Ultra and Microids Announce Publishing Partnership for Available and Upcoming Titles

As part of the multi-year partnership, Ultra and Microids team up to provide users with available and upcoming titles and will explore the NFT space with Ultra’s technology

Microids is a distinguished French video game developer and publisher with various legendary titles. The team has worked with renowned names in the video game industry, including but not limited to Pendulo Studios, Eden Studios, Benoît Sokal, Paul Cuisset, and Pierre Adane.

Bonjour Microids

The folks at Microids have seen the progress made by Ultra over the years as we’ve been in talks about the evolving nature of the platform. With their continuous support, we’ve been in discussions on how our services can amplify their titles, providing a range of new and exciting functionality to existing and upcoming games.

We’re excited to be teaming up with Microids to provide players with a range of games to enjoy throughout the closed beta and well into the public release. Upcoming games will also be added in 2022 and the years to come as the partnership evolves.

“We’ve been discussing the various possibilities that Ultra can provide games with Microids for years and they’ve seen our technology evolve with each catch up. Now that we’re almost ready to release Ultra Games to the public, we’re pleased to have Microids on board as a publishing partner. Microids is a forward thinking publisher and game developer and we’ll continue to see the partnership grow as we work together on integrating our key technologies into their larger ecosystem.”

Nicolas Gilot, Co-CEO of Ultra

We’ll be announcing the first batch of games that’ll be available on the platform on our gaming Twitter in the coming days — make sure to follow so you don’t miss it!

Expanding the possibilities

As well as Ultra distributing Microids’ games, we’ll be exploring the NFT space with them to provide added value to both of our communities. With Ultra’s robust NFT technology, we’ll team up to tokenize games and in-game content, as well as going beyond the digital space to provide added value to physical items.

“We are eager and excited to partner with Ultra and have the opportunity to reach players through their digital distribution channel, using block chain technology as well as creating and selling NFTs based on our IPs to our fans in the very near future. As they are at the cutting edge of technology as an entertainment platform, we are certain that we will form a long term and successful partnership.”

Yves Bléhaut SVP, Strategic Partnerships, Microids SA

Over the course of our multi-year partnership we’ll be working together to push the boundaries of gaming as we know it, giving players a chance to explore the Ultraverse in all its glory and provide developers with a more even playing ground.

More details will be provided as our partnership flourishes.

Make the most of your games

No more are the days where you buy a game, play them, and leave them collecting figurative dust in your games library once you’re done with them. With Ultra, you’ll be able to trade and sell your games on the NFT marketplace, providing you with the opportunity to finally have more freedom when it comes to owning your digital items.

This second-hand market is designed to fully support the developers involved as Ultra provides them with complete control on how and when their games are distributed on the marketplace. Our GDC has a variety of customisable options for developers, including but not limited to choosing the minimum resale price, the period at which it can be sold in, and geographically where it can be resold.

Get rewarded

On Ultra, we reward players for sharing their love for games with their friends. Our 2-step referral program provides players with rewards for each time they bring someone new to the platform, giving you all the chance to earn through your experience with us. Your rewards will be available in your Ultra Wallet where you’ll have the chance to spend on anything within the platform. Whether you want to try out the latest titles to drop on Ultra Games or purchase one of the NFTs on our marketplace, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

Streamers and content creators, we got you too! Our simple promoter program rewards you for sharing gameplay and speaking about your favourite titles on Ultra. Simply share and speak about your favourite games on Ultra and get rewarded for supporting the title when someone purchases the game through your special link.

Join the Ultraverse

We’re releasing the Ultra platform application by application so you can experience the growth of our ecosystem with us.

Jump into our world, designed specifically for you, and gain access to your Ultra Wallet and Theta.tv so you can secure your unique username, use your referral link, and watch livestreams. Our next application to be publicly available will be the NFT marketplace where you can buy and resell NFTs, and after that Ultra Games and many other apps will be available to everyone.
