Web3 entertainment and video game company Creta showcased gameplay footage of its upcoming blockchain title, Kingdom Under Fire: The Rise, at Creta Summit 2022. In addition, Creta displayed the progress it has made with its metaverse gaming ecosystem.
Create focuses on developing Web3 gaming experiences involving blockchain games and metaverse experiences. The company is un by the creators of the Kingdom Under Fire franchise. Japanese game developer, Yoshiki Okamoto, is a Creta strategic partner and investor. He is known for his work on titles like Dragon Hunter, Street Fighter II and Time Pilot, joined the company as a strategic partner and investor in late 2022.
During the Summit, Creta Chief Creative Officer Ray Nakazato was asked how the game will utilize blockchain.
“Some characters and items acquired during gameplay will be turned into NFTs and can be traded or bought. But to protect the game economy from devaluation and maintain a subtle balance, regular in-game item classes will be exempt from such transactions,” Nakazato stated. “The game will be playable in seasons, and data will reset at the end of each season with an opportunity to transfer player NFTs to a new season”.
The gameplay footage also gave attendees a sneak peek at Kingdom Under Fire: The Rise’s NFT avatar system. Additionally, Creta announced three other blockchain titles which are currently in development. Few details are available other than the games’ titles—Tokyo War Hana and Sakura, Warhands and Fortress.
The company is making progress on its gaming platform, which will host Creta’s blockchain titles upon release. According to a press release, the metaverse layer of the gaming ecosystem will add extra socialization features “for users craving extra fun and extended NFTs utilization.”
The blockchain gaming industry continues to grow. Microsoft is backing blockchain title StarHeroes, a multiplayer space shooter that utilizes NFTs. Likewise, Gala Games’s blockchain game, The Walking Dead: Empires, hosted a playtest in August. Even the man behind the Sims and Sims City, Will Wright, is developing a blockchain game.
