With the growing cryptocurrency market in the Philippines, BitPinas is here to share the Five Play-to-Earn Games that we should keep an eye on this October.
According to Play to Earn Online Magazine, Star Atlas is among the most anticipated blockchain-powered space games. This game on the Solana blockchain prides itself on using high-end technology, including graphics powered by Unreal Engine 5.0. Dubbed this month as High-Octane October, the developers will reveal player factions, a mini-game, and two new ships that went for sale last October Seven.
Star Atlas aims to create galactic, space opera MMO where players control the markets and dictate the ebb and flow of goods and products. The rise or fall of various factions will happen because of player actions, not a directed script.
Star Atlas Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Mike Wagner revealed that this play-to-earn game “is more complex than it sounds.”
On its face, Star Atlas is an MMO set in the year 2620. The universe has been colonized, and balkanized. Three factions split control, while somewhere in the deepest, most dangerous sector of space, something extremely valuable lurks. Players can earn in-game currency ($ATLAS and $POLIS, more on that below), buy anything from ships to space stations to land, and go on missions.
Aavegotchi will have a huge role in hyping the market that are into pixelated ghosts this October due to its first land sale. With the Rarity Farming helping to add more fuel to the hype for Aavegotchi.
There will be a total of 20,000 REALM parcels that will be tagged as for sale together with Gotchi raffle tickets.
So far, Aavegotchi’s NFT sales have sold out quickly recently, and the interested market needs to invest big amounts to be a part of it. But these assets hold their value and are very wanted.
Aavegotchis are rare crypto-collectibles living on the Ethereum blockchain, backed by the ERC721 standard used in popular blockchain games such as Cryptokitties, Axie Infinity, and Cryptovoxels. Rumor has it that Aavegotchis are actually the ghosts of liquidated yield farmers determined to return and bring honor to their familia. Aavegotchi introduces many innovations into the blockchain gaming sphere, including DeFi token collateral stakes, dynamic rarity, rarity farming, DAO-governed game mechanics, and an open metaverse with smart contract interoperability and in-world town hall style voting. Just like the original Tamagotchi introduced the world to digital pets, Aavegotchi introduces the world to playable NFTs, backed by digital value. (DappRadar’s “What is Aavegotchi?” section)
According to Wallet Investor’s prediction, around 370% revenue increase will happen in the next five years when the interested market starts to invest this year.
“Based on our forecasts, a long-term increase is expected, the price prognosis for 2026-10-10 is 7.867 US Dollars. With a 5-year investment, the revenue is expected to be around +369.39%. Your current $100 investment may be up to $469.39 in 2026.”
Aavegotchi combines DeFi and financial assets with gaming and play-to-earn.
Voxie Tactics is a tactical RPG. Gamers can play against the computer by exploring the world of Voxtopia, or against others in the PVP Arena.
Voxie Tactics will feature true player ownership that will allow players to earn cryptocurrency and in-game NFT items that can be sold or traded.
Voxies is an NFT project on the Ethereum blockchain. Voxies are a lovable combination of cute voxels characters, adorable personalities and collectible NFT technology. 10,000 unique and individual Voxel characters. The ONLY fully animated 3D NFT collectible. (Voxies.io’s “About Voxies” section)
Voxie Tactics’ game demo will be released on October 22.
According to the data from DappRadar, Splinterlands was the most active application last September.
Staking an SPS token will give a VOUCHER token in October. VOUCHER tokens are needed to be able to buy card packs for Splinterlands: Chaos Legion expansion set.
Splinterlands is a collectible trading multiplayer card game with design that will make you think of a symbiosis between pokemon card games and World of Warcraft characters. The game has a developed storytelling based on a mystical world. Get in the game, conquer a world or solve quests. (DappRadar’s “What is Splinterlands?” section)
Splinterlands, despite having too much hype on the market right now, haven’t introduced land gameplay yet, but will most likely be released in 2022.
GUILD OF GUARDIANS
Though the Guild of Guardians’ mobile action RPG are yet to be released in 2022, it already opened a lot of offers in the market.
Guild of Guardians still sells rare heroes with a $1250.00 (~63,000.00 php) price tag. And the much-wanted pets will be available in the market this month. An offer that can be sold without an official announcement (The very reason why we need to keep an eye with this one).
“Previously Guild of Guardians has successfully dropped their epic heroes without revealing the launch moment beforehand. The result: no gas wars, but one side of the world being annoyed,” Play to Earn Online Magazine stated.
Guild Of Guardians is a mobile RPG which will allow players to turn their gaming passions into assets. It will be a multiplayer, fantasy, action RPG where players build their dream team of ‘Guardians’ and compete in a guild to earn epic rewards. Guild of Guardians is developed by Stepico and published by Immutable. Stepico Games is a leading Ukrainian game development studio with a team of more than 80 designers, artists and developers. They have developed multiple mobile titles in the strategy and RPG space, which have received more than 5 million downloads. Immutable is an industry leading $17m VC-funded blockchain company backed by investors such as Naspers, Galaxy Digital and Coinbase. They are responsible for launching the most successful blockchain Trading Card Game, Gods Unchained, which is headed up by Chris Clay, the former director of Magic the Gathering Arena.
