The gaming sector could see the blockchain gaining traction slowly and steadily. In a significant step, non-fungible tokens (NFTs) would pave the way for the usage of the distributed ledger technology (DLT) into the PlayStation 4. This was due to Plague Hunters being a single-player-focused and turn-based tactic RPG along with certain elements of PvP apart from the continuation to the Plague Road, a hand painted 2D art game which was regarded as successful.
In a Reddit, Louisoneth said that a game developer, Arcade Distillery, is getting ready to introduce a fresh game for the Sony’s Play Station 4. Incidentally, the developer was responsible for creating titles such as Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PS Vita. The new attempt will have ethereum blockchain as its platform. The game would not only be a free-to-play but also have features like a marketplace for peer to peer transactions and passed the review process of the Japanese firm.
The new feature has also passed every term and condition of Sony’s PlayStation through the DLT has a number of elements of blockchain technology. Significantly, this is the first time that any DLT game is ready to accomplish this feat. Another interesting aspect is that blockchain games looked like Plague Hunter’s in-game assets. This included weapons, units, and any other items that would be pegged to NFTs.
Army of Hunters
The website of Arcade Distillery has described Plague Hunters as creating an army of hunters. “Train them and prepare them or battle.” Also, one can trade hunters with other players on the DLT-based marketplace. The new game will be released in the first quarter of next year as the development of PC and Nintendo Switch versions are currently going on. Aside from that, the company is keen to explore Xbox One and mobile as options for an additional platform.
A Redditor, Pewter_Pawn said,
“I believe all (almost) blockchain projects is good for adoption. I guess the point is that a lot of people do not see or think they could coexist together in this sphere, as they “steal” users from another, which further is determined by the valuation of the coins.”
Another Redditor hope that this will provide another run for ethereum.
