MetaGods, a highly anticipated new MMORPG action game on the blockchain, is attracting some major attention with none other than major YouTube star Mr Beast… who was recently confirmed as an investor.
The hugely popular American content creator and philanthropist has been actively seeking out new cryptocurrency investments in the NFT gaming sector and recently secured an early stake in futuristic space RPG epic MetaWars.
MetaGods will be launching through a new initiative alongside Metawars in a historic collaboration as several of the same influential partners and investors are involved in both games, thus forming a formidable, first-of-its-kind partnership that is set to revolutionize the GameFi sector.
The blockchain play-to-earn model is revolutionizing the gaming market. Blockchain technology integration is quickly being recognized as the path forward, yet its implementation is complicated and requires a lot of planning and careful consideration.
The MetaWars and MetaGods teams, however, have taken the model further and come up with a genius cross-game launch concept that will strengthen the economies of both ecosystems, resulting in true metaverse integrations between the two exciting titles.
Mr Beast has quickly pounced on the opportunity to get behind this early. The content creator, amassing more than 80 million subscribers on Youtube, also runs his own popular gaming sub-channel and is an avid gamer himself.
MetaGods is the world’s first play-to-earn 8-bit action RPG built on the blockchain in which players can trade and play with generative NFTs to vanquish dangerous monsters.
In the hardcore level of the game, which offers the highest play-to-earn rewards, MetaGods increases the risk by introducing permadeath, meaning NFTs can be lost forever in battle if players are not prepared. The permadeath mechanic is the first of its kind in the gaming industry.
In the casual version of the game, passive income can be earned by staking $MGOD tokens to farm XP and $RELIC, which can then be used for in-game purchases and upgrades of assets such as weapons and armor. These assets are tradable and will have cross-chain compatibility, ensuring players are able to trade them on various networks.
The clever creators of MetaGods have also coined the term ‘Social GameFi’ to add to the MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing game) element of their grand vision. This will encourage a deep social element that will serve at the heart of the fun of playing the game with friends, in combination with the lucrative GameFi mechanics.
GameFi, or gamified finance, is quickly changing the way major stakeholders and investors find value in new games. Gamers can now earn financial profits by playing video games, and this is already shifting the industry into a new dimension.
Earning potential is particularly important for projects aiming to serve large communities who want a loyal base of users to utilize their tokens and engage with their products.
As a man who understands community and the importance of giving, it is no real surprise to see Mr Beast get behind MetaGods, one of the most promising titles this year that intends to maximize all of the capabilities of play-to-earn and GameFi to give its players a fun game that is rewarding to play.
The MetaGods team is moving at god-like pace, with marketing and development of the game happening simultaneously. The sheer amount of influencers already behind the project makes it almost a certainty to launch with very high numbers.
An early-access dungeons game will be released in Q4 of this year to add to the excitement soon after the project’s early December token launch, with further iterations of the full game coming in early 2022 and beyond.
