GTA and CoD Veterans Collaborate with Immutable
The Web3 gaming ecosystem Immutable has partnered with Random Games, a studio founded by veteran developers from renowned franchises like Grand Theft Auto and Call of Duty. This collaboration centers around Unioverse, a Web3 sci-fi franchise that spans various mediums.
Random Games aims to create a platform that provides high-quality assets for game creation without any royalty fees. The Unioverse community will be incentivized to produce their own stories, games, and content using these official assets.
Unioverse aims to foster a continuous stream of professional and user-generated content, thanks to its royalty-free nature. Users can monetize their creations by selling merchandise such as comic books, t-shirts, and lunchboxes, and they get to keep all the profits.
Immutable will provide the blockchain platform, tools, and services for Unioverse, allowing Random Games to focus on creating an exceptional game without becoming blockchain experts themselves.
Brawlers by Magic: The Gathering Creator Launching on Epic Games Store
Brawlers, a player-versus-player (PvP) blockchain card game, is set to be released on the popular Epic Games Store. This game is the debut title of Tyranno Studios, the in-house game development team for the WAX blockchain.
Brawlers, designed by Richard Garfield, the creator of Magic: The Gathering, revolves around the pro-wrestling theme. Players compete in wrestling matches and earn BRWL tokens, which can be used to craft or purchase in-game content. All in-game items, including the Brawlers themselves, are non-fungible tokens (NFTs) that can be traded, sold, or gifted among players.
Releasing a blockchain game on the Epic Games Store opens up the opportunity for Web3 companies to reach a massive mainstream audience. WAX Chief Gaming Officer Michael Rubinelli sees this as a significant step toward the mass adoption of Web3.
Over $2 Billion Invested in Blockchain Gaming in 2023
Despite the bear market, blockchain gaming investments have surged in the third quarter of 2023, reaching a total of $2.3 billion for the year so far. This represents a considerable increase of $600 million compared to the previous quarter, highlighting the growing interest and confidence in the industry.
Major Web2 gaming companies are making notable strides into the Web3 realm, with Zynga’s Sugartown IP gaining instant adoption and high praise from the Web3 community. Daily unique active wallets (UAWs) also saw a 12% increase compared to the previous quarter, indicating the growing engagement and participation in blockchain games.
Upland Introduces Trading of Spark Token on Ethereum
The metaverse platform Upland has received approval from its community to allow trading of its in-game utility token, Spark, on the Ethereum blockchain. This transition, known as the Sparklet white paper, aims to offer Upland users tradability while maintaining mechanisms to protect the game’s economy from unwanted externalities.
The Sparklet token will be minted on Ethereum, mirroring the finite supply of 1,000,000,000 Sparklet tokens. Upland will also mint 1,000,000 Spark on the EOS blockchain, ensuring a balanced ownership structure across both platforms.
Hot Take: Guild of Guardians
Guild of Guardians is an upcoming mobile rogue-lite squad RPG developed by Mineloader and published by Immutable. The game offers core dungeon battles, crafting loops, quests, and level-up options, with decent graphics and immersive music and sound effects.
In Guild of Guardians, players assemble teams of heroes and venture into dungeons for combat. The game emphasizes factional, elemental, and class synergies when building teams, offering strategic gameplay. However, the challenge lies in providing originality and uniqueness in a market saturated with similar fantasy-themed mobile games.
