Engine, an innovative gaming protocol built to simplify game development on the blockchain, will be releasing its first in-house play-to-earn (P2E) game. Pioneering the next generation of 3D shooters in the crypto industry, Engine aims to bring a high-quality experience that will thrill gamers and crypto lovers alike.
The new title, which is scheduled for release on the 10th of April, is inspired by the likes of Fortnite and features beautiful artistry and cutting-edge graphics built on the powerful Unreal Engine. With engaging shooting mechanics and a thrilling soundtrack, there is growing hype behind Engine’s first venture into game development.
Through the new game, Engine aims to establish a foothold and serve the rapidly expanding blockchain gaming industry.
Bridging blockchain technology into mainstream gaming
Both the mainstream gaming community and major video game studios are hesitant to delve into blockchain technology and non-fungible tokens (NFTs). Launched in late 2021, Engine is a revolutionary protocol that aims to bridge the world of traditional gaming with blockchain.
Engine’s toolset enables both indie and large gaming studios to easily integrate blockchain technology into their games. In doing so, studios can focus exclusively on what they do best, which is game development, while Engine takes care of blockchain and smart contract implementation.
Beloved games such as Fortnite, Overwatch, and League of Legends can now easily integrate crypto rewards, player-versus-player (PvP) wagering, and other chances to set up new revenue and make their economies flourish like never before through the play-to-earn model.
The Engine protocol attaches itself to the data stored on game servers and records it on the blockchain. Files containing characters’ stats, scores, and other information are uploaded once onto the blockchain and then uploaded in specific time intervals. Thanks to its immutability features, blockchain ensures the risks of hacking or cheating the game system are minimized.
The Engine protocol also has its own native ERC-20 token, $ENGN, and supports game developers through the ENGN arcade, its library of play-to-earn games. Engine also has its own NFT marketplace planned and plans to make its first move into the metaverse through its upcoming virtual reality (VR) lounge.
With a new game and several features in the pipeline, the Engine ecosystem has an ambitious vision for the mainstream gaming industry. Soon gaming developers and studios will have all the tools necessary to access decentralized technologies and encrypted servers, thus establishing new audiences and making the leap towards NFTs, play-to-earn, and the metaverse.
