Introducing: Creature Control System.

It is now possible to take the role of a ferocious creature and start hunting other avatars!
So how do you do this?
By consuming a Creature Control Capsule you can transform into a creature and gain it’s abilities, this will lock most of your regular actions and instead open up a new Creature Control Interface.
While in creature form you can harm other avatars even in safe zones, but they can also harm you.
The duration of the transformation is controlled by a timer, however it is possible to extend the time using the "Add time" feature.

Additional information:


  • Creature Controlled Capsules can be found in creature loot.
  • While in creature form you are anonymous, i.e. other avatars can not see your Avatar identity
  • Planet specific creature capsules can only be used on corresponding planets.
  • Dying in creature form will end the transformation and send you to nearest revive terminal.
  • You cannot swim and will drown while in creature form, but you are free of fall damage.
  • Creatures need clear open area to be able to spawn, bigger the creature, bigger area.
  • Defense turrets can not harm you in creature form.
  • A new Hall of Fame section has been added to cover the top Creature Control players.
  • When dying as a creature the avatar will be transported to closest revive terminal

MindArk and the Planet Partners strive to ensure a smooth and problem-free Version Update. Nevertheless, even after extensive testing some issues may arise after release. Such issues are often addressed via mini-patches directly after a release and in subsequent patches. If you feel that the possibility of encountering minor issues or bugs directly after a Version Update affects your gameplay to an extent that Entropia Universe is not enjoyable, please wait until the mini-patches have been released and any last minute issues have been resolved.
