MORE DETAILS ABOUT THE GAMES
As you’ve noticed, most past projects are currently suffering a bear market, including the prominent NFT game Axie Infinity.
But despite its current drop, Epic Games continues to be optimistic about reviving the industry’s upside with its own games.
And to name those, let’s begin first with.
1. Project Red
Project Red is an open-world first-shooter game that centers around dealing with the lives of mafia groups.
The game offers a free-to-play experience for all players, featuring stunning AAA graphics, a deep storyline, and classic action-packed gameplay.
Moreover, players will also get an opportunity to get exclusive Mobster NFTs, which will unlock unique advantages and more opportunities in the game.
Next is Defimons, a multiplayer creature-collection adventure that incorporates RPG elements and turn-based battle gameplay.
Inspired by Pokemon, players can use their existing NFTs in the game by applying them as skins, characters, accessories, and many more.
Besides that, users can also get NFTs from the game and sell these assets in the marketplace for trading.
REMINISCING PAST PROJECTS
Before these recent build-outs, Epic Games already released their first NFT game, Blankos Block Party.
Many degens got excited before, but it received numerous backlash later on due to existing flaws in its gameplay.
Yet despite having negative reviews in its NFT game debut, the company took this as a drive to pursue the industry more.
HOW CAN THIS DEVELOPMENT BENEFIT BOTH SIDES?
We all know that fun is a significant factor that drives us to keep playing the game.
And these applications seek not only to give a fun experience but also act as mediums for traditional gamers to understand more about DeFi gaming and how it can contribute to the industry’s upside.
By doing this, the company can also expand its reach and further influence the idea of blockchain integration in future games to gain more opportunities.
On top of that, these games are also yet to release in the market, so think about what you can get of being early!
Epic Games has already established a name for itself as one of the leading video game companies in the industry.
But why expand to Defi and NFTs? As you know, more online players are migrating to Web3 for financial opportunities.
So to reclaim those userbase and acquire new ones, launching NFT games is an excellent way to start.
And to end, what do you think about this update?
