The team behind ChainGuardians launches Cryptoverse, an immersive metaverse powered by Unreal Engine 5
The metaverse is all the rage. But what most people probably don’t realize is that there is also another “verse” called the omniverse, the largest of the classical verses, which surpasses the multiverse and even the metaverse. In recent months, companies have also launched different variants of the metaverse including the Petaverse–a metaverse world for pets.
There are now more than 160 companies operating across seven verticals building infrastructure and different types of the metaverse. The metaverse space continues to grow with new metaverse platforms being launched every day including the Cryptoverse that’s being unveiled today.
Today, the team behind ChainGuardians, a player-driven play-to-earn RPG game, announced the launch of Cryptoverse, an immersive metaverse powered by Unreal Engine 5. The Cryptoverse is the ultimate metaverse that aims to bring blockchain gaming to mass adoption.
The Cryptoverse is a 3D virtual world built with Unreal Engine 5, one of the most advanced game engines available on the market. Cryptoverse aims to join businesses and players into one interlocked ecosystem, giving value to both sides. As a proper metaverse, Cryptoverse will feature its unique social mechanics including different social layers, gamification mechanics, as well as assets that can be owned by players: avatars, vehicles, buildings, land plots — all powered by interoperable NFTs.
The Cryptoverse also brings the real-world expertise of experienced urban planners and cinematic artists is employed in designing a stylistically unique and immersive virtual world, promoting consistent long-term engagement in an evolving environment.
Just like in the real world, landowners and content creators in the Cryptoverse will be encouraged to keep their creations in line with the vision for the zone, however as the Cryptoverse aims to be decentralized, it will not be enforced. Inside The Cryptoverse, zones will determine the different stylistic features, content, and curation of the Metaverse.
How The Cryptoverse Works
Within The Cryptoverse, users can maintain provable ownership of their virtual space, also known as LAND, represented as an ERC-721 token or Non-Fungible Token (NFT). Ownership of users’ NFTs will be manifested through the Ethereum blockchain and will include advanced concepts such as NFT sharding and combination. The Cryptoverse is a social phenomenon foremost, offering players a chance to join new social circles in the Metaverse and acquire a reputation within this exciting new world.
The Cryptoverse also include sharding and compiling features that enable LAND owners the opportunity to monetize their LAND in different ways, for example: sell part of their originally purchased LAND, rent segments, or more coherently curate or control different experiences
The Cryptoverse is composed of an archipelago of eight islands, each representing a different Zone.
Each Zone has its unique aesthetic feel tailored to its community. Starting from some initial point, the players and inhabitants of each Zone are free to customize it to their liking, creating an organic and ever-evolving virtual world. There is also a center Zone, called The Hub, which will be the gathering place for all Cryptoversians. Styled with a cyberpunk theme, The Hub will be the melting pot for all other Zones and feature a unique, neon-infused, and fluid environment.
The strength of the Cryptoverse lies in its impressive technical realization. Using Unreal Engine 5, a game engine that is bordering on true photo-realism, the Cryptoverse will be unlike anything that preceded it. The platform will also feature VR, AR, and XR experiences powered by the latest technology and the top cinematic artists from word-class studios.
For builders, there will be advanced Dual Architecture SDKs to implement their animations and effects, while customizing the in-game world can be done with both no-code tools and an advanced modding SDK for the technically-savvy community. On the social layer, each LAND will offer maximum flexibility by leveraging NFT sharding and combination capabilities, as well as unique social engagement opportunities like the Prana system (a karma-based reputation system) and LAND clearing incentives.
Cryptoverse is soon launching a pre-sale for LAND inside The Hub and other zones, offering a 10% discount when purchasing from partner launchpads and NFT marketplaces. Cryptoverse will be governed by the CGG token used on ChainGuardians, giving continuity to the two ecosystems.
“The Cryptoverse is an immersive 3D virtual world built in Unreal 5 which is underpinned by blockchain technology. Within the Cryptoverse, users will be empowered to create, own LAND, govern and monetize experiences using CGG, the token which also underpins the ChainGuardians and ChainBoost ecosystem.” — Robbie Cochrane, Co-Founder of The Cryptoverse.
