Planets³ will not be a Massively Multiplayer Online game (MMO): in order to play in multiplayer mode, you will have to run a server of your own creating an universe, and invite your friends to join this universe.
PvP[edit | edit source]
In the first opus : Race to Space, the PvP mode will be all about fighting one another on the planets. There won't be any space battle, since this is a feature that could be introduced in the second opus Space Enemies. Along with space battles, Space Enemies will also make it possible for the player to control territories and to fight for them!
Coop[edit | edit source]
In the first opus, the focus will be on allowing players to progress in the story with friends. The progression of the players in the story will be stored on the server therefore when a player validates a quest it will be validated for everyone. If one of your friends joins your universe he will jump directly into the action.
Joining a universe for the first time creates a new character on the server. It won't be possible to connect to a universe with a character from another universe, thus ensuring the coherence of the universe.
