Beyond is a bubble universe focusing mainly on astronomical objects. After several years of development and several postponements, it was released on November 2, 2021.

Overview[]

Like the Mesozoic Valley, The Beyond is another bubble universe. It is focused on astronomical exploration. Similar to Mesozoic Valley, it is not affected by restarts of the main simulation and has its own currency and achievements (except for Darwinium). Its currency is Stardust.

The first phase of this expansion features the Sol system (our solar system). The developers at Computer Lunch have confirmed that the expansion will be released in multiple phases. While the initial phase will include celestial bodies such as planets and asteroids, later phases may cover topics like the history of humanity's initial studies of astronomy and journeys into space and explorations of how humans may expand their reach into the solar system in the near future.

It is unknown how the expansion will tie into the overarching story of the game and how it is related to Semblance's goals.

Production[]

While initially announced in 2018, research and early development on this expansion did not start in earnest until late 2019. The expansion's production was also adversely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, and the resulting shifts in workflow that were necessitated by changes such as Computer Lunch employees switching to a work-from-home model. The development and production of the Mammal Kingdom expansion, which took longer than anticipated, also contributed to the delay.

Computer Lunch's official roadmap, released at the end of 2020, places the release of the first phase of The Beyond in the first half of 2021, and indicates that the expansion will feature Astronomy, 3D Planets, and a new Solar System Garden. Later updates in the summer of 2021 indicated a possible release date in August or September.

In the first few months of 2021, Computer Lunch has also featured more information about the development of The Beyond in their monthly Twitch livestreams. A January post on the official Cell to Singularity subreddit gave players an update on the development team's progress and the possible content of the expansion, including some behind-the-scenes photos and screenshots of the in-production expansion.

Test Mode[]

The Beyond was released into the first rounds of closed beta testing. It will be released October 23, 2021. The initial private test was limited to a small number of players. In July, the Beyond entered open beta testing, with players able to opt in or to apply to join. The Beyond beta is available on Steam, Android, and iOS Testflight.

On November 2nd, 2021, The Beyond has released. On that day, a global event happened where players had to accelerate a solar system-like star 500,000,000 times.

The event was completed on November 3rd, 2021, enabling all players to access The Beyond.

Technology[]

There is currently one technology seen on the garden so far orbiting the sun. It is called the James Webb Space Telescope and cannot be bought or upgraded. It is also not seen on the Beyond tree. It is located in the Lagrange Point 2, where it is going to head to. Before the launch, because of its hard work, the developers decided to add them in. The telescope itself in real life has been built by NASA, ESA and CSA. On the recent livestream, the developers announced that there will be an event or minigame that they didn't tell us what it is like. There is a token or medallion if you participated in that event. It is currently continuing its journey to its destination, where we won't recieve photos for months until the instruments cool down. Once it is in the L2 point, we will recieve the first images of this telescope. On the info screen, it is available for 10 stardust but it isn't in tree.
