scratch periodically. Novaquark stated they will send a notice to players logging in about the next reset date, but the "frequency of these server resets is yet to be finalized."
Another trade-off is that once players purchase a subscription on their Novaquark account, the Free Trial Server will no longer be accessible on that account. However, the devs assured players that they could make a new one since their Steam account is separate from the log-in client. No matter how you want to try Dual Universe, it doesn't hurt to get a sense of the game during the Free Trial Server before committing to the title.
