Star Atlas Trailer
Wasn’t that awesome!? Let me tell you a bit more and give you the grand overview of Star Atlas. Star Atlas is a multifaceted grand strategy real-time game of space exploration, conquest, political intrigue, and more. Star Atlas is a virtual gaming metaverse based in the year 2620. In this distant future, three major factions have emerged:
- (1) The MUD Territory governed by humankind
- (2) The ONI Region as a consortium of alien races
- (3) The Ustur Sector controlled by sentient androids.
These factions are in an ongoing struggle for resources, territorial conquest, and political domination. You, a faction citizen of Star Atlas, will have the ability to influence the outcome of this intergalactic conflict while creating the opportunity to earn rewards for your contributions.
The metaverse introduces a unique gaming experience through the combination of both traditional core games and blockchain mechanics. It will be a Serverless Massively Multiplayer Online Game using the Solana Blockchain Built on Unreal Engine 5 using Nanite graphics technology that makes cinema-quality real-time environments possible.
Play to earn
Now that you know a little bit about the game, Let’s talk about play to earn. There are four unique asset pillars to the economy of Star Atlas. All of them are represented both on-chain and in-game in some form:
- Land ownership NFTs
- Monetary assets (ATLAS and POLIS, implemented as tokens)
- In-game items (ships, equipment, crew, ship components, buildings, and blueprints, food)
- In-game resources (fungible assets that are produced by miners and consumed by production)
Star Atlas provides a unique opportunity for players to extract in-game virtual earnings into real-world income. Digital assets owned always belong to the holder, and crypto assets earned can be converted into fiat currencies friction-free. Star Atlas has two fungible tokens that fuel all operations: POLIS and ATLAS. Players can earn these tokens as in-game rewards.
Star Atlas NFTs
NFTs are Non-Fungible Tokens. Tokenized in-game assets. Players will be able to accumulate all in-game assets as NFTs that can be traded and sold on the Star Atlas Marketplace creating real value and ownership to the player. Non-fungible tokens obtained and traded within Star Atlas create an economy that replicates the tangibility of real-world assets and ownership.
