(Gothenburg, Sweden) — Project Entropia, a rapidly growing virtual world utilizing a real cash economy, today announces that they applied the 7.2 version update to the live servers.
“The 7.2 update is a key upgrade, as with it we supply thousands of homes for the Project Entropia participants. To have a secure place to call home is vital in the virtual experience”, Director of Concept Development Marco Behrmann says.
Some 2000 apartments were put up for sale on the Project Entropia auction in this phase, ranging from small, medium to large sized apartments. In a few hours time a third of these were sold, and just 24h after launch only some 30% of the stock remains in the auction.
The Project Entropia participants’ option to buy a home is a sought-after feature, especially as the cost for the apartments equals just $25, $35, and $45 respectively. Others have utilized their entrepreneurial skills and become estate brokers, seeking out attractive apartments with nice views and well-respected neighbors, and brokered these to other participants.
Other features in the 7.2 update include new cities, unique items and a horde of new object to be crafted and made. The full content list for the release can be found at http://www.project-entropia.com
