The medieval period, known for its lore of lords, ladies, castles, and chivalry, forms the foundation for many fantasy games. Now, the blockchain is set to infuse this rich history with a modern twist in the form of “Medieval Empires”, a game looking to pioneer digital ownership in this iconic age while also spearheading expansion into the MENA market.
- Medieval Empires aims to provide an immersive Web 3.0 experience
- Game mechanics feature blockchain technology for a “play and own” experience
- Immutable’s zkEVM technology powers the game’s infrastructure
- Both companies set sights on expanding web3 gaming in the MENA region
- Medieval Empires showcases strong community support even before launch
Medieval Empires: An Overview
Medieval Empires is more than just another strategy game; it’s a mid-core multiplayer online platform where players assume the roles of medieval war heroes. As players traverse this world, they transform their initial village into a booming empire. Making the game even more intriguing is the involvement of Engin Altan Düzyatan, renowned for his portrayal of Ertuğrul Gazi, adding to the game’s allure for fans of the actor and the character.
Blockchain: At the Game’s Heart
What sets Medieval Empires apart is its incorporation of blockchain technology, granting players an unparalleled sense of ownership. Every in-game asset, be it gear or land, can be purchased and truly owned by the player. This ownership isn’t just symbolic; it’s a pivotal part of daily missions, tasks, and overarching story missions.
Engaging Player vs. Environment
In a realm where threats loom large, players must prepare defenses against both computer-generated adversaries and fellow players. In addition to its PvE environment, Medieval Empires promises intense player vs. player (PvP) confrontations, enabling gamers to earn their place in the annals of online glory.
Scaling with Immutable zkEVM
Turning such an ambitious project into reality requires robust infrastructure. Enter Immutable zkEVM, an EVM-compatible zk-rollup technology. Through it, the developers can design bespoke smart contracts for assets, facilitating intricate gameplay mechanics, effective tokenomics, and streamlined, cost-effective trading experiences.
Unlocking MENA’s Potential
The collaboration with Medieval Empires marks a strategic expansion for Immutable into the MENA region. Given Medieval Empires’ stronghold in the Turkish market and their aligned vision of crafting compelling experiences, both entities are set to harness the burgeoning appetite for web3 gaming in the region. Dave Shin, representing Immutable, emphasized the significance of this alliance, valuing the insights offered by Medieval Empires into the MENA gaming domain.
Shared Vision for Web3 Gaming
On the other side, Assad Dar of Medieval Empires expressed enthusiasm about the partnership with Immutable, expressing confidence in delivering a top-notch blockchain game experience for players.
Community Support & Development Milestones
Even though still in its infancy, Medieval Empires has already created waves in the gaming community. Having raised an impressive $7 million, the game’s fan base is robust, with a staggering 175,000 followers across multiple platforms. Notably, before the official game release, the developers made in-game land purchasable on OpenSea, which saw an impressive trading volume of 95 ETH.
Medieval Empires stands as a testament to the untapped potential of integrating rich historical themes with modern tech. The partnership between Medieval Empires and Immutable, especially their focus on the MENA region, could well set the stage for a new era of gaming, where digital ownership and immersive experiences go hand in hand.
