Ubisoft is looking into Web3 technology. This is the company that made the popular Assassin’s Creed series. The Sandbox blockchain game now has Rabbids NFT avatars, which is one of its recent moves into the space. Ubisoft is one of the most well-known traditional video game companies that is trying out Web3 and has already made a few steps in that direction. In December 2021, Ubisoft became the first major video game publisher to release in-game NFTs with Ghost Recon Breakpoint, which received mixed feedback from fans. But the company is still committed to Web3 and has just released Rabbids NFT avatars for The Sandbox, a metaverse game built on Ethereum.
Ubisoft is offering 2,066 Rabbid avatars on Polygon, an Ethereum scaling network. The NFTs are priced at 100 SAND, equivalent to approximately $78 at current rates. This release is timed to coincide with the Lunar New Year, specifically the year of the rabbit in 2023. The Rabbids are in various styles, and buyers can view them in four different tiers on the Sandbox game website.
Planet IX is one of the most successful blockchain games in Web3 and it continues to grow by leaps and bounds. The game where players strive to revitalize a desolate planet, is expanding its range of options. The latest release, Cargo Drop 3, offers players even more possibilities for expanding their Mission Controls, as well as the addition of Rovers – autonomous vehicles that help players harvest tiles.
Cargo Drop 3 from Planet IX features a variety of NFTs and packs. Each Cargo Drop 3 pack includes a Rover, an Avatar Pack, and a Large Pack, providing players with plenty of new options to explore.
There are three types of Rovers in Planet IX, and they aid players in gathering resources, while also being capable of discovering M3ta-M0ds that help improve facilities. Avatars, on the other hand, are non-playable characters that provide in-game benefits and access to future airdrops and bonuses.
Furthermore, Cargo Drop 3 introduces the C-Tile contract, which offers players a third layer of hexes that are stakable around their Mission Control. Each Cargo pack is priced at $199, with a maximum of 100,000 Cargo Drop 3 mints available. Players can buy these packs on the official Cargo Drop 3 page.
Mini Royal is combining Web3 games and music by teaming up with Audius, a decentralized music streaming platform. With this collaboration, Mini-Royale players can now listen to Audius’ music streams while playing the game.
The partnership between Mini Royale and Audius is a cross-app, cross-chain collaboration that combines the worlds of streaming music and Web3 gaming. Through a built-in player on the Mini-Royale site, players can now stream tracks from the Audius platform while they play the game.
Two new minigames have been added to the pet-owning game Genopets, where players walk to earn rewards. These mini-games, called “Feed and Fetch,” are designed to help players keep their Genopets fed and happy. By doing so, players can achieve better Step to Energy conversion rates. In addition to these mini-games, Genopets has also added Food and Toy items to the game earlier this year. Players can receive a random selection of 3-6 items once a day when they convert their steps into energy. However, there are some changes expected on these mini-games in the upcoming Genopets update. Player feedback on losing inventory has ultimately made the developers rethink it.
This week, Gods Unchained opened its pre-alpha testing for the game’s mobile version. The gaming community is testing the game’s Android version and giving feedback to the developers on bugs and experiences.
The initial Gods Unchained mobile alpha test is available first to those on the elected Council of Mortals and those with Mount Olympus access, which is granted to players with large collections of GU cards. Access to the mobile pre-alpha for these players begins on February 24th, while others can join on February 28th. Anyone who played during February has a chance to receive an invitation.
Champions Ascension recently made a major accessibility improvement by eliminating the need for players to own a Web3 wallet in order to play the game. This comes after they made the pre-alpha free to play and got rid of the need for an invite code. Developers are continually striving to reduce the barriers to entry for web3 games, and many are finding ways to allow players to enjoy the game without the need for blockchain tokens or NFTs, while still providing access to these features for those who are interested. Champions Ascension is the latest game to join this movement.
Chainmonsters has announced that they will be transitioning from the Flow blockchain to Immutable X just before their official launch. The move was made to ensure that the game is set up in the most suitable space for its requirements, with players soon being able to mint NFTs from the game.
In a statement, the Chainmonsters team said that they were interested in Immutable X because it was always making and using new developer tools, like the Immutable Passport that was just released. These tools enable the team to focus more on developing the game and implementing updates than on technical aspects.
