Yield Guild Games has partnered with 8 new play-to-earn games so its members can begin to play with zero upfront costs. This brings the total partnerships of YGG to 18 games, including Axie Infinity and Splinterlands.
How does YGG choose which games to invest and bring its players into? The 8 games, the guild said, were identified to have strong play-to-earn models. As Gabby Dizon, YGG co-founder, said before, the guild only invest in games where the non-fungible tokens (NFT) assets can generate yield.
Community involvement is also a key factor, says Sarutobi Sasuke, Head of Partnerships at YGG. “The team reviews the gameplay and game economics to ensure that the games have a robust and fair game economy that rewards players adequately for the time and effort put in by them.”
Below are the new games that YGG partnered with. All of these games have NFTs and yield generating features as a core mechanic.
