The AlterVerse is moving to the Unreal Engine — and we’ve got big plans in store for our first 3 worlds coming in early 2022.
What is the Unreal Engine?
According to Epic, the creators of the engine, it is “The world’s most open and advanced real-time 3D creation tool.”
The Unreal Engine 5 Trailer is what finally did it for us. It was painful to think about all the years we had spent working on the old engine. More than once over the years we had considered switching but we knew it would mean learning a whole new workflow and it would slow our production down temporarily, so we kept avoiding it, until we saw this:
So, what does the Unreal Engine do for the AlterVerse and what does it mean to you?
1. Greatly improved graphics and performance.
2. Faster iteration times (less time on the engine and more on the game).
3. A large pool of skilled artists and programmers to draw from for expansion.
4. A wealth of ready-made game assets made by highly talented artists on the Unreal Marketplace.
5. Portable from PC to consoles.
For the past several months we have been quietly (sorry about that) migrating to the Unreal Engine. We are now completing work on three exciting worlds which will be released in early 2022.
First up is a dazzling, retro sci-fi hub called Sky City pictured above. Alpha access to our Sky City demo will be given to many AlterVerse Citizens before the end of this year. We will be seeking people who have an interest in being on the City Council and bringing them in first.
Our first blockchain game, Disruption, is being recreated with a few interesting twists while, simultaneously, we are finishing up a new Sci-fi survival game code-named Rekt.
The new AlterVerse will be built on Efinity and will include new Play to Earn mechanics and lots of fun things to do! Of course, all previously purchased NFT’s and skins will be honored and featured on the new AlterVerse worlds.
Details, screenshots and video of all of the progress will be released on each of the games/worlds over the coming days and weeks!
We are very excited about the new direction and outlook for the AlterVerse! We hope you are too. If so, please click clap 50 times to help spread the word!
What is the AlterVerse?
At its core, the AlterVerse is an interconnected world and game creation platform. Think “decentralized Metaverse made by the users”. Gamers can simply play, go on adventures, and explore, or take it a step farther and buy a pre-made Metaverse node, launch it from their home PC, and immediately connect to our network to be accessible worldwide via our server browser interface — in a truly decentralized metaverse!
Soon, players will be able to modify their worlds or create them from scratch and add pre-made game mechanics if they choose.
All AlterVerse games are multi-player and feature tokenized skins, servers, and memberships using the Enjin platform. Play-to-Earn features are being added as well.
We at AlterVerse Inc. support small businesses, indie artists and developers. We believe in a decentralized future and are creating the AlterVerse with those values in mind. We will be featuring the work of hundreds of indie artists and providing a way for them to promote and display their work either in the worlds we build or in the various NFT Art galleries we are creating.
We have developed several systems you won’t find in most blockchain games, such as:
True decentralized server architecture
Integrated marketplace for NFT’s
Monetization system for registered server owners
Fully customizable male and female avatars
First and third person options
Weather systems — Rain, Snow, Thunder
Interactive, talking NPCs
Built-in voice chat
Think of AlterVerse servers as nodes on a vast, decentralized, yet interconnected network built by the people who traverse it.
