3 min readDec 16, 2021


Announced in 2021 at NFT.NYC (link) MetalCore represents a bold vision for the future of NFT gaming–Perion has moved to secure an early allocation of US$100,000 of MGT governance tokens, plus an additional $100,000 of in-game NFT assets–We are incredibly excited to be involved at the ground floor of what looks to be a monumental project

MetalCore’s vision is a world class gaming experience, seamlessly integrating NFTs across a robust gameplay ecosystem, bolstered by real-world stakes, all centring upon team driven combat and decision making

What is MetalCore?

MetalCore is a first-in-class massively multiplayer mech based combat NFT game–In a futuristic dystopian open-world setting, players will engage in a multitude of gameplay types centred around territory control including: Player Vs. Player (PvP), Player Vs. Environment (PvE), Battle Royale, turn-based strategy, and Real-Time Strategy experiences. Huge 50v50 maps will be a cornerstone of the initial MetalCore gameplay loop and represents and exciting testbed for many recently formed NFT guilds and gaming organisations to face off in high stakes, territory driven combat


Players of MetalCore will find themselves in the dystopian landscape of the planet TRM-175 Kerebos, 1500 years into the future; survival is uncertain and distrust amongst the remaining factions of humanity is at an extreme. Factions wilffl battle it out amongst the beautiful backdrop of this resource rich environment in order to control territory and ultimately hold the claim of conquering the planet

NFTs and Fungible tokens

Utilising the in-game token FAB, players will level their NFT mech assets in addition to customizing their unique vehicles, weapons and bases. Players and guilds alike will be able to exchange, sell and rent in-game assets, building their way to a powerful foothold within the MetalCore universe
