Calypso Gateway is the place on Planet Calypso where all new arrivals begin the game after leaving Genesis. It was introduced in Version Update 11.2.2 / Content Release 2010.3. Calypso Gateway was open house for 1 week after its launch to gives all existing Entropia Universe players the chance to experience the area. Now the only way to access Calypso Gateway is creating a new account and finishing the avatar creation session. The only way to leave Calypso Gateway is by the Teleporter which features only two directions: Port Atlantis and Treasure Island (Since there is no way to return to Calypso Gateway it is highly recommended to finish all the missions at Calypso Gateway before leaving).
Calypso Gateway Guide
If you get tired take a break near the cars that showcase some of the fine transportation Calypso has to offer.(-> Vehicles)
Any questions? Can't get that blueprint to work right? Ask one of the advisers (ya I know that may not be how you spell it but there are many languages and cultures here and that is how the gateway advisers were asked to spell it)
You can see us there often dressed in blue answering your questions. Here is one of the more famous of the advisers that I managed to get a picture of.
Head off to Port Atlantis and when you are there you might just see an adviser there too, only on the planet we use are regular avatars and have our regular names. When we are working we are dressed in the same blue you will see us in at the gateway. Oooh look it is Zar again.
Recently the Community Advisor Program has been set up. Community Advisors are a group of veteran Entropia Universe players dedicated to helping new players.

The Community Advisors are:

| Planet Calypso Builds Area for New Players
Calypso Gateway gives beginning colonists a place to call home GOTEBORG, Sweden, July 7 /PRNewswire/ -- First Planet Company, developer and publisher of the largest real cash economy MMORPG, announced today a revolution in the way new players can access Planet Calypso. Calypso Gateway gives beginning colonists a...
| dedicated location to start out, get missions and learn about the game all in a safe environment.
Planet Calypso is known for its real-cash economy, grand scope, lush visuals and a very steep learning curve. Enter Calypso Gateway, the new content release from First Planet Company, which features an innovative starting point for newcomers. For many years those arriving on Calypso have started their new life on the busy streets of Port Atlantis, left with nothing but their bare hands and an orange jumpsuit. They have had a world of possibility to explore but at the same time the experience can prove daunting and overpowering. This new addition to Calypso changes all of that.
The Calypso Gateway is a secluded area consisting of an arrival terminal located on an island. It is the first point-of-contact with the game, after the avatar creation process. Calypso Gateway features several introduction missions to orient new players and make sure they have vital equipment. Newcomers will be able to engage in hunting, mining and crafting, using the equipment given. The tutorial-like mission structure allows players to learn about Calypso, the Real Cash Economy model and the way the basic features work. The Gateway is a place where newcomers can interact and learn, without many of the distractions found elsewhere on Calypso, as the area is off-limits for all other colonists. Once players take the one-way teleporter to go to mainland Calypso they can never go back.
First Planet Company is the developer and publisher of Planet Calypso, the largest real economy Massively Multiplayer Online Game in the world. Players have the ability to participate in a unique virtual world where they have no monthly costs. Its innovative real money economy uses a virtual currency which has a fixed exchange rate with the US dollar. This allows players to deposit and withdraw real funds for their adventures on Calypso or in the real world. It is also the first MMORPG to use CryTek's stunning CryENGINE 2 for amazing graphics and physics. Planet Calypso is the oldest planet in the Entropia Universe and is free to download.
Planet Calypso is a free download available at the game's website, www.planetcalypso.com.
