According to a report by wax, 75% of online gamers want to exchange virtual assets for a currency that they can use on other platforms and in real life.
In the past, players could only play online games for the fun of it; there was no way for them to convert that thrill to ‘earnings.’ The virtual world (that includes games) was utterly distant from the physical world.
Cryptocurrency has become a ‘game changer’ in recent years, creating an avenue for players to collect and trade the collectibles they’ve earned while playing games, and has ushered in a new era in the gaming industry widely referred to as GameFi. In this article, we would look at The Wasted Lands, a blockchain-based metaverse game set in the post-apocalyptic world, and how it intends to propel the GameFi industry with its recent listing on Kucoin amongst other things.
The Wasted Lands is a pioneer sci-fi game to integrate multiple exciting gaming elements into its role-playing gameplay within a post-apocalyptic metaverse, The Wasted-Verse. With distinctive gaming features revolving around its metaverse ecosystems such as Match 3 Puzzle RPG, Racing, and Shelter Building game, The Wasted Lands is fully equipped to provide an engaging player experience.
The Wasted-verse’s avatar NFTs collection allows players to morph into their own unique game personas and start exploring this fantasy world, which further enhances their immersion in the game.
The Wasted Lands will be one of the first blockchain games to be listed on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. The game will be made available for download on these platforms starting from around mid-March.
