A new digital distribution platform for massively multiplayer online (MMO) video games, The Abyss, announced that they are now offering its partner developers licensing, maintenance and support for Unreal Engine 4 (UE4).
UE4 is a high-class toolset that brings real-time and high-fidelity experiences to games and applications across PC, console, mobile, VR and AR. We are talking about complete suite of development tools made for anyone working with real-time technology.
From enterprise applications and cinematic experiences to high-quality games across PC, console, mobile, VR and AR, Unreal Engine 4 gives its users everything they need to start, ship and grow.
Released by Epic Games in March 2014, UE4 today is one of the most widely used engines for commercial game development. Developers on The Abyss platform will enjoy favorable terms for use of UE4 technology, including access to the Unreal Developer Network (UDN), free maintenance and technical support.
The Abyss also promised to provide marketing support for new UE4-based games, helping devs to attract early adopters, while already released games will be offered extra traffic.
Mike Gamble, Head of Games Licensing EMEA, Epic Games said:
“We’re delighted that The Abyss has chosen to provide additional resources to Unreal Engine developers and publishers on its platform. UE4 scales to hundreds of millions of players, and access to premier support and connections with the global community can be critical to success of large-scale games with live operations.”
Konstantin Boyko-Romanovsky, Founder of The Abyss added:
“We are launching this powerful program to deliver a number of services and tools that will help and inspire UE4 developers to produce even more high-quality games. We strongly believe our model is the future of gaming and digital distribution and we’re delighted to welcome new Unreal Engine benefits to our platform.”
The Abyss platform focusing on MMO/MMORPG games was officially launched in March 2019, soon followed by Desktop App for Windows OS release.
ABYSS Tokens and How To Get It
The project’s key feature is a multilevel referral program that provides an additional revenue stream and allows developers to earn from each transaction made by their referrals, even if they pay in other games.
Through their 5-level referral program users can get free ABYSS tokens, platform-specific digital currency easily exchangeable with money. They can also use ABYSS to buy new games and make in-game purchases.
Users can start their own referral network by sharing the unique referral link with their friends. Each new gamer emerging on The Abyss using your link becomes your 1-level referral. Your network may increase from 1 to 5 levels if more gamers are brought in.
From the company, they said that the referral program can serve as an additional source of income during an extended time period and users can get a 1-4% share in ABYSS tokens from each referral transaction.
Users can also obtain ABYSS tokens with their credit card using one of the supported services, like Changelly, Change Now and/or ChangeHero. They can also buy ABYSS from any of the exchanges they’re currently listed on. Find the list of the available exchanges here.
At the time of writing current market capitalization of Abyss token was $2,362,628 and it was surging quickly – 16,29% to $0.010395.
