Three Reasons You Should Be Excited about Ultiverse
At Ultiverse, we’re working on new reveals and exciting new details every day. As we continue to build our social gaming metaverse, which will feature AAA games on blockchain, an immersive VR-compatible world, and Web3 integration, we’re inching ever-closer to the launch of various products that you’ll ultimately use in the Ultiverse ecosystem.
We can’t wait to share everything with you, but as a primer for those new to our community, we want to give you some background details on three of the most important facets of Ultiverse:
- Endless Loop
- Electric Sheep NFT
These three underpin a lot of what we’re doing right now with Ultiverse and should give you a good idea of what is to come.
Terminus is the decentralized virtual metaverse platform in Ultiverse, that is built on BNB Chain using Unreal Engine 5. It’s our central hub where users can interact will others all in real-time while browsing and discovering content. They will also be able to access lands of various sizes where the owners are empowered to build and create to their heart’s content.
You can think of Terminus like the city that you are based in right now. Just like that city, Terminus has land that is used for residences, it has land that is used for public buildings, it has land that is used for the economic infrastructures we see in DeFi, as well as entertainment options, NFT galleries and marketplaces, Guilds, transportation hubs, a launchpad for users to create their own experiences and various facets of the social environment where people can interact with each other.
Terminus will operate in the same way as a real city, offering our users access to all of these amenities and more, making your stay an immersive, exciting experience. Essentially, Ultiverse has taken the essentials of a real-world city and created them on-chain.
From the earliest concepts of Ultiverse, the team regarded graphical fidelity as a crucial tenet of the platform, as it’s one of the keys to providing a truly immersive AAA gaming experiences for players. With that goal in mind, Ultiverse is being developed using the groundbreaking Unreal Engine 5. By taking full advantage of new features such as Lumen and Nanite, Terminus will feature photorealistic models and dynamic lighting all rendered in real-time.
Terminus also acts as a portal, with gates connecting users to all the games available on the Ultiverse platform. The first of these games will be Endless Loop, an MMORPG also built on Unreal Engine 5.
What is an MMORPG? Well, “Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games” involve thousands or possibly even millions of people playing simultaneously. Endless Loop will be an MMORPG, inviting large groups of users to play and interact with one another, similar in concept to the likes of World of Warcraft.
In Endless Loop, humanity’s irresponsible and non-sustainable actions on Earth have led to an environment that is severly degraded, one that is no longer suitable for the human race to thrive and prosper. Thus, humanity following the discovery of faster than light travel, took to the stars in search of salvation and prosperity. This has led to a new age of exploration as these pioneers discovered planets that contained alien lifeforms, new resources and even relics and artifacts from seemingly extinct intelligent alien civilizations. These new resources and artifacts have resulted in new techonlogies being within the grasp of humanity, with the potential to forever change our destiny.
Endless Loop Consists of 3 Primary Elements:
- Space Stations
Endless Loop features an enormous galaxy made up of numerous planets, each of which has its own unique landscapes and resources for mining, exploring, and hunting. Players can explore these galaxies, crafting and building facilities that allow them better protection from enemies or which offer higher mining efficiency.
In order to travel between these planets, players will be required to work together to build space stations around a planet’s orbit. This process will mirror the process of SocialFi crowdfunding with in-game resources. You incentivize other users to help you out on your planetary mission, creating a process that mirrors real-world economic dynamics. Once you’ve created your space station, you can then travel to the specified planet using a spaceship.
In Endless Loop, the core gameplay will revolve around exploring, questing, mining, and crafting as you build up your character resources, while you’ll also be able to hunt and fight alien creatures and even domesticate and breed the more docile species in both PVE and PVP game modes. Players will be able to team up with other players to form Guilds, and ultimately lead to massive Guild wars as you fight to attain higher yields.
Endless Loop will feature a variety of NFTs, available for the player to craft once they possess the necessary blueprint and resources needed. To name just a few, players will have the option to craft various weapons and gear that are key to survival, vehicles used to traverse across the alien planets and structures used in base building. All these NFTs can be brought back to Terminus to be bought and sold in the marketplace.
At the core of the economy of Endless Loop will be the utility token found in the game. The resources gained by players via mining can be coverted to our utility token and then brought to Terminus where players will be able to swap on DEXs or purchase NFTs ranging from comestic upgrades for their player avatar to new weapons, gear and equipment for usage in Endless Loop.
The longterm sustainability of the economy within Endless Loop is a focal point for our team and finding the right balance with player rewards is crucial. While we are a Play-To-Earn game, we want to circumvent a common issue found in other offerings in the space where those willing to invest a larger amount of funds into the experience often results in other players not being able to compete on a similar level. Therefore Endless Loop is structured where players are incentivized to band together in order to complete higher level quests that are available and to craft the various higher level ingame NFTs. Appealing to a wide spectrum of gamers from different economic backgrounds is very important to us and we’ve built the economy in a way where all players can find a suitable and more importantly, a fun role in the larger ecosystem regardless of their investment.
Electric Sheep NFT
Finally, let’s talk about our NFT collections. Ultiverse will feature NFT collections that allow players to unlock new possibilities. Our very first, genesis collection of PFPs called Electric Sheep, features highly detailed avatars made up of 12 individual parts, hand drawn in a cyberpunk aesthetic and backed by extensive lore.
Holders of our Electric Sheep NFTs will be able to import them into Terminus, where these NFTs will be represented by a corresponding and unique 1-of-1 3D avatar.
Electric Sheep will provide users with a variety of additional utilities and bonuses for holders, which we will be announcing in the future.
So there you have it. These three facets of Ultiverse are a good indication of the vast gaming experience that players will soon be able to enjoy with Ultiverse. We’re incredibly excited and we can’t wait to reveal more good news soon!
Ultiverse is building the social gaming metaverse that connects Web3 with an immersive VR compatible virtual world. By empowering players of various economic abilities to build mutually beneficial relationships, Ultiverse is aimed at creating a first-of-its-kind MetaFi.
