Epic Games, the company behind the massively popular game Fortnite, has announced the addition of two novel games to its platform – Project Red and Defimon. The gaming behemoth has entered into significant partnerships with these games, further solidifying its position as an innovator in the GameFi space and attracting millions of players globally
Epic Games library expands GameFi offerings
Epic Games has a staggering 230 million registered users and 34.3 million daily active users, making it a formidable presence in the gaming industry. The company’s commitment to constant innovation and evolution has made it a favorite among players worldwide. Earlier this year, it set a lofty target to incorporate 20 non-fungible tokens (NFTs) games into its ecosystem by the end of the year.
The company’s venture into NFT games began with Blankos Block Party, an engaging game that introduced players to a vibrant world teeming with collectible characters known as Blankos. The integration of NFTs transformed player interaction with in-game assets, allowing ownership, trading, and showcasing of unique virtual items. This adventurous step set the stage for the inclusion of Project Red and Defimon.
What to expect from the new games?
Project Red is a mafia-themed metaverse game that immerses players in an exciting underworld of organized crime. It offers players an array of experiences, including a player-versus-player (PVP) shooter mode and heart-racing battles. Additionally, the game features a multitude of in-game skins, cosmetics, and virtual land, enabling players to tailor their experiences and build their own criminal empires.
Defimon, on the other hand, is reminiscent of Pokemon, offering players an opportunity to explore a captivating open-world RPG experience to capture, trade, grow, and battle a variety of fantastical monsters, the Defimons.
Each Defimon represents a unique and valuable digital asset, as an NFT, that can be owned, collected, and used within the game’s environment. This game provides an immersive experience with captivating gameplay mechanics, strategic battles, and a growing roster of Defimons, enchanting blockchain enthusiasts and RPG lovers.
With its substantial user base and unwavering commitment to pushing gaming innovation, Epic Games continues to lead the industry. The company recently partnered with LEGO to explore the business opportunities on the Metaverse, thus displaying its commitment to continually enthralling millions of players and spearheading the adoption of blockchain-based gaming.
