Since the introduction of Bitcoin in 2009, blockchain technology has been infiltrating different industries and sectors across the globe. In recent years, the gaming industry has developed blockchain-based games and platforms. The realm of Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games (MMORPGs) is one area where blockchain is beginning to have a considerable impact as it enables gamers to experience the genre in an entirely new way.

What are MMORPGs?

For those who are unfamiliar, MMORPGs are online games that allow users to engage in virtual worlds. They usually have large open areas, a large and diversified player community, and complex questing and leveling systems. World of Warcraft, Final Fantasy XIV, and The Elder Scrolls Online are among the most popular massive multiplayer online role-playing games.

For years, the typical MMORPG experience has mostly remained stagnant and predictable, but blockchain technology is beginning to change that. Blockchain-based games are getting new features and gameplay systems, giving players more power and ownership over their in-game experiences. Many blockchain-based games, for example, include player-run economies where users may exchange virtual goods and services for cryptocurrencies. This allows for a far more fluid and dynamic in-game economy and a way for users to earn real-world dollars while playing the game.

Another way that blockchain is influencing MMORPGs is the introduction of non-fungible coins (NFTs). NFTs are digital assets kept on the blockchain that can be used to represent ownership of in-game things, enabling users to trade and sell their items outside of the game on secondary markets. This greatly increases the possibility of player-to-player interactions and transactions that bridges both the virtual and the real world.

Into the ‘MetaVerse’

SageVerse is a new free-to-play MetaMMORPG with significant Asian fantasy and martial arts aesthetics and a distinct Western cultural sense. 

The game encourages traditional players to try Web3 since it prioritizes next generation game development, community collaboration, and places the P2E aspect in the background to develop organically within the  economic systems already native to MMORPGS, setting it apart from most previous Metaverse-based GameFi initiatives.

SageVerse players will be able to own and develop every aspect of their characters, skills, items, and virtual real estate. While earning in-game currencies, which will all be dedicated to the play-to-earn ecosystem, game development and maintenance.

“Sageverse will be a place where gamers, musicians, physical artists, visual artists, and Crypto/Nft fans can immerse themselves in a world of fantasy in a one-of-a-kind Metaverse that offers the latest in MMORPG, P2E, and collaborative community experiences. Together, our community will receive exclusive access to an inclusive Metaverse that will rule the Web3 world, while creating more interesting and innovative ways to introduce this new technology to popular culture.” Gilliam concludes.
