The Player Character is the character that people will play as in Dual Universe. As sentient aliens will not be present, humans are the only character option. The character is the only virtual body which real-world players will control while playing Dual Universe. Within the game, the characters are all colonists sent on a mission to continue humanity away from a doomed Earth. They are virtually immortal, as resurrection nodes allow them to be reincarnated in the event that they die.
The character can be male or female, and currently four different colors of various parts of the suit are completely customizable. The player character is visible to other players within the game at any point in time, provided they are within line of site.
