Artemis: PUBG Director Confirms Working On Blockchain Metaverse Game
In Artemis You Can Commerce NFTs & Earn Actual Money
Player Unknown’s Battleground or more precisely known as PUBG is a Battle Royale game developed and published by PUBG Studios and directed by Brendan Greene, an Irish video game developer who had previously worked on famous games like DayZ: Battle Royale.
In a conversation with Hit Points, Brendan Greene revealed his plan to pivot to the metaverse and blockchain tech, with a new Non-fungible token (NFT) – clad game. Greene stated that its sole purpose is to make it available for everyone and not the money.
The development team is now working on Artemis, a digital metaverse game that can characteristic AI inhabitants, type of like a large Earth-sized Roblox world inhabited by NPCs the place in which you possibly can commerce NFTs and earn actual cash.
“I’m just going to do what I’m going to do,” Greene said (thanks, Eurogamer). “[Artemis is] this thing that we want to create, and it’s going to give people a lot of fun, a lot of pleasure, and a lot of meaningful things to do. But it doesn’t matter if it’s called the metaverse. I don’t care what people want to call it”.
There have been a lot of talks, for quite a long time now, about NFTs being included in video games. Previously, Ubisoft also showed its plan to get into the blockchain and NFT world, but its promotion was ineffective and thus it faced a lot of hatred and retaliation. As such, Ubisoft pulled out and mentioned that it was merely “in research mode”.
The reason for this retaliation is major because NFTs are not environmentally friendly as they are built on the back of cryptocurrency, an expensive alternative to money.
