Ascenders releases whitepaper
The 36-page whitepaper for the upcoming third-person multiplayer open-world action RPG on the Avalanche network includes detailed info on the game, the player-driven economy, player-owned guilds and more.
Legendary Foundry Games has released the whitepaper for their upcoming multiplayer open-world action RPG, Ascenders.
The whitepaper contains info on the game, on the decentralized, player-driven economy, the tokenomics, player-owned guilds and more.
Built on the Avalanche network and inspired by The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and EVE Online, Ascenders has players explore a beautiful sci-fantasy world in third-person view while progressing through the main storyline. As you roam and fight through this dangerous alien planet called Ascension, you’ll also come across numerous different side missions “that take you on smaller adventures and unique story vignettes for extra rewards.”
It’s in development in Unreal Engine 5 and is set to feature a dual-token economy: the Ascenders Governance Council ($AGC) and Glow Gem ($GG). $AGC is capped at 1 billion total supply and will be used for Avalanche subnet transaction fees, staking, accessing VIP tournaments and events and more, while $GG is uncapped and is the main currency used in-game for upgrading and crafting tradable NFTs, covering most on-chain transaction fees as well as for “purchasing services at landowner buildings, such as crafting gear or refining resources.” Glow Gems can be earned by completing quests, winning tournaments, lending, selling resources on the in-game DEX and more.
The game’s roadmap is divided into 8 phases, with the first two completed. No timeframes are included in these phases, though the description in the game’s trailer on YouTube states that Ascenders is slated for release in Q4 2023. A playable demo for Windows and Mac is available for download on the game’s website.
