SUPERNOVAE team, creators of MegaCryptoPolis, implementing their broad expertise from the development of the famous decentralized city builder game, publishes the Star Map update, their first major release on the new project – the space-themed DeFi powered MMO strategy called Farsite.
Strictly following the roadmap available on the official website, Farsite launches Star Map – an interactive space navigation tool. It enables players to browse the explored parts of the Farsite Universe – Constellations, Stars, Planets revolving around them, as well as Sectors on said Planets. The Sectors are vital for building a planetary base to extract resources, craft ships, components, modules, and ammunition.
First announced in late December 2020, Farsite has successfully conducted an early pre-order, offering 1000 limited First Edition Crates, containing cNFT Ships and other valuable in-game items. The Crates were sold out within hours, accumulating nearly $400,000 worth of ETH. There also were 50 exclusive ships issued in Collaboration with CoinDesk for the attendees of the 2021 Consensus online event, Farsite x Coindesk Ship was the first NFT item to run out of stock.
Farsite has attracted lots of attention and already gained an army of fans – more than 500,000 registered players are keeping their eyes on the development process, impatiently waiting to set their feet on board their unique Spaceships – every ship is created with a different combination of textures, colors, and lights. Some Ships are selling on NFT marketplaces for more than 1 ETH, compared to ~0.1 ETH price of the Crate they were obtained from.
Professing an easy-to-onboard approach, the SUPERNOVAE team is building the first blockchain game for millions, not only crypto-savvy enthusiasts. Thanks to the cNFTs and an open market, Farsite is yet to become a new phenomenon on the strategy game scene.
