The global video game publisher – Ubisoft, continues to increase its presence in the growing industry of blockchain-based games. Today, the company announced the signing of a new consultancy partnership for the new game Nine Chronicles, from the producer Planetarium.
Ubisoft has been joined by a decentralized technology company – Hashed, which has also agreed to advise Planetarium.
Nine Chronicles – a decentralized MMORPG
Nine Chronicles is a block-based fantasy MMORPG game that uses decentralization in several unique ways. The game cannot be turned off or ended by the creator, unlike other MMOs, and the open API allows players to create both original content and outlets.
In fact, this is not the first Ubisoft and Planetarium meeting. The planetarium, in October last year, was selected as part of the Ubisoft Entrepreneurs Lab acceleration program, along with the publisher – the one behind such blockbuster positions as Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry – providing tips and study space for start-ups.
Now, however, Ubisoft, through partnership, has started official support in launching the new game.
“Ubisoft is always looking for new ideas to empower players, and Planetarium is paving the way for more creative freedom for the community. The open-source model, in combination with the open economy, will create new, interesting opportunities for players, and we will gladly see where this path will lead us. “
– said Nicolas Pouard, Blockchain director at Ubisoft.
Ubisoft and the blockchain industry
Ubisoft has been operating in the blockchain industry for some time. In addition to supporting many start-ups in the above-mentioned acceleration program, Ubisoft also cooperated with the gaming platform based on EOS – Ultra. Earlier, he also developed a prototype of a blockchain game inspired by Minecraft, called HashCraft.
Last month, Ubisoft released a series of blockchain-based digital collector items for the popular game and television franchise – Rabbids. The money collected from the sale of these tokens will be used to support UNICEF.
