Leading game engine Unity announces web3 tools for developers
The Asset Store of game engine Unity has now introduced a new category called “decentralization,” with the aim of promoting Web3 tools and protocols to its developer community. This step is crucial for the future of blockchain games and marks Unity’s efforts to broaden its offerings in support of Web3 gaming tools.
Unity counts on several blockchain-based partners
The company has already approved 13 distinct solutions from reputable brands such as Algorand, Aptos Labs, Dapper Labs, ImmutableX, Solana, Tezos, ConsenSys’ Infura, and MetaMask for developer use.
For the future of blockchain games, it is critical that Unity recognizes and promotes Web3 gaming tools. Unity’s software is frequently used by indie developers to create games, and some of the most popular Web3 titles, including The Sandbox, Decentraland, and Dogamí, were also developed using Unity.
Unity only approves Web3 tools that meet its criteria for legitimacy, reliability, and evolution, meaning that they are created by reputable firms, have reliable features and support, and are continuously maintained by their creators.
Unity’s Asset Store
With Unity’s Asset Store, developers can effortlessly incorporate the latest Web3 gaming tools into their projects. The Asset Store is a comprehensive resource for game developers, featuring an extensive collection of tools, assets, and plugins.
Web3 blockchain tools can be conveniently reviewed on a one-to-five-star rating system, similar to other assets available in the store. This additional layer of ease of adoption is expected to facilitate the integration of Web3 tools into Unity projects.
Unity’s Asset Store now features Web3 gaming tools that offer several benefits to developers, including the opportunity to create distinctive gaming experiences, utilize smart contracts to generate non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and integrate blockchain technology to facilitate decentralized economies within games.
Unity’s website states that the company’s objective is to enable creators to produce the most engaging experiences for players. This development could foster the emergence of gaming models built on decentralized networks, drawing in new players and developers to the blockchain gaming ecosystem.
