PUBG creator Brendan Greene plans to launch a game powered by blockchain, NFTs, and the metaverse. The next game called Artemis will allow players to make and play anything they like in the Earth-sized virtual and open world environment. The evolving market of blockchain, metaverse, and NFTs picks pace as blockchain companies introduce gaming infrastructure.
Brendan Greene Plans Blockchain, Metaverse, NFTs-Based Artemis Game
PUBG creator Brendan Greene in an interview on September 27 said he plans to incorporate blockchain, metaverse, and non-fungible tokens (NFTs) to its Earth-sized virtual and open world game Artemis.
The blockchain-powered game will provide new opportunities and experiences to players and developers. Moreover, metaverse and NFTs will introduce interesting in-game features, items, and tokens, opening a new digital economy. Also, developers will create unique gaming experiences that were not possible before.
“We’re building a digital place. That has to have an economy, and it has to have systems at work. And I do believe you should be able to extract value from a digital place; it has to be like the internet, where you can do stuff that will earn you money.”
Artemis is not about money, but players and creators will have the opportunity to monetize their creations. The game engine will be open-source, allowing anyone to make changes to the game.
Meanwhile, platforms and developers like Steam and Ubisoft turned down blockchain games and NFT projects. Also, Minecraft banning the use of NFTs or blockchain has impacted the crypto and blockchain companies.
Rising NFT and Metaverse-Based Game
The NFT and metaverse companies continue to raise funds in billions amid rising interest from people and other entities. Recently, Walmart enters the metaverse with Roblox online gaming platform, introducing immersive experiences. Also, MyMetaverse and blockchain platform Enjin launched playable NFTs on the servers of renowned games Grand Theft Auto and Minecraft.
Also, Axie Infinity and The Sandbox platform have gained huge interest due to in-game NFTs, metaverse, and the ability to monetize and earn money. Companies like Animoca Brands continues to invest in Web3, metaverse, and NFT projects, especially for gaming purpose, to become a dominant entity in the market. The company continues to grow despite the crypto bear market.
